Ryan Dorsey: Biography of the husband of Naya Rivera
Ryan Dorsey was born in West Virginia, just outside of the state capital of Charleston on July 19th, 1983. He is 34 years old. During high school, Ryan was an active and excellent basketball and football player. However, he suffered an injury from playing football that left him unable to play any more sports, including his favorite sport of basketball. Around the same time as this happened, a man named Ron Reedy, who is an industry professional from Hollywood, came back to his home state of West Virginia to care for his sick mother. Ron Reedy took over the theatre program at Riverside High School, where Ryan attended school. He talked Ryan into auditioning for a production of Ayn Rand's Night of January 16 and from that moment, Ryan became interested in acting. He enrolled in college at Western Carolina University for his freshman year with plans to major in theatre. He dropped out after only a semester though, and moved back home to West Virginia where he and his friends started making their own films. Ron Reedy gave Ryan Dorsey the confidence in his acting ability that he needed to pursue a career in movies and on TV. He eventually moved to New York City and was accepted into an acting conservatory at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. Ryan Dorsey is currently married to the actress from the TV Show Glee, Naya Rivera. The couple have one child together who was born in September of 2015.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. - #Desiderata - #tbt 📷: @mansourmozafari
