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.
Here’s a preview video of the series, aimed at the Vampire Diaries/Twilight/Gossip Girl audience:
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.
With thanks to @bertrigby/Catherine for the info :D
Jay who? Jay Ryan
! Jay Ryan had a guest spot in The Tribe series 4 playing a ‘Blue’. He threatened to cut off Mouse’s hair if she didn’t give him her game code.
Jay Ryan is also known for his role as Jack Scully in Australian soap Neighbours. Back then he was credited as Jay Bunyan and sharing an appartment with fellow Neighbours star Michelle Ang (Tai-San in The Tribe) who played Lori Lee in the Aussie soap.
Okay it’s a bit out of the blue, but I’m enjoying watching Terra Nova, the new American series which is backed by Steven Spielberg (Jurassic Park). Seeing a familiar (Tribe associated) face was great!
In episode 6 of season 1, Bylaw, Jay Ryan plays the character Curran. He is an officer who’s friend/colleague is murdered. Jay will re-appear later on in the series in the episode ‘Proof’.
Jay Ryan, more recently, has played the lead male character Kevin in TVNZ’s Go Girls.
I’ll update this post with a screen cap of Jay in The Tribe if I can get time to make one.
(The Tribe’s wee KC) sure is all grown up now. Aside from battling evil in Power Rangers RPM, Ari joined fellow Tribe cast alumni in a week long appearance on New Zealand soap Shortland Street
earlier this month.
His appearance saw him join the cast of Shorty as Brodie Kemp, a pal to Hunter McKay who is played by Lee Donoghue, who was Spike in The Tribe. Yay. Here’s a scene of the two of them together…
Ari Boyland will again be appearing on New Zealand screens in the TVNZ series Go Girls, where he will be reprising his role of Scott in the second series/season which started showing this month.
