NEWPORT NEWS - Two-year old Ryan Killian is a finalist in GAP's 2010 casting call contest.

Killian was among more than a million children entered in the contest. The Newport News toddler is an animal-lover and enjoys going to local farms and playing with goats.

According to Killian's biography on, he would eat mandarin oranges all day if he could.

Killian's mother says one of the main things the judges were looking at when they selected him is personality.

'He's used to having a camera in his face,' said Amy Killian. 'When I get the camera out, he knows to say cheese. Plus he has a happy-go-lucky personality. He likes to put on a show.'

The Killian's won a $500 GAP gift card and a trip to San Francisco for a photo shoot. The toddler is still talking about the plane ride.

'We're super proud,' said Killian.
