Actor. Photographer. Musician.

Before he was the successful actor, musician and photographer he is today, Ryan Parker was a Grade 12 student just trying to fill a spare.

“I needed the credits to graduate, so I took drama thinking it would be the easiest option,” he says. It wasn’t. But something definitely clicked, so when Ryan’s drama teacher strongly encouraged him to audition for MacEwan University’s Theatre Arts program, he went.

“I wasn’t sure I could make a career doing theatre, but those two years changed me absolutely – I came out of that program a different person. The people I was with, the teachers I had, the experiences I went through — they changed my view of the world.”
