Under the name Jay Bunyan, he appeared as "Glen" in the "Scallywag Pirates" (2000) and had a minor role in Xena: Warrior Princess. He is known for his portrayal of Jack Scully in the Australian soap opera Neighbours from late 2002 until January 2005.

When auditioning for roles in Los Angeles, it was suggested that Ryan change his name. It was felt that "Bunyan" sounded too similar to bunion.[citation needed] From 2007 to 2009, Ryan played Seaman William "Billy" Webb aka Spider in the popular Australian drama, Sea Patrol.

From a theatre background Ryan has shared the stage with the likes of John Cleese and toured internationally with The Packer, an acclaimed solo show written by NZ/Niuean playwright Dianna Fuemana.

From 2009 to 2012, Ryan played Kevin in the New Zealand comedy/drama series Go Girls.[1] In 2011, he joined the cast of the Australian comedy/drama series Offspring.[2] Also in 2011, Ryan guest starred on the American science fiction series Terra Nova, playing a murderer. For this role, Ryan utilised an American accent.

In 2012, Ryan was cast as the male lead in the CW's Beauty & the Beast pilot.[3] The CW officially announced the series at the May 2012 Up Fronts in New York.[4]
