Debby Ryan Surprises Patients at CHOC Children's Hospital

Debby Ryan is no newcomer to Seacrest Studios, having visited CHOC Children's multiple times before. This visit, she went room-to-room via a studio iPad, fielding questions about her career and life. From sharing baking secrets to finding out each others favorite colors, no questions were off limits for patients. 

Patients asked Debby about her time playing the title character for the Disney Channel Show Jessie or the Disney Channel Original Movies 16 Wishes and Radio Rebel. For some of the aspiring actors out there, Debby also shared a little about the behind the scenes of filming stunts when on set for a movie or TV show. “Usually, they’ll put me in a harness or on wires and it’s pretty fun.” She said of her time on set filming stunts for Jessie. “It’s a little bit of camera magic and a lot of practice on my end.”

Debby’s dog Jim also made a surprise visit during the call, happily wagging his tail as another patient showed a picture of her own puppy.

Thank you for bringing some joy to all of us here at CHOC, Debby!
