Ryan Reynolds, born Ryan Rodney Reynolds, was born on 23 October 1976 in Vancouver, where he graduated from Kitsilano Secondary School in 1994.
His acting debut took place during his high school years, in 1991 with the TV series Hillside, teen-drama where he plays the young Billy Simpson, struggling, like his peers, with adolescent problems. Reynolds will play in the series until the final season, which ended in 1993, when he was nominated for the Young Artist Awards for his interpretation of him. Back in his hometown, he enrolls at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, but abandons his studies to continue pursuing his dream in the world of cinema.
Followed by extras in other TV series and participation in several minor films, such as Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1996) – pilot of the homonymous series – where she plays the boy whose protagonist falls in love, and the sentimental comedy Coming Soon (1999). Also in 1999 he joined Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williamsin The Girls of the White House , but he still does not receive a major enough role to highlight it, until he is cast as the protagonist with Jerry O’Connell of Never Say Always (2002).
In the same year he received the lead role in the demented comedy Maial College (2002), in which Van Wilder, a college student who is more studying, is dedicated to organizing parties.It is the latter character who places him in the spotlight and consecrates him as a comic actor, in fact, other hilarious films are proposed, with which Reynolds manages to climb the peak of his career, also working with established stars, such as Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks in Impossible Marriage (2003).
To break the series of comedies played by the Canadian actor in this period comes Blade: Trinity (2004), an action movie in which, in the role of Hannibal Kng, he joins Wesley Snipes and Jessica Biel in the hunt for vampires. Subsequently he continues to experiment with new genres and in 2005 he starred together with Melissa George in the remake Amityville Horror , for which she won a Teen Choice Award; follows the romantic comedy Just Friends (2005) and the thriller Smokin ‘Aces (2006).
It is a golden age for Reynolds, who has now achieved his dream: he is, in fact, an established actor and the main parts that are assigned to him are nothing more than the confirmation of his skill.
He plays three different characters in John August ‘s three-episode film The Nines (2007), and is always at the forefront of several dramatic comedies: Chaos Theory (2007), Certainly, Maybe (2008) and A Secret Between Us(2008). In 2009 he was nominated for a Gotham Award for his supporting role in Adventureland (2009) and in the same year he plays the role of Wade Wilson aka Deadpool in X-Men origins – Wolverine (2009), when since 2005 there was talk of a possible involvement of the actor in a cinecomic about the ironic mercenary.
Reynolds’ luck in recent years seems to be the figure of the superhero, in fact platinum-plated and with a bright red cape is Captain Excellet, an imaginary friend of the writer Richard Dunn in Paper Man (2009); but he does not end there, he also wears the emerald green lantern suit in the 2011 film of the same name, on the set of which he meets his future wife Blake Lively .
While it did not have the success hoped for, Green Lantern allowed Reynolds to win a People’s Choice Award and be one of the few actors to have starred in a Marvel cinecomic and a DC one.
In 2010 he received several nominations for his interpretation of him in Blackmail of Love with Sandra Bullock, including the Teen Choice Award for Best Actor in a Romantic Comedy and the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss with Bullock. In the same year he is in the claustrophobic Buried – Buried (2010), a Hispanic-American film in which only two actors, Reynolds and Ivana Miño appear , and which earned him a Saturn Award nomination.
He returns to the light-hearted comedy of his beginnings with Cambio vita (2011), where he is the victim together with Jason Bateman of a magical exchange of bodies. This is followed by a series of action movies in which he joins Denzel Washington and Jeff Bridges and some thrillers as a protagonist, The Captive – Disappeared (2014) and The Voices (2014).
She plays a supporting role in Simon Curtis ‘ hit Woman in Gold (2015) with Helen Mirren , a drama about Holocaust survivor Maria Altmann, which receives positive reviews from critics and a good box office result.
In 2016, after an endless development hell, the spin-off on Deadpool finally comes out, which, thanks also to the massive promotional campaign, had an excellent critical and financial response; the cinecomic set the record as the first Marvel film to be off-limits to minors and as an r-rated movie to gross a huge amount ($ 132.4 million) in the US in its opening weekend.
Deadpool with its double value as superhero and comedian earned Reynolds the double nomination for the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actor in an Action Movie and in a Comedy (the latter won), as well as the victory of a Saturn Award, a People’s Critics Choice Award and nominations for many other awards, including the Golden Globe. Strengthened by the success achieved, atLife – Don’t Cross the Line (2017), with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson . It is 2018 when he returns to wear the mask of Wade Wilson in Deadpool 2 , a sequel in which the Mercenary Chatty forms the X-Force to fight the cyborg Cable ( Josh Brolin ).
The actor also has a good experience with dubbing, his voice, in fact, has been lent to the character of: Guy, the nomadic boy who allows the tribe of primitive men to discover fire in The Croods (2013); Turbo, the super-fast snail who dreams of winning the Indianapolis 500 race in Turbo (2013). Reynolds’ vocal timbre will also be that of the electric Pikachu in Detective Pikachu (2019), the first live-action, based on the video game of the same name, released by the Pokémon series.
