An Australian actor, Ryan Kwanten was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. He appeared on several TV shows Down Under, including a five year stint on the popular series Home and Away. After graduating from business school at the University of Sydney, he came to Los Angeles for what was supposed to be a brief visit but decided to stay, quickly building a reputation as a leading man with roles in several films and TV shows, including Summerland (2003), before adopting a southern drawl and landing the lead role in HBO's True Blood alongside Academy Award-winner Anna Paquin.Kwanten performs many of his own stunts and has become a go-to for films on both sides of the Pacific, including The Effects of Blunt Force Trauma (2015) with Mickey Rourke, Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2014) and as the title character in the critically acclaimed Griff the Invisible (2010). He also showed his lighthearted side in the rom-com Not Suitable for Children (2012), satire Knights of Badassdom (2013), and on Fox's hit comedy New Girl. Recently, Kwanten joined fellow Aussie Toni Collette in loaning his voice to the iconic Australian children's character Blinky Bill in Blinky Bill the Movie (2015).  See full bio on IMDb »
