Ryan Lane Timeline

  • 1987

    Lane was born on November 23, 1987 in Fullerton, California to parents William, who is hard of hearing, and Jill Lane. Lane was born deaf and diagnosed at two weeks old with congenital nerve deafness. He has two older sisters, Kristyn (b. 1983) and Hayley (b. 1986) who are both hearing. His parents divorced when he was eight and he then split his time between living with his father in Ontario, California and his mother in Diamond Bar, California. He attended school in the County School District of Los Angeles and graduated from the California School for the Deaf, Riverside (CSDR) in 2007.

  • 2006

    In September 2006, Lane sustained serious injuries in a dirt bike accident in Pismo Beach, California, which reportedly almost left him paralyzed. While trying to execute a jump, Lane fractured his lower spine and left femur, an injury which required a steel rod and screws to replace the broken section of his spine. His time spent recovering from his injuries, which required him to wear a body brace until January 2007, caused him to miss a significant amount of school, delaying his graduation from CSDR until the fall of 2007. Prior to establishing a career in show business, Lane had expressed an interest in studying to be an auto mechanic at the Universal Technical Institute in Rancho Cucamonga, California. In addition to his interest in motorcycles and mechanics, Lane is proficient in baseball, football, snowboarding, swimming and wrestling. In his free time, he has been involved with the charity Dogs for the Deaf, which trains shelter dogs to be assistance animals to the deaf and hard of hearing.

  • 2007

    In 2007, director David Risotto discovered a photograph of Lane in his football uniform on the wall at CSDR (some conflicting sources reporting it as a photograph in the CSDR yearbook). Risotto had been searching for a young man who was deaf and could play baseball to portray Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame center-fielder William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy in the documentary Dummy Hoy: A Deaf Hero (aka: I See the Crowd Roar) and cast Lane, who he believed had both the perfect "look" and the athletic abilities to portray the role. After altering his Mohawk hairstyle and learning to bat left-handed, Lane spent the spring of 2007 filming on location in Southern California, later re-shooting some key ballpark scenes in Evansville, Indiana in the fall of 2008.

In 2009, he guest-starred on the Fox medical drama House M.D., portraying Seth Miller, a high school wrestler who hears explosions in his head, in the episode "House Divided". In 2010, he guest-starred on the CBS medical drama Miami Medical, portraying Ethan, a patient injured under a collapsed balcony, in the episode "All Fall Down".

Lane described the differences between his own life and his characteru0027s saying, "Travisu0027 parents donu0027t [sign]. My parents do. Travis doesnu0027t have that, so in some ways weu0027re different [...] But Iu0027m embracing this whole [storyline] about his home life."In September 2012, it was reported that Lane was set to star in the feature film In Other Words, portraying an isolated young man who falls in love with a blind dancer.
