Million Dollar Listing New York star Ryan Serhant has always wanted to be an actor. After studying theater at Hamilton College, he moved to New York. He got a role on the soap opera As the World Turns but they quickly killed off his character. Discouraged, he took the advice of a friend and got his real estate license. “You’re not going to be acting all day, every day,” said his friend.
With the success of Million Dollar Listing New York, came the opportunity for Serhant to really act. He has a hilarious role as Hedge Fund Dave in Ben Stiller’s new movie, While We’re Young. Serhant says he has “no intention of leaving real estate.” He told his hometown paper, The Star-Telegram, “My ideal world is to do both, sell real estate and run my business. And where some brokers go to the Hamptons on their down time, I make major motion pictures.” The fourth season of Million Dollar Listing New York premieres April 15 at 10pm on Bravo.
