Spotlight on CYT Alumni Ryan Hansen

Do you know Ryan Hansen? There are several reasons his name may ring a bell.

1. You were in a show with him / saw him in a show at CYT or CCT in San Diego (Bye Bye Birdie, Alice, Grease, Little Women…)
2. You’re familiar with his various roles in TV and movies (perhaps most notably, his character Dick Casablancas on the TV show Veronica Mars. No wait, he also played Kyle on Party Down. FINE, just check out his IMDB).
3. You have met him because he is the son-in-law of CYT founders Paul & Sheryl Russell.

Did I forget to mention his 10-episode stint as Candy Andy on Two Broke Girls?

Any way you slice it, to know Ryan Hansen is to love Ryan Hansen. Which makes this next news even more bittersweet: he’s in the just-released Veronica Mars movie AND he’s slated to star in its digital spinoff series on the CW. Oh my gosh oh my gosh.

I’m sure all of us here at CYT would like to think that his involvement with us laid the groundwork for his impressive career. Whether or not that’s true (come on, it must be true), he’s crushing it in Hollywood and we’re just so proud. Check out the below trailer of the new Veronica Mars movie which opened March 14th.
