Debby Ryan Shines In Disney Channel Original Movie, 'Radio Rebel'

Debby Ryan

The film tells the story of an ordinary high school junior who has a secret alter ego, Radio Rebel — the most popular radio DJ in Seattle. Simply put, Debby Ryan is spectacular!

Debby Ryan is perhaps best known for playing Jessie in the monster hit Disney Channel comedy series, Jessie, or as Bailey Pickett on the long-running Disney Channel series, The Suite Life on Deck. But things have changed with her turn as Tara Adams in Radio Rebel, a shy homebody high school junior who reinvents herself as the most popular radio DJ in town.

Unfortunately for her character, that is right when all the problems begin. Her popularity results in a handful of twists and turns when her secret alter ego threatens the status of her prom, her friendships and her chance with the love of her life, Gavin, who is played by Adam DiMarco.

“Radio Rebel to me is kind of this voice of empowerment; she is kind of the person within you that is usually overpowered by insecurity, by uncertainty or by trends and fads and wanting to be accepted,” Debby told HollywoodLife.com during an exclusive interview.

“It really just says that what’s within you and what’s kind of different and unique about you is really rad, really cool and that is what makes you so awesome and so beautiful!”

Debby also chatted about her future with her music, her acting and her inspirations — and what she would do if she ever hosted Saturday Night Live. Check out the interview, you won’t disappointed!

Radio Rebel premieres on the Disney Channel Friday, Feb. 17 at 8PM, ET/PT.

I hate her as an actress. I don’t think she is very pretty and think she is horrible actress. These shows and movies would be so much better with anybody else. I think her role on zack and Cody was ok but come on find someone better

Agree with you Kali why are you so mean chrisgy. She is a great actress and singer. And will be around for a while. Chrisgy you really should have watch the show closer and the meaning in it about being yourself and accepting other for who they are, and stop the hate.
