Michelle Ryan Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Apr 22, 1984
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Prior to her role as the new Bionic Woman, U.K. audiences were familiar with British actress Michelle Ryan thanks to her five-year run (2000-2005) as Zoe Slater on the long-running BBC soap opera [[Feature~V322988~EastEnders~eastenders[tvseries]]]. After she left that series, a role in [[Performer~P344131~Sean Ellis~seanellis]]' moderately successful indie comedy [[Feature~V352641~Cashback~cashback]] (2006), as Suzy, the ex-girlfriend of Ben ([[Performer~P230253~Sean Biggerstaff~seanbiggerstaff]]) gained her some notice on the festival circuit, and U.K. audiences saw more of her on the modern-day Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde retelling [[Feature~V399754~Jekyll~jekyll]]. It wasn't until her resuscitation of Jaime Sommers in the late-2007 NBC revamp of the 1970s adventure drama [[Feature~V400687~The Bionic Woman~thebionicwoman[tvseries]]], however, that Ryan achieved significant international notice. Unfortunately, the series stumbled after initially drawing an impressive audience, and once the production was halted due to the writers' strike -- after only eight episodes had aired -- the show failed to be renewed. That same year, Ryan also appeared in the features [[Feature~V389797~Flick~flick]] and [[Feature~V386618~I Want Candy~iwantcandy]]. The former is a British horror picture about a psychotic, rampaging 1950s rock & roll rebel, the latter, a smarmy sex comedy about a couple of college students who get in over their heads when attempting to produce a porno film with a sleazy starlet ([[Performer~P239364~Carmen Electra~carmenelectra]]) as their lead. In the years to come, Ryan would find ongoing success on shows like Merlin and in films like Cleanskin and Love's Kitchen. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
