Ryan Carnes was born and raised in Pitsfield, Illinois, a small, rural community of 4,300. After dedicating the better part of his formative years to sports, music, and academia, Ryan finally found the thespian within. With the encouragement of his current manager Jon Simmons, he made the giant leap to Los Angeles.
In 2003, Ryan did a national campaign for Nintendo, both in print and commercials. Since then, Ryan has dedicated himself to studying his craft and pursuing his dream to be a working actor.
Ryan's break came just last year (2004), when he landed the recurring role of Lucas on General Hospital.
Though he’s straight, Ryan is comfortable playing gay roles. His first gay role, Ryan did full-frontal nudity in the 2004 indie gay comedy "Eating Out" directed by Allan Brocka which is garnering good reviews. And now, he’s screwing Bree Van de Kamp’s son (Shawn Pyfrom) on ABC's Desperate Housewives.
An accomplished drummer for 15 years, Ryan also writes lyrics and is currently collaborating with several other musicians on their first project.
