He appeared in the film Mystery, Alaska, Ripper, and played Carl Wilson in the Emmy nominated miniseries The Beach Boys: An American Family.  He is currently co-founder of MEDIAPOP Films and continues to appear in TV and Film.

Early life[edit]

Ryan was born April 9, 1980 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Rhonda and Linden Northcott. He graduated from Western Canada High School in 1998 and was cast in Mystery, Alaska during his final year of high school.

Career[edit]

Northcott began his career appearing in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show, which was filmed in Calgary. He followed up with a role in the made-for-tv film Atomic Dog.

Big Break[edit]

He was auditioning for a small, two-line role in Mystery, Alaska with Casting Director Linda Lowy who asked if he would be interested in auditioning for the role of Stevie Weeks, the up and coming hockey player in Mystery. He read for Stevie Weeks and the next day met with Director Jay Roach in Canmore, Alberta, Canada to show his skating skills and another audition. After another couple rounds of auditions for producers, he was cast as Stevie Weeks, one of the principal roles in the film.[1]

Los Angeles[edit]

After Mystery, Alaska, he moved to Los Angeles and was cast in the Fox Family Channel Movie Don’t Look Behind You, Ripper alongside Jurgen Prochnow & A.J. Cook, MVP: Most Valuable Primate, and the role of Carl Wilson in The Beach Boys: An American Family which was nominated for an Outstanding Mini-Series Emmy[2] and Best Casting for TV Mini-Series Artios Award.[3]

Back to Canada[edit]

After 8 years as a working actor in Los Angeles, Northcott moved back to Calgary where he and David Haysom began FUDDYTV, a self-produced sketch comedy YouTube Channel. Their first video, "News Reporter Chuck Storm Accident Blooper", went viral and appeared on Ellen, Maury Povich, CNN, and News Knight with Sir Trevor McDonald[4] among many others.

Northcott’s next success with FUDDYTV came after the group had produced "Car Dance Party Moscow". The creative team at Happiness-Brussels in Belgium saw the video and asked Northcott to produce "Car Dance Party Belgium Aygo for Toyota in Belgium". The video and subsequent campaign went on to win multiple awards at the Cannes Lions,[5] MIXX Awards,[6] and Eurobest Awards.[7]

Northcott returned to the screen with roles in Tom Stone and Wild Roses, both CBC TV series, the Lifetime TV Movie 12 Men of Christmas, and Away & Back, where he worked with The Beach Boys: An American Family Director Jeff Bleckner for a second time.

Recently, Northcott has appeared in several TV series and films including Jann, The Twilight Zone, Let Him Go, Heartland, and Tribal. Northcott plays real-life journalist Julian Sher in the film Marlene and Seth in the film Jasmine Road which both premiered at the Calgary International Film Festival [8].
