Debby Ryan is a success story of how her parents pushed her into acting and ended up financially successful. Fortunately for her, she was able to keep her earnings, unlike Macaulay Culkin.
After several years or theater and minor film roles, she acted a major part in the Barney & Friends movie from 2007. Soon after, she also had minor roles in Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana, 16 Wishes, and other such programs that turn our children’s’ minds into mush.
Of course, we couldn’t forget her most famous lead role in Jessie, a Disney Channel sitcom.
Much like her acting career, her music career had remained in the domain of children’s’ entertainment. Her 2011 single, Made of Matches, made it as the theme of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour. In collaboration with Chad Hively and Chase Ryan, she produced an underwhelming hip-hop style album.
Since 2016, she has set off into more mature roles for her age. Let’s hope the Illuminati lets her go easy so she doesn’t end up like Miley Cyrus or Amanda Bynes. We think she’s most likely to have a career arc similar to Demi Lovato. They even vaguely resemble each other!
