Interview w/ Ramon Reed

Host Julana Dizon sits down with Ramon Reed!

A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, Ramon Reed began acting at the age of five in community plays through his school, church and with Porch Productions. In 2015, his starring role as Donkey in a North Carolina Children’s Theater summer camp production of “Shrek Jr.” sparked a more serious desire and love for acting. In 2017, he decided to give acting a real shot and auditioned for Disney’s “The Lion King” musical. He landed the role as Young Simba and toured with their North American Rafiki Company. He performed in 13 cities for 10 months and appeared in four out of eight shows each week. While on tour, Reed was asked to join the award-winning musical on Broadway, where he performed as Young Simba for three more months before he landed his role on “Just Roll With It.”

Reed stars as Owen Blatt, an accomplished student who thrives on detailed schedules and being highly-organized, in Disney Channel’s “Just Roll With It.” The first-of-its-kind series is a hybrid of a scripted family comedy and an improvisational comedy in which the studio audience members vote on the outcome of certain scenes.

When Reed is not on stage or in front of a camera, he can be found singing, inspiring others, having Nerf wars, playing board games, go-karting, shooting basketball or playing with his baby sister, Skylar. He also loves spending time sharing jokes with his family and friends, whether he is at home or exploring the city.

Reed is a Sickle Cell Anemia warrior and is an advocate for those who live with the disorder. Determined not to let his condition define him, Reed wants to inspire others to continue to pursue their dreams – no matter what life throws their way.

Reed currently resides in Los Angeles with his family.
