The on-screen character initially rose to notoriety through her YouTube arrangement called Little Loca, and later transitioned to doing superstar spoofs on the video stage.

 

“I woke up and one Little Loca video had like 900 hits and I resembled ‘Gracious, my gosh. There’s kin watching this?’ ” Ryan disclosed to The Hollywood Reporter in 2012. “Also, it simply continued onward and after that I did this Paris Hilton thing and afterward it actually was quite recently developing and developing. Furthermore, I just turned out to be so fixated on every last bit of it.”

Ryan parlayed her impersonations into a pop culture sketch series on VH1 called Stevie TV from 2012-2013, and was later a co-host of Brody Jenner‘s E! series Sex with Brody.

She was most recently the co-host of Mentally Ch(ill), a “podcast about depression,” according to its iTunes description. In an episode released just two days before Ryan’s death, she revealed that her grandfather died Thursday.

“I’m just worried that this is going to send me into a deeper depression,” she explained. During the episode, Ryan and co-host Kristen Carney also discussed suicide.

Carney tweeted on Monday, “RIP @StevieRyan The coolest girl I’ve ever known.”
