His career started pretty well, by starring in Fifteen (1990) TV series, and then having smaller roles in Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story (1995) and In Cold Blood (1996). However, after those, Ryan Reynolds hit a kind of a dry spell, and his lack of roles made him decide to quit acting. Thankfully, after a coincidental meet up with another Canadian actor, Chris William Martin, he decided to pack up everything, and move to Los Angeles, California with him to seek success.

All the struggle of living in a cheap motel paid off, and in 1997 he landed a role in Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place. Even though the show wasn’t well received, it was later renewed for a second season, and that’s where it all started out. Ryan Reynolds later went on to play roles in comedies and comic-adaptation movies like Green Lantern (2011) and Deadpool (2016). He’s also taken part in many comedies like The Change-Up (2011) but also drama/adventures like Safe House (2012). Take a look at his role of a young CIA agent:

As you can see, Ryan Reynolds isn’t stopping anytime soon and is finding a great balance between family and professional life. He’s already filming a sequel to Deadpool that comes out this year, as well as Detective Pikachu, a movie based on the popular game franchise from Nintendo – Pokemon. For 2020, which seems pretty far at the moment, he has The Croods 2 planned, along with Emma Stone and Nicolas Cage, two other great actors.

Ryan Reynolds Facts

  • Failed his high school drama class, which is pretty funny to hear knowing his success as an actor.
  • Before he became an actor, Ryan Reynolds worked in the grocery store.
  • He’s the youngest of four brothers. None of his brothers are involved in acting, and two of them are policemen.
  • He specified he did not like being a Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) and had a bad working relationship with its director. The movie didn’t achieve great success, which might be one of the reasons.
