Talia Ryder stars as 'Skylar'
Talia Ryder is no stranger to the screen or to the stage, and is positioned to become one of young Hollywood’s leading females in 2020.
Set to appear in Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” musical remake, Talia will join the Jets chorus, alongside other Broadway regulars and familiar names that have graced the big screen. Before joining Spielberg’s cast for one of the most anticipated films of 2020, Talia appeared on Broadway at the age of 12 playing the role of Hortensia in Matilda. She played alongside her younger sister Mimi Ryder for two years, making them the first set of sisters to be in the same Broadway production at the same.
Talia also produced the Mia Michaels PSA on gun violence at age 15, using dance as a way to tackle social justice causes. Talia developed the concept in order to convey the fear kids live with every day going to school, hoping to spark nationwide conversation. Talia currently resides in New York City with her other working siblings Mimi and Tre Ryder.
