Jay Ryan who guested in The Tribe series 4 as a ‘Blue’, has landed an amazing lead role in the US. He’ll be playing the beast (named Vincent Koslow) in American network CW’s Beauty And The Beast. He’ll star opposite Smallville (and Edgemont!) star Kristin Kreuk who is playing Catherine Chandler – the beauty.
More recently Jay Ryan appeared in a guest role on Terra Nova. Back in New Zealand he was the lead male in the TV series Go Girls. He starred in Australian soap Neighbours as Jack Scully playing the boyfriend to Michelle Ang’s Lori Lee.
