British actress, Gabrielle Ryan is set to star as the “posh” Portia in the new Netflix show ‘BONDING’ filmed and set in New York. Produced by Anonymous Content – who also produced ‘The Wife’, and other Netflix hit ‘13 Reasons Why’.
BONDING originally premiered at Cannes last year where it received amazing reviews and it’s set to launch over the next couple of months.
Described as a dark comedy loosely based on the colourful life of Rightor Doyle (Star of Emmy award winning ‘Barry’ on Sky Atlantic). BONDING centres on the relationship between former high-school BFFs, Pete a recently ‘out’ gay man and Tiff, a grad student and secretly New York City’s top dominatrix, who reconnect in an unexpectedly years later.
Gabrielle says: “ I’m super excited to be attached to such a great show!”.
I had an absolute blast working on Bonding. The creator Rightor Doyle is a genius, it’s hilarious!
Gabrielle admits she doesn’t get to spend as much time London and Brighton (where she is from) as she would like “You essentially have to be where the work is, which means moving between London, New York and LA. Filming in New York was something I’d always dreamed about, but I definitely miss London and the music back here.”
Gabrielle Ryan developed her love for drama at the prestigious Brighton College, where she attended on an academic scholarship. She took three jobs, saved hard and went on to fund her own training at New York’s Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, where the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie and Robert De Niro also studied.
Before Strasberg, Gabrielle attended The Identity Drama School here in London under the guidance of owner Femi Oguns (MBE), which boasts the likes of John Boyega and Letitia Wright.
Gabrielle credits Oguns’ original belief in her for taking acting seriously as a career.
“Any creative career is a going to be hard, there is no getting around that. You have to work on your craft be the best you can be and never ever give up. “
