Debby is wearing Cuyana Stainless Steel Bangles. Click inside to read JustJared. This is such a fun and exciting episode. You are going to see lots of cool stunts and hilarious moments. If you could personally give Jessie some advice, what would you tell her?
Be courageous and follow your own path. Tell us about a favorite on-set moment or episode you filmed. I love it when Jessie sings on the show. She got to sing at a little Palooza concert and it was the best moment ever. On this upcoming episode, I insisted on doing my own stunts especially when concerning the snake, and they let me. I discovered later that my stunt double was afraid of snakes and so relieved when she heard that I actually wanted to do the snake scene.
How would you describe your personal style? Classic, wearable, sophisticated with fun and rock and roll elements. Sweatpants outside of the house or leggings as pants. Who is your personal style icon? Any plans on pursuing that more? What is your go-to song right now? Play music, listen to music, write music, hang out with my friends, bake, write screen plays, come up with show ideas, watch old movies, read.
If you could guest star on any other show, which would it be and why? I am a fan of those shows, the comedians are brilliant and the writing and directing is amazing! Have you ever been starstruck and by who? John Travolta and Emma Stone.
I met both of them when I was only 14 or They made an indelible impression on me. Chris Galya — JustJared. Do you think Tony and Jessie are good together? Are you similar or different from Tony? And we can go to a restaurant together!
There was one thing where we got to go into this edible mud. That was pretty fun. It was like cake mix. It was an episode where they were in a salon and get into a fight in a mud bath.
But they made it out cake batter mix, so if it happened to get in your mouth, it was still okay. It was pretty awesome. That took like two hours to get off, but it was so fun. I like doing stuff along those lines. The teacup one was pretty interesting. That one was cool. There was a lot of water involved. They kept it warm for us. We heard you started out modeling.
Tell us about that. Yeah, I modeled for five years. I started out when I was I was offered a three-year contract with Ford Models in the beginning of my career and that brought me all around the world.
I lived in Paris. I modeled in Milan on runways in Alexander McQueen. I was the face of Lacoste. I was doing that for a good moment up until I moved out here.
My model agent in New York had connections out here [in L. I went to L. I ended up getting Jessie two months later. How would describe your personal style? I would say 90s grunge mixed with present day a little bit. I try to filter in every kind of… 80s, 90s, any decade really.
Probably a Hawaiian shirt. I think polos are stupid laughs. But I will wear them in private, actually. Because those things are comfortable. Pajamas, all of the above. Do you watch a lot of television? What are some of your favorite shows? O, New Girl, mostly comedies.
So have you ever had any crazy fan experiences? And I heard this family and a bunch of kids upstairs, and I ended up seeing them one day.
So one day, my girlfriend and I are coming outside and the woman comes up to me and she has three or four kids with her. But nothing too crazy. There was one time I was in a restaurant and there were kids talking about the Disney Channel.
There was a table full of a softball team or something, a bunch of young girls. They spotted me and literally, there were 15 of them who all just started to stare at me in the restaurant. I got up and I was taking pictures. So any news on a third season of Jessie yet?
I know they are going to finish shooting a second season in the next few weeks actually. We have a lot more episodes than a lot of shows on TV. A lot of the Disney shows run three or four seasons, so I feel good about that. Acting-wise, what else do you hope to do in the future? Because I can be pretty insane once you get to know me. But yeah, I grew up doing art and went to school for art.
It would be cool to see myself in a film that has crazy special effects and just to see yourself in that kind of environment, and just the people who work behind the project. I like the art about it. Who are some of your favorite comedians?
When I was like eight, I was a huge fan of Jim Carrey. I can keep going. Adam Sandler , Zach Galifianakis. There are so ones that I appreciate. Just Jared on Facebook.
