    • Ryan: (On whether Neighbours will survive the future) I don't see why not. I really don't see why not. It's going to be changing, it's going to be going back to it's heartland. I'll stay there for a while. I'll stay there as long as they're happy to have me really. You know or if I get sick of it, either one, but that hasn't happened yet. Hopefully it won't happen either!

    • Ryan: (On how he got into acting) Umm, I've been acting since I was eight doing musicals and comedies. There was a musical company that came to our school, they wanted to use it as a rehearsal base doing Oliver and they needed kids so asked if we wanted to audition, so that's what I did, it was great fun.

    • Ryan: (his fondest Christmas memory) Having water fights on our friends' farm, and our parents' daggy dancing to ABBA all night long.

    • Ryan: (on the best Christmas present he's ever received) What every boy's favourite present is - their first BMX. I was jumping off gutters pretending to be a BMX Bandit.

    • Ryan: (on filming the 2006 cliff-hanger on "Neighbours which saw him being shot) These are definitely some of the most dramatic scenes I've ever done on the show. I had to try and imagine just how intimidating it would feel to be staring down a gun. I really don't know if the end result is how I actually would react. I think I'd be a gibbering mess, really!
