Ryan Gosling Biography
Ryan Gosling is a Canadian actor and musician. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel’s The Mickey Mouse Club (1993–95) and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark? (1995) and Goosebumps (1996).
Ryan Gosling Family
The actor was born on 12 November, 1980 in London, Ontario, his full name Ryan Thomas Gosling, the son of Thomas Ray Gosling, a travelling salesman for a paper mill, and Donna, a secretary.
Gosling’s parents were Mormons, and Gosling has said that the religion influenced every aspect of their lives although he said he “never really could identify with.” Because of his father’s work, they “moved around a lot” and Gosling lived in both Cornwall, Ontario, and Burlington, Ontario. His parents divorced when he was 13, and he and his older sister Mandi lived with their mother.
Ryan Gosling Education
Gosling was educated at Gladstone Public School, Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School and Lester B. Pearson High School. As a child, he watched Dick Tracy and was inspired to become an actor. He was unable to read and was evaluated for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but was not diagnosed with it and, contrary to false reports, never took medication. His mother quit her job and home schooled him for a year which he says gave him “a sense of autonomy”.
Gosling performed in front of audiences from an early age, encouraged by his sister who was a performer. He and his sister sang together at weddings and was involved with a local ballet company. Performing boosted his self-confidence as it was the only thing he received praise for. He dropped out of high school at the age of 17 to focus on his acting career.
Ryan Gosling Acting career
Child actor (1993–1999)
In 1993, at the age of 12, Gosling attended an open audition in Montreal for a revival of Disney Channel’s The Mickey Mouse Club. He was given a two-year contract as a musketeer and moved to Orlando, Florida. He appeared on-screen infrequently because other children were considered more talented. His fellow cast members included Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera. He became particularly close friends with Timberlake and they lived together for six months during the second year of the show. Timberlake’s mother became Gosling’s legal guardian after his mother returned to Canada.
Move to independent film (2000–2003)
Gosling decided to move into “serious acting” at the age of 19. After a supporting role in the football drama ‘Remember the Titans’, Gosling secured a lead role as a young Jewish neo-Nazi in 2001’s The Believer. Director Henry Bean cast Gosling because his Mormon upbringing helped him understand the isolation of Judaism. The film later won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
He then co-starred in the psychological thriller Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock and Michael Pitt in 2002,where Gosling and Pitt portrayed a pair of high school seniors who believe they can commit the perfect murder. Bullock played the detective tasked with investigating the crime.
His second screen appearance of 2002 was in ‘The Slaughter Rule’ with David Morse which explores the relationship between a high school football player and his troubled coach in rural Montana. The film was released in just three US theatres and grossed $13,411.
In 2003, Gosling starred in The United States of Leland as a teenager imprisoned for the murder of a disabled boy. He was drawn to the role because it was unusual to find a character that was “emotionally disconnected for the whole film.” The film grossed $343,847 in the United States and was not released overseas.
