Seen here in the first images released of her in the role, Ryan will play Jamie Sommers, a tennis pro who suffers a near-fatal skydiving accident before her body is transformed with £25million worth of bionic wizardry.The actress best known for her role as Zoe Slater in EastEnders beat off stiff competition from Hollywood actresses to land the role.
US TV bosses are so pleased with the pilot, they have commissioned a series which will be shown later this year.
In these new shots from the pilot of the show, Ryan can be seen waking up with her new legs after the accident that put her in hospital. She also receives a bionic eye and a bionic arm. Producers say the pilot show for US network NBC will be a "re-imagination" of the original, a spin-off from cult hit The Six Million Dollar Man, which ran from 1976 to 1978 and starred Lindsay Wagner.
The 23-year-old actress told website Access Hollywood : "I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie, so I kind of enjoyed it all." "I know, the title 'Bionic Woman' - everybody has these iconic images, but I think with this series, what they want to do is make it very real...So Jamie Sommers is the girl next door, and she has had sort of a tragic younger life."
The series promises plenty of fighting and high-octane action for fans of the original. In stills from the show Ryan can be seen leaping from tall buildings, and engaging in martial arts style fighting in the driving rain.
The show promises high-octane action and a realistic portrayal of a young woman whose life will never be quite the same after suffering serious injury.
