The role he's most known for is Logan in the award winning film Krisha, directed by Trey Edward Shults. Krisha took home the Grand Jury Award for best narrative, as well as an audience award and best ensemble cast at SXSW in Austin, TX in 2015.

Bryan Casserly was born in Houston Texas on August 24th 1987 to Pete and Renee Casserly. He got his first taste of acting at the age of 8 when his mother signed him up to be an extra on the made for television movie, A Woman of Independent Means, starring Sally Fields and Ron Silver. In his younger years Bryan was heavily involved in sports, excelling in soccer and basketball. After graduating from Klein High School in 2006, he worked a series of odd jobs not yet knowing what his passion was. In 2012 he moved to Sacramento where his parents had moved to a few years before. Upon reading a book, The Technique of Acting by Stella Adler, he made the decision to move to San Francisco to study acting at the Academy of Art.
"I love everything about films. I don't just watch movies anymore, I study them. It's so refreshing finally realizing what my passion is. Acting has helped me in so many ways."
