Ryan Kennedy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and is the oldest of three brothers. His career aspirations leaned towards investigation and working for the FBI, but he began pursuing acting in 2004 after auditioning for a small role in a locally filmed movie.
A lucrative career followed: Kennedy was awarded Best Supporting Actor at the Oklahoma Trail Dance Film Festival, and won Best Ensemble Cast at the Hollywood First Glance Film Festival for his dark and chilling performance in the gritty and disturbing movie "Chasing The White Dragon."
Kennedy’s most recent work includes a series regular role in the CW’s "Hellcats," a series recurring guest role on SyFy’s "Caprica," a guest spot on ABC’s hit series "V," a recurring portrayal of DC comics’s leader of The Legion Of Superheroes Cosmic Boy on "Smallville," as well as guest star performances on CBS’s "Flashpoint," NBC’s "Psych," SyFy’s "Sanctuary" and the highly anticipated first season of "Stargate: Universe." Kennedy can also be seen in the feature thriller "Hybrid."
