A Little About Me
Whether it’s on film, TV or stage, Alexandra Ryan is a force of nature. She’s been fortunate enough to work with such acclaimed actors as: Allison Janney, Alan Alda, Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings, Rachel Bilson, Adam Brody, Tom Everett Scott, and Sean Astin and has appeared in multiple television shows, including “2 Broke Girls,” “Gilmore Girls,” “The West Wing,” “The OC,” and “The King of Queens.” In the indie world, she’s worked on such films as Art School Confidential (from the creators of the cult classic, Ghost World), and And They’re Off (from the executive producer of “The King of Queens”). No matter what her role, large or small, she has a way of burrowing her way into the hearts of the viewer.
Recently Ryan starred in the award-winning comedy/horror short, Boy Eats Girl: A Zombie Love Story, a short romantic comedy about two zombies who meet-cute while fighting over a dead woman’s intestines. Created by the writers of the upcoming Mulan, the short has played and continues to play at over a dozen film festivals, winning multiple awards including ‘Best Short Film’ at the LA Comedy Film Festival, ‘Best Rom Com’ at Twin Falls Sandwiches Film Festival and ‘Best Halloween Film’ at the Lady Filmmakers Festival.
Ryan has performed stand up and improv all over Los Angeles, including prestigious venues such as The Comedy Store, The Improv, Upright Citizens Brigade and iO West. Her addiction to making people laugh comes from a desire to help people understand themselves and humanity just a little bit better.
When she’s not breathing life into other people’s words, Ryan loves to create her own content. She wrote, produced and starred in a web series called Second Thoughts (Or Why My Inner Voice is an Asshole). She also co-wrote, produced and starred in two comedy shorts. Ryan resides in Los Angeles and enjoys snuggling with her dog and practicing pole dancing.
