Katherine Ryan Says Her Boyfriend Saves Netflix Scripts During Burglary - TNBC UK

Katherine Ryan, the famous Canadian comedian, writer, and actress, has described how her boyfriend defended a trespasser at her home to save a laptop containing the scripts to her new show. The Canadian in an Instagram Story showed police at her London home and wrote: “Cool to be robbed tonight by a masked man in our home.”

She sought help in tracing a ring that was stolen. The 36-year-old actress is known for stand-up and panel shows but has written a Netflix sitcom, The Duchess, about a single mother.

In an interview, she earlier told reporters writing the series “was a challenge because I’m not a screenwriter who’s experienced, I don’t know the rules”.

At the weekend, in an Instagram clip, she pointed out blood on the laptop and told followers,  “This is why I love Bobby K [Kootstra]. He got in a fight and wrestled back my Netflix series, all my scripts.”

Kootstra was the childhood sweetheart with whom Ryan was reportedly united after two decades during a chance meeting while shooting for BBC series Who Do You Think You Are? in her hometown of Sarnia, west of Toronto.

For more than a decade, she has been living in London. She has a young daughter whom she often mentions in her comedy routines. Following the burglary, in another post, Ryan suggested she was finding it hard to sleep.

“That’s fine, I never liked sleeping anyway,” she said. Making some humor, she said she would get a German shepherd after her small dogs were “asleep at the wheel” during the incident. A regular performer on Netflix, Ryan, having filmed stand-up specials in Trouble and Glitter Room and appeared alongside Jimmy Carr in The Fix.
