Edvin Ryding was born on 4 February 2003 to his parents in Sweden. The actor was raised in Saltsjö-Boo with his three siblings and the actor went to school there. He was not one of those kids who grew up with the desire to be an actor when they grow up. Instead, Edvin watched football on TV and he loved playing the game.
Later the opportunity of movie and TV came to the young actor. While his parents were a little contentious to begin with, they recognized the opportunity acting offered to young Edvin. It all led to hi, standing in front of a large billboard, a few years later, and his father being proud of his son’s name at the top, ahead of some big names from Sweden.
Edvin Ryding’s Big Acting Break was a Coincidence
Edvin Ryding was 5-years-old when the actor got his first exposure to the world of film making. But his journey into the Swedish industry was a coincidence, one that involved a used bed. The actor’s parents’ friend were selling a used bed on Blocket and when the buyer came to see the bed and the deal was finalized, her phone rang.
The buyer was involved in the TV and movie industry and according to Edvin, “It was SVT. They were working on the production of “The Man Under the Stairs” with Jonas Carlsson in the lead role.” The production needed a 5-year-old boy to play the role of son and the Edvin name was floated. Soon, he was on set and 6 years later, the actor’s home was flooded with scripts with Edvin managing a steady work flow.
Edvin Wanted to be a Football Player Growing Up
As we mentioned above, Edvin Ryding did not grow up with the idea of being in the movie and TV industry. Unlike most kid actors, Edvin was attracted to something else as a kid. He loved playing football and played for his hometown team Boo FF, with his preferred position being in the left side of the mid field.
The actor managed school, football and acting all together but his desire was always to be a player. Edvin even said his biggest idol was Cristiano Ronaldo, player for Juventus and Portugal national team. His desire was to ply his trade as a professional player but fate had picked a different route for the actor.
