Wiki Biography: A vivacious young actress with spirit, sparkle and an intellect far beyond her years, Ryan Newman is swiftly emerging as one of Hollywood's exceptional young talents.
At an early age, Ryan was determined to pursue a career in entertainment. Her enthusiasm and natural talent caught the attention of casting directors. With a number of national print ads under her belt, Ryan booked the first commercial she ever auditioned for, an experience that proved Ryan's passion for acting was not without considerable talent and drive. At the shoot, the directors found themselves without the Spanish-language counterpart to Ryan's English-language role.
