On Saturday, actress and YouTube star Stevie Ryan died at the age of 33 as a result of suicide by hanging.
While there’s seemingly never been more social media stars, Ryan was one of the original YouTube breakouts. In 2006, she debuted her first character, a Latina named “Little Loca.” As she continued creating “Little Loca” videos, Ryan expanded her content to include a sexually adventurous teenager, Katrina, and celebrity impressions such as Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber.
The actress’ online popularity led to Ryan getting her own show on VH1. On Stevie TV, which debuted in 2012 and lasted two seasons before being canceled, Ryan continued her popular characters and impressions, while adding much more.
