Wichita’s rising star

Reylynn Caster stars in Netflix hit series, ‘The Big Show Show’

Written by Sara Garrison

Seventeen-year-old Wichita native, Reylynn Caster is living her dream of working as an actor in Hollywood. Reylynn stars as Lola in the new hit Netflix television series, “The Big Show Show.”

Reylynn’s love of acting started at a very early age. As a young child, Reylynn modeled in her free time, but as she got older, wanted to try something new.

“I wanted to be an actor for as long as I can remember. I started modeling when I was really young, but knew I wanted to do something different,” explains Reylynn. “Then I started acting in local theater productions at the Scottish Rite Center and I absolutely fell in love with it.”

At age 12, Reylynn created a self-tape audition video for the Marvel Comics movie, “Logan.” An agency in Los Angeles viewed the tape and later contacted Reylynn to sign her as an actor. The agency then encouraged Reylynn to relocate to L.A. to pursue her acting career.

In 2015, Curt, Teresa, Amanda, Anthony and Reylynn Caster moved from Wichita to L.A.

“My family took an incredible leap of faith for me to pursue my dreams,” says Reylynn. “They have always been so supportive of me. I had a dream and my family helped me chase it.”

Over the years, Reylynn has acted in multiple indie films and television series including the movie, “Wichita,” and as a series regular on the ABC hit television series, “American Housewife.”

In April, Reylynn’s new show, “The Big Show Show,” premiered on Netflix. The new comedy series stars WWE wrestler, Big Show. The storyline of the series surrounds teenage daughter Lola (Reylynn), moving in with her dad, his wife and two other daughters. The storyline focuses on this fun family’s journey of togetherness and Big Show’s adjustment to retirement from the spotlight and the exciting world of wrestling.

“ ‘The Big Show Show’ is about new beginnings and a new chapter in the life of this family,” says Reylynn. “It is a fun, family show that adults and kids can enjoy together.”

“The Big Show Show” is taped in front of a live studio audience bringing Reylynn back to her theatrical roots.

“The crowd brings an energy like no other,” says Reylynn. “When you perform in front of a live audience, you can tell when a joke lands and you can get that instant gratification.”

Reylynn has also formed a special bond with her “The Big Show Show” on-screen family.

“As the youngest of three in my own family, I really enjoy being the older sister with two little sisters on the show. The cast is so incredible, they have become like family to me,” says Reylynn. “Big Show, Paul Wight, is an incredible father figure and a really great person. My on-screen mom, Allison Munn is the best at what she does and is a great mentor to learn from.”

Reylynn encourages anyone interested in acting, to pursue their dreams. She says, “Get out there and go for it. You can’t succeed without trying. It is 100 percent possible as long as you love it and you want to go for it.”

“The Big Show Show” is now available to stream on Netflix. For more information about “The Big Show Show” visit Netflix.com.

“I never expected it to get this far. I can’t believe I am in Hollywood and filming this amazing show on the Paramount lot,” explains Reylynn. “This doesn’t feel like a job. I wake up every day and I am so excited to get to work. This is a dream come true for me.”
