Stevie Ryan, born June 2 1984, is an American actress who grew up in Victorville, California, moving to Los Angeles in 2005. She is probably most well known for her presence on the World Wide Web via her videos on sites such as YouTube and Live Video, especially the videos featuring her fictional character "Little Loca".

Film

Ryan is credited with two film roles:

* Sell Out (2006) .... Beauty Parlor Girl
* Rhapsody (2006) .... Michelle

Online

Ryan began posting her own self-produced videos on YouTube in 2006, made with a video camera borrowed from her boyfriend.

Many videos on YouTube are video blogs; Ryan, instead of posting her own blog, posted parodies of other bloggers. She also started a fictional blog for a character whose YouTube account name was "littleloca". Her other account names are:

"stevieryan"
"Ooolalaa "
"TheRealParis "Sceney Sceneable""Jamie lynn"In 2006, Ryan was accused by other YouTube users of creating "false" accounts for the purpose of bolstering her ratings on YouTube.

littleloca

Ryan's "littleloca" character was based, according to her own account in various interviews, on Mexican-American girls in her neighborhood that she grew up with, amalgamating them into "Little Loca", an 18 year old Latina attending college.

Apparently, many of the viewers of the "littleloca" blogs did not realize this character was fictional, though all of Ryan's accounts linked to each other, making it evident that all the various characters were the same actor.

It's been said that she was finally "outed" as a white girl playing a Latino (though it was never actually a secret), and was accused at times of presenting a racist portrayal. Ryan insisted that it was a faithful rendition of people she knew.

Crispin Glover has appeared in several "littleloca" blogs, as well as other movie and TV actors, and artists.

tevieryan

Ryan's first channel, "stevieryan", was used mainly for posting more "arty" content, such as videos edited to appear like silent films or "found" home movie footage.

Ooolalaa

The "Ooolalaa " channel was used for posting Ryan's own versions of music videos, with lip-syncing to pop music such as Roxanne by The Police. But it also included blogs of a fictional character "Brigitte", who was apparently a French student living in the U.S.

TheRealParis

The channel "TheRealParis " was started when celebrities, including Paris Hilton, started creating their own promotional accounts on YouTube. Ryan posted parodies about Hilton in response to this trend. Eventually, the account started containing Ryan's numerous new characters, such as "Jamie Lynn" (a parody based on home videos of Britney Spears), a young man who admires Michael Jackson and dances the "moon-walk", and a toddler with a penchant for expletives.

The channel also included other direct parodies of personalities like Amy Winehouse and Oscar De La Hoya.

Faye006

At the start of 2007, Ryan began accusing YouTube of treating her unfairly, and started posting her videos concurrently on her "stevieryan" channel at an alternative service "Live Video".

Another channel at Live Video, "Faye006", lists "stevieryan" as "crew member". The popular "Faye006" videos usually consist of satirical comments on video blogging and related topics presented by a hand-puppet and a voice speaking in falsetto. In one of the videos, Ryan appeared to operate this puppet. This has led to the unconfirmed rumor among some of the viewers that "Faye006" may be yet another channel of Ryan's.

Television

She was one of four hosts of the 2007 CW Network reality series Online Nation, which featured Internet video clips. The show was [http://entertainmentnow.wordpress.com/2007/10/18/online-nation-canceled/ cancelled] after only the 4th episode.

She appeared in the 2003 Hilary Duff music video So Yesterday [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lt6PVVr4B04] .

Kiki feud

On July 2, 2008 Stevie Ryan and another internet famous personality Kiki Kannibal, got into an altercation over stickcam when Kiki Kannibal called her a wetback. Since then Ryan has been making fun of Kiki as the character Sceney Sceneable.

Personal

Stevie Ryan is best friends with another internet star known as Chris Crocker. Chris Crocker does not currently have a place of residence in Los Angeles so during visits he stays with Stevie.

Stevie's cousin Monique plays "Silent Girl" in her Little Loca videos. Monique is also Stevie's roommate.
