Hip-hop dancer and actor Nathaniel James Potvin is from the United States. For his role as Ryan Walker in the Disney XD and Disney Channel program “Mech-X4”, he is most recognized. While he had been dancing since he was a little child, he didn’t begin acting until he was 11 years old and was somewhat coerced into taking a theater course. Afterward, he enrolled in an acting course at the same studio where he had previously taken dancing lessons, and this is how his current talent management discovered him. In the independent short film “Palms,” in which he starred in 2012, he made his acting debut as Solomon Dorsey. Following that, Potvin had a number of cameos in television programs like “The Middle,” “The Haunted Hathaways,” and “Love That Girl!” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” and “Girl Meets World.” He was hired to play Ryan Walker, a technopath who commands the titular mech in the 2016 film “Mech-X4”
