Introducing…The Next Selenita?

| Filed under: TV NewsDisney


She's got a good start to be!

Some of you kiddies out there might know Debby Ryan from her role on Suite Life on Deck. Well, Disney likes to keep things in the family so rather than going out to find the next Selena Gomez to fill the void when Wizards of Waverly Place comes to an end, they are promoting from within!

Debby will be starring in the new Disney Channel original series, Jessie, which is previewing today at the Disney upfronts. The show is about a young Texan teen who moves to New York and winds up becoming an au pair for a wealthy family with four kids.

Gee willikers, doesn't that sound swell?!

Sure hope you can sing, sweetie, because this is undoubtedly just your first step through the House of Mouse star machine!

    She is PERFECT! True Disney material and a talented actress. I wish her all the best!!

    She actually can sing. She's already had two songs on Disney, and they're both really good.

    I really like her. She's real. She got her start through auditioning as a normal person. And she's not a stick.

    Why didn't Disney promote Alyson Stoner as much as the other girls? Selena is good, but the rest… Eh. My younger cousin met her and she said she is extremely nice! And she can definitely dance too … what happened Disney?

    It looks like Selena and Demi had a baby.

    Aww, she's so cute. I've always liked her. She seems genuine:)

    She looks like a cross between Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato LOL!

    At first I really THOUGHT it was Demi!

    This pic doesn't make her look real. She looks like a porcilin doll from Marie Osmonds collection. She also looks like on of the Breck girls pictures from years ago if anyone remembers or knows what I'm even talking about.

    She definitly looks like a cross between Selena and Demi. I was thinking she was related to one of them or something…

    "Gee willikers….swell…..?" Half of the people in Texas don't even have a southern dialect. Do you think we ride our horses to school and move hay with our Chevy trucks….? Dick.

    "first step through the house of mouse star machine ..?" — she already is a principle character on one of disney's most popular shows, was the leading role in a disney channel movie, and released 2 songs under disney's label .. i think she's a bit past the first step.. a little research would be nice on your part ..

    I've seen her acting and she can act. And she already had sing some songs for Disney.

  15. 15

    Scientists clearly cross bred Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato and this is the result. That resemblance is scary!

  16. 16

    Aww I love her.

    yea, she's funny on the show - the only one actually. well, brenda strong too

  18. Laura says – reply to this


    Although brenda strong won't get her own show because she's Asian. Too bad, because she's talented, its not easy to play dumb so well.

  19. 19

    they all look alike

  20. 20

    I think she's adorable and talented. I seen her in 16 wishes and she sings for a song for the movie also. although i love to see what selena does in the future. i think she's a great choice for the next generation.

    Where does Disney get these girls who all look the same? Mattel? No wonder average young girls have complexes. Sell, sell, sell. Cookie cutter protagonists.

    upper half of the face is selena lower half is demi

    we dont need another one of these

    Kudos to this Texas chick! Though she can act, sing, and dance, I see her really focusing on her acting future more than the other two. She's very bright and doesn't seem to have become jaded by her H-town or Mouse House experience. Keep an eye on this one, she should go far. Plus she is very grounded and close to her family, so I doubt we'll be reading negative things about her in the tabloids. Definitely a breath of fresh air!
