Character Bio

Det. Kevin Ryan photo
NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan works alongside Esposito as part of Beckett’s investigative team. He began his career working as a former Narcotics detective but jumped at the opportunity to work Homicide.

Ryan is charming, quick on his feet, and has a wealth of obscure knowledge. Always contributing a random fact or some unique piece of insight, he is a focused and invaluable detective.

Spoilers Ahead!!!

He and Esposito regularly tease Beckett, but they are also protective of her. The character was a late addition to the show as the original presentation pilot was only 37 minutes long.

Ryan recently married the love of his life, Jenny O'Malley, in season four. He is extremely loyal both in his personal and professional life. Though he often pokes fun at his co-workers, Ryan has no problem admitting his own shortcomings. He is a dedicated professional, who often enjoys having Castle around, but will always go above and beyond to bring criminals to justice.

In the final episode of season four, Ryan fails to support Beckett and his partner Esposito, which jeopardizes his partnership with the two of them though they reconcile later. In season five he is revealed to have worked undercover in the Irish mob. In season six, Jenny gives birth to their daughter.
