Debby Ryan has had her ups and downs about what she believes in — but she’s made up her mind now.
The 16-year-old actress stars as Kimberly Walker in the upcoming What If... and recently sat down with Susie Online to chat about her faith.
Debby shared about starting her own Bible study for kids in the industry, “It’s literally a bunch of kids in the industry — kids with hearts after God and kids who want to make a positive difference. We all have the same common drive that runs through us, and we want to share it. I don’t find it a religion. I feel like religion is a word that’s synonymous with rules. For me, it’s all about a relationship I have with God. I’m accountable to Him. People can judge it all they want to, but it’s not going to change my mind.”
What If… director Dallas Jenkins told the online mag about her performance in the upcoming movie. He praised, “I kept hearing the Suite Life director telling the actors to ‘go bigger,’ and I wanted to talk to Debby to make sure she could shift from that TV mode into movie mode. Even in scenes where she had to cry or laugh, she didnâ€™t overdo it or push it. Thatâ€™s very rare in a young actor. After her first scene, I knew I was going to love her performance.”
