Choctaw-born and bred actor Ryan Merriman sat down last week with NewsOK video host Angi Bruss to chat about his role in the hot TV series “Pretty Little Liars,” his indie film roles in “Cheesecake Casserole” and “The 5th Quarter” and his charity work in Oklahoma.
Ryan was in town not only to visit family and friends but also to help raise money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation, an affiliate of Children’s Miracle Network. He made a special appearance last Friday at Cuppies and Joes, where the shop was selling cupcakes he created with proceeds going to the foundation, and hosted the foundation’s Roundup Shindig on Saturday night.

It was a big weekend in the OKC metro for the Children’s Miracle Network. Teen music sensation Greyson Chance took a break from his tour with Miranda Cosgrove to play a pair of hometown shows at Edmond Santa Fe High School. The shows were benefits for the Children’s Miracle Network as part of Double Wolf Dare Week, the school’s annual charity campaign.
Greyson’s shows and meet-and-greet raised $40,000. To read more, click here.
