Raised in Los Angeles by his parents, actress Patricia Ruth Olga and screenwriter and novelist Charles O’Neal, Ryan attended University High School. He spent some time in Munich in his teenage days because of his father’s work, where he attended Munich American High School. Ryan briefly trained to become an amateur boxer, but before long Ryan found himself choosing a career in acting, as he landed the role of Rodney Harrington in the television soap opera “Peyton Place”, and soon became famous through this work.

Starting his acting career in 1960 and finding fame as a soap opera star, Ryan continued to involve himself in the field of entertainment as an actor. He was noted for his work on television series such as “The Case Of The Bountiful Beauty” and “Good Sports” among others.

More recently, he is active on television from a recurring role in the series “Bones”, and some notable guest appearances, still adding to his net worth.

Apart from television, Ryan has been active in Hollywood since the beginning of his acting career, being a part of hit movies such as “Love Story”, “Paper Moon”, “Tough Guys Don’t Dance”, “Zero Effect”, “Coming Soon” and many more. During his career he has performed in a total of 33 movies , including recent films “People I Know”, “Knight Of Cups” and “Unity” among others.

He won a David Di Donatello Awards and was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for his leading role in the movie “Love Story”.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Love Story (1970)] I didn't worry a lot about whether I was preparing enough for the part. I'm not into study and research much. I just thought about it as a story about a man and a woman and I made sure I looked right. You know, the right scarf, the right sweater.
2[when asked how he would like to be remembered, 2011] He was a child to children and a man to men.
3I had just put the casket in the hearse and I was watching it drive away when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me. I said to her, 'You have a drink on you? You have a car?' She said, 'Daddy, it's me - Tatum!' I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman, and it's my daughter. It's so sick. [in Vanity Fair, admitting to propositioning a woman (who he was unable to recognize as his own daughter) at Farrah Fawcett's funeral]
4[on Farrah Fawcett's ongoing cancer battle] It's a love story. I just don't know how to play this one. I won't know this world without her. Cancer is an insidious enemy.
5[on Barbra Streisand] The most pretentious woman the cinema has ever known.
6I'm as moody and complex and private as anyone I ever knew.
7The only time I ever had steady employment was in Peyton Place (1964). Once I was in control of my destiny, I found it very difficult.
