Welcome back to the Celebuzz Meet & Greet, where we talk with rising actors, musicians and entertainers before they hit it big. Watch out for these future A-listers!

Peyton List may look familiar if you caught movies like, 27 Dresses, Remember Me, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, but this young starlet is about to take television by storm. The 13-year-old actress is now one of the stars of Disney’s much anticipated series, Jessie, which premiered on Friday night on the Disney Channel.

Celebuzz recently caught up with Peyton on the set of Jessie, and we chatted about her new role, working with Debby Ryan, and which Twilight character she would love to see make a guest appearance on the new show. Check out the interview to find out who she chose!

The set is amazing!
It is! We just got a subway car set and my favorite has to be the living room because I love all of our faces on the wall.

Tell me about your character, Emma.
My character Emma is the only biological child in the family. She’s very bubbly and very positive. She’s definitely a fashionista. She loves mixing together different patterns and colors – kind of like me. We definitely collaborated on Emma’s wardrobe.

Who do you look to for fashion tips and style?
I have my own style. I go to boutiques and vintage stores and mix stuff with bright colors.

What are Emma’s feelings towards her brothers and sisters every time a new sibling comes in?
She’s pretty welcoming. She really just wants her parents’ attention. They’re not around much because they have such busy schedules, but she’s welcoming to her siblings. They definitely have their moments where they’re fighting, but I think they’re really good friends. I have twin brothers and a younger brother in real life. I feel like Luke [Cameron Boyce] and Emma are like one of my brothers and me. With Jessie [Debby Ryan], Emma is definitely owning up to Jessie. She doesn’t know what to expect because they have a new nanny all the time, so she’s trying to see what jessie is like. She’s trying to get to know her.

What’s it like to work with Debby Ryan who can now be considered a Disney veteran?
Debby’s my role model. She’s like a big sister. We do a lot of stuff together. She took us to Disneyland and we got to go to the front of the line and ride all the rides. She also just got us a bunny named Casanova. Whenever we do good in school we get to take him home for a day or a weekend.

A lot of Disney kids love to branch out into things like singing or fashion designing. Is that something you’re interested in?
I love to sing and dance. I’ve been dancing since I was 4. I would love to try both of them.

Who would you like to see make a guest appearance on Jessie?
We all definitely want to see Taylor Lautner come in!

Make sure to catch Peyton, as well as Debby Ryan, on Jessie on Friday nights at 9 PM on the Disney Channel.
