Bellus Magazine (BM): How did you get into acting?
Ryan Newman (RN): I actually started begging my parents to act when I was 2 years old. I could barely talk so I would point to the TV and say “I do that!” until they finally caved and let me start with modeling and commercials.
BM: Tell us about your character “Emily Hobbs on the show “See Dad Run?
RN: Emily is the oldest of three kids. She’s super smart and practical but she has a spunky side. She’s very social and not afraid to try new things.
BM: What was it like working with Scott Baio?
RN: I truly love working with Scott and we have a really unique relationship. He is like a father figure to me but at the same time we have a special friendship. We are always picking on each other and giving each other a hard time, but I think there are definitely times where he feels very fatherly towards me.
BM: As an actress what was your most adventurous day on set?
RN: Definitely filming Sharknado and using the prop guns and dealing with all the special effects.
RN: I am currently in Orlando, Florida filming Sharknado 3!
BM: What can we expect from you next?
RN: I am excited about pilot season and also the possibility of films.
RN: If it is truly your dream, never give up and don’t compare yourself to others!
