CHANEL RYAN: THE PLASTIK PHOTO SHOOT

Named one of the “sexiest women on the planet” by publications on four continents, Chanel Ryan’s face and body have graced magazines across the globe, including Maxim, FHM and Playboy. What makes her a standout though, is that she has over the past decade managed to also successfully navigate the movie industry too. Not bad for an American actress and model of German and Irish decent, discovered on the beach in her early teens.  

Although she initially spent the majority of her early career traveling to different exotic locations for modeling work, her acting career has been non-stop ever since her first movie appearance in the 1994 independent film “Waiting for the Rocket.” Legendary director John Frankenheimer offered her the part on the spot when she auditioned for the 1997 film “George Wallace,” starring veteran actors Gary Sinise and Mare Winningham. By 1998, she landed the role of one of the “Felon Cheerleaders” in the Universal film BASEketball, from the creators of South Park. In 2002, Chanel’s improv training with the Groundlings and ACME comedy theater troupe’s in L.A. helped her garner a guest-starring role opposite Bill Murray in the pilot “The Sweet Spot.” The role of iconic entertainer Andy William’s girlfriend and co-host on “The Andy William Easter Special” for the BBC soon followed.

To date, Chanel has appeared in more than 30 national commercials for well-known companies ranging from Saturn and Volkswagen to Pepsi and Coca-Cola. You have probably seen her in campaigns for Anheuser-Busch, Harley Davidson swimwear, Harrah’s Casinos and Miller Beer along with fashion shows for Fredrick’s of Hollywood. In 2004, Chanel created her “CHANEL” Swimsuit Calendar; garnishing awards year after year and becoming a seasoned producer of photography and editorial layouts. Her shoots appear regularly on magazine covers and editorial spreads across the globe, in publications such as FHM, DT, Nuts, Men’s Edge, People and Ralph.  An avid animal lover, activist and “rescuer” (she shares her home with “adoptees,” a cat named Ruby Tuesday and a border collie named Lucky), she donates a portion of the money earned from her calendars each year to animal charities.

Her recent acting roles include Jonas Akerlund’s “Small Apartments” with James Caan and Billy Crystal; “Dorothy & The Witches of Oz,” starring Sean Astin, Christopher Lloyd and Lance Henrickson; “Skum Rocks” with Alice Cooper and “Bad Kids Go to Hell” with Judd Nelson and Ben Browder, based on the best-selling comic book.

She appears as “Fantazia” in the cult classic follow-up “Hobgoblins 2” from director Rick Sloan and is next featured in the soon-to-be-released horror film, “Alice D,” where she plays genre legend Kane Hodder’s evil sidekick “Isabel” and Creature Feature “Black Lagoon,” alongside scream queen Devanny Pinn.

Always striving for more from her career, the progression to producer has been natural.  Her work as an actress on back-to- back independent features and her years of modeling has served as a hands-on film school.

She is currently in pre-production on her feature film producing debut:  “Crimson Saints,” where she brings her extensive experience, knowledge of public relations/marketing/branding (and her vast rolodex) to the project.
