11-Year-Old Boy Ryan Hammond Believes He is A Hollywood Star Reincarnate
In 2015, the little boy claimed to be the reincarnation of a guy who died 40 years before he was born, when he was just 11 years old. Based on the sun he had clear memories of life in Hollywood in the 1940s and even provided detailed information about how he passed away, saying he remembers his heart “exploding” before moving into the light.
His unbelievable claims evidently shocked his parents, and the family appeared on daytime television multiple times and soon made it to the national press in the US. Even though reincarnation has never been proven by science, stories of the afterlife are thoroughly investigated.
The boy declared that he was once the former movie extra and a powerful Hollywood agent, Marty Martyn. The well-known actor formerly had a good life in New York City with many famous friends and got married four times in his lifetime.
According to a published post by Mirror, he had a brain hemorrhage and passed away in 1964 at 61. Although, Ryan began to recall the details of his past life as Marty when he was just 3 years old.
Boy Believes He Is a Hollywood Star Reincarnate
The child, who was born in 2004 informed his parents that he was a county deputy clerk and a police officer and his heart exploded while he was in Hollywood. He also claimed that he frequently woke up in the middle of the night holding his chest or yelling “action” in his dreams.
Moreover, Ryan begged his mother to drive him to Hollywood so he could visit his “other family” and claimed to be the owner of a Rolls Royce. He even explained to his mother one evening that to enter the afterlife, you must move toward the light.
A documentary team that had heard about Ryan arranged a meeting between the young man and Marty’s daughter. When the two finally met, Ryan couldn’t understand why the woman was no longer a girl and they went on a tour of several locations in Los Angeles that were connected to the former movie star.
Marty’s daughter supported some of the kid’s statements while they were traveling. Dr. Jim Tucker, a child psychiatrist, had faith in Ryan and his peculiar memories. The psychiatrist studied young children who retain private memories just like 11- year old Ryan.
The cases I have studied don’t match a typical explanation of how we see the world, Dr. Tucker said, adding that “the world just doesn’t work as we think or assume it does.” Though Marty’s recollection of Ryan’s life gradually faded, the two still had a lot in common on the inside, including a love of movies and New York City.
