Ryan Robbins (born November 26, 1971) is a Canadian television actor.
Born and raised in Victoria, BC, Ryan Robbins knew he wanted to be an actor at a young age. He attended arts oriented schools where he wrote, produced, directed and starred in high-school productions; having his first taste of Shakespeare at the age of twelve. After high school, Ryan began his professional career as a circus performer; traveling to Australia to perform. After coming back to Canada, he went to Asia and in his early twenties, he was producing and directing for a production company in Malaysia. Longing for a new creative outlet and now living in Vancouver, he helped form an experimental band, Hellenkeller. During that time, he was a struggling artist, believing in his art but also homeless; living in a van during the winter months. It all changed for Ryan one night while on stage performing with his band. He was discovered by a local filmmaker who launched his career into the world of film and television.
Robbins is known for his roles as Ladon Radim in Stargate Atlantis, Charlie Connor on Battlestar Galactica, and Henry Foss on Sanctuary. He is the only actor to have played two different characters (not counting different incarnations of Cylon models as different characters) in Battlestar Galactica, having originally starred in the miniseries, with heavy makeup and prosthetics to age him, as the Colonial officer assigned to Armistice Station before the Second Cylon War. He also guest starred in the Smallville third season premiere as Lewis. Robbins also played Diego in the Battlestar Galactica prequel series Caprica. He has also guest starred in the TV series jPod as Alistair Parish and as Wendell on the Canadian series The Guard. In 2011 he played the role of John Grey in the film Apollo 18.
