JERI RYAN BIOGRAPHY: MOVIES AND TV SHOWS

Ryan had her first role in the TV series Who’s the Boss? in 1991. In an exclusive chat with uInterview in 2020, Ryan revealed that her theatre training did not necessarily translate to a seamless transition into her career in film. “No one bothered to point out to me that there’s a camera six inches above your head, so you don’t need to amplify your voice, so consequently I was shouting all of my lines,” she said with a laugh.

She appeared in several other TV shows within the same year, including The FlashTop of the HeapNurses and more. In 1997, she got the role of Borg drone Seven of Nine in the Star Trek: Voyager series, which she is best known for. She played the role from 1997 to 2001 and has voiced the character in video games. Ryan reprised her role as Seven of Nine in Star Trek: Picard, an extension to the Star Trek franchise in 2020.

Ryan made her feature film debut in 1998 as Lydia in Men Cry Bullets. In 2000, she followed up with roles in the films The Last ManThe Kid, and Dracula 2000. 

Ryan had a recurring role as Ronnie Cooke in Boston Public from 2001 to 2004. Ryan also played Charlotte Morgan on the show The O.C. in 2005. She played Jessica Devlin on the series Shark from 2006 to 2008, Tara Cole in Leverage from 2009 to 2011, Kate Murphy on Body of Proof from 2011 to 2013, and Veronica Allen in Bosch from 2016 to 2019.

JERI RYAN BIOGRAPHY: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ON ‘STAR TREK: PICARD’

In 2020, Ryan resumed her role as Seven of Nine in the newest addition to the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Picard. Of her reprised role, Ryan said, “It’s very surreal and really cool. I love who she’s become, I love how they’ve written the character, I love how they developed her. I love what she’s been through in the last 20 years and how resilient she’s been to go through it.”

She had nothing but praise for her co-star Patrick Stewart, who plays Jean-Luc Picard. “Patrick is a doll,” she said, calling her co-star a “lovely, lovely man” and a “goofball.”

Her favorite moment on set? Filming the first two episodes with Stewart and director Jonathan Frakes. “Watching Patrick like a giddy little boy when he was on on set with Frakes was so fun,” said Ryan.
