Am writing all the way from Nigeria. I really enjoyed your role as ryan in the OC. You were my favorite character,ur handsome face,punches(lol) and your loving nature...buh when i checked your date of birth and saw your age!!! So you were "25" in the first season of the OC and was in high school??? You really look younger than your age. I mean u actually looked 17! And much older than marissa. Although i wasnt really a fan of her.
