09 Feb Ryan Newman stars on “Zeke & Luther”
When Ryan Newman was only six years old, she started taking acting classes with me. Coaching her on her first feature film ‘Zoom’ allowed her to show that she was not only funny but had sensitivity and depth. There is a scene in the film where Ryan, playing budding super hero Cindy, donning a bunny suit and holding a teddy bear asks Tim Allen who plays the super hero Zoom, if she is a freak for having super strength. It is both funny and heartbreaking.
So when we were coaching on her audition for the new Disney XD comedy ‘Zeke & Luther‘ we worked hard on making sure that she had equal levels dry wit and wise beyond her years depth for the role of Ginger. And after auditions, callbacks and screen tests, it all paid off. She booked the role, shot the pilot and now she is well into the first season of shows. Week after week as we coach on every script the show is getting funnier and funnier and Ginger is getting more and more outrageous. What fun for a young actress to get to act!
