Ryan John Cassidy was born February 23, 1966, in Santa Monica, California. He is the youngest of the Cassidy brothers and, as he has been known to point out, the one few people know about or remember. He is often placed into context with brothers David (half-brother), Shaun and Patrick or parents Shirley Jones and the late Jack Cassidy, all of whom have had long, successful careers in film, television, theater and the recording industry. At first Ryan was unswayed by the lure of show business and considered a career in law enforcement. However, after graduating from Beverly Hills High School in 1984, he embarked on an acting career that lasted through the late '80s. During this time, he appeared in the Lionel Ritchie music video "Penny Lover", the NBC sitcom "The Facts of Life" in the sixth season as Kevin Metcalf (a role designed around Ryan himself) and as Jake Hittman in an episode of the short-lived CBS series "Jesse Hawkes". He left show business in the '90s and pursued different avenues, finally settling on work behind the scenes. He is now a successful set designer most recently working on the WB sitcom "Movie Stars", but is seriously considering a return to acting as a full-time profession. While he is and always has been proud to be a member of his famous family, he deserves to be recognized in his own right. This site's purpose, therefore, is one of appreciation for his past and current careers as well as of the man himself. He is and always has been one of the kindest, most modest people in the world while yet, unlike the rest of his family, never having a site, newsletter or club dedicated solely to him. Better late than never. Please enjoy the photos and commentary on this and the following pages. You can e-mail your comments, suggestions and questions to or leave them in the pages of the guestbooks or bulletin board.
This site has Ryan's full support and any questions or comments for him can be directed to the e-mail address below. I will make sure all correspondance is delivered to him. The account is checked on a nearly daily basis to make sure everything reaches him in a timely fashion.
