Ryan also praised his teachers — including present and past drama instructors Annette Gebhardt and Allison Wilkes, respectively — who helped hone his theatrical arts skills.

"They're incredible," he said. "They've been behind me in everything I do."

"Chase your dreams," Ryan said. "If you don't get the role you want, keep your head up and keep working. The arts kind of shape who you are."
