I used to say to [Blake], "I would take a bullet for you.

Martin found Ryan rather despondent and told him to pack everything: they were going to head to Los Angeles, California. On the first night of their stay, Reynolds' jeep was rolled downhill and stripped.
Between 1991-93, Ryan appeared in Fifteen (1990), a Nickleodeon series taped in Florida with many other Canadian actors.
After the series ended, he returned to Vancouver where he played in a series of forgettable television movies.
He did small roles in Glenn Close's Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story (1995) and CBS's update of In Cold Blood (1996).
However, his run of luck had led him to decide to quit acting.
