Ryan Sharkey is Finn Sharkey's father.
He is seen in two episodes in Waterloo Road, first when Finn attempted to kill himself when they was supposed to move to Los Angeles, and then when Finn give drugs to his bestfriend, Josh Stevenson.
Ryan is not really a good father to Finn and lets his son do anything he wants, and yells at him when he needs his support. Chris Mead got into an altercation with him twice about this.
