The young Debby Ryan stopped by TV Guide to do an interview about her new series called Jessie on the Disney Channel. Ryan plays the title character, who moves to New York following her graduation. Desperately in need of work, she takes on the job of nanny for a family with four kids. Since this is Disney, any clashes of personality will be worked out in due time and they’ll all turn in to one big happy family.
But until it gets to that happy place she’ll be flying blind pretending to be a nanny. “Ultimately, at the end of the day, she loves the kids and they love her,” Ryan tells TV Guide. “Her saving grace is the fact that she’s resourceful and she’s bright and while she’s very different than anyone they’ve ever met before, she very much is relatable to them.”
Ryan doesn’t plan to do this forever. During the interview she talks about wanting to do feature films, mentioning she tried to do a drama role but found she was too much of a goof ball. Isn’t that a shame? You’re too fun to be a serious actress. Nuts. She also wants to be an action movie star like Angelina Jolie. Maybe she can be the next Lara Croft? I’d go see that. According to Ryan she’s actually very intense at actiony-type things. I’ll just take her word it. Jessie premieres this Friday.
