Here’s 5 fast facts about Ryker!
He’s young but already has some great accomplishments.
Playing Buddy Layman in The Diviners (I was the only minor cast). It was memorizing over 100 pages and doing 9 shows in front of a live audience. Interviewing Tiffany Haddish and Byron Allen at Byron Allen’s Oscar Gala would be another one.
But he is not immune to nerves!
Was totally prepared for an audition with Disney director Howard M. My coach was sure I would be at least pinned. It was a happy scene and my nerves got to me and I could barely talk much less smile. I looked and sounded angry. He had me do it 3 times too. It was like he knew I could do it.
He feels the biggest negative pressure for teens is _____
On-line hate, jealousy and bullying. I always talk to my parents about how to handle it and if it’s a friend doing it, I talk to them. I try to move on and rise above if it’s directed at me.
He’s got some simple tastes.
Love sushi, country life and would choose hanging out with a couple of friends at home over a big party.
He’ll eat anything except THIS:
Fried butter…I really like all food
