Debby Ryan: Graduating 'On Deck' is Not Easy

Debby Ryan: Graduating 'On Deck' is Not Easy

There are only TWO DAYS left until Graduation on Deck — everyone have their tissues? Good.

JustJaredJr.com had a chance to chat with star Debby Ryan about the final episode and what it really meant to her. Check out what the 17-year-old actress had to share with us:

JJJ: What will you miss most about the show?
Debby Ryan: The cast and crew. We really had such a great family there on the show, so I’m definitely going to miss them. But fortunately I may be seeing some of the crew on “Jessie,” which is great.

JJJ: You actually experienced prom and you graduated on the set. Was there any event that you would’ve liked to have seen happen on the show that didn’t?
DR: We had the beauty pageant, which was a little bit like a talent show, and a couple of really dramatic moments happened there so I felt like we hit a lot of the milestones. Seeing Bailey’s home and everything, I don’t think that there is anything I would change about the stories the writers gave us. We have a really great team, and they were always listening to what we really wanted. That went really well.

JJJ: How hard did you take the graduation?
DR: The graduation was not easy. It was really dramatic for everyone and there were tons of people who thought they wouldn’t cry, but then they did. And there were tons of people who thought they were going to be a mess that week who didn’t say a word because they were so dramatic about the whole thing. It was hard, but I feel like what was so cool about it was we were also talking about what we were doing.

We were sitting behind the scenes in the hair and makeup room saying, “I have this movie on the road, I have a new show on Disney Channel, I’m writing and producing this, I’m going to NYU” or whatever it is. So we’re celebrating each other’s next steps before they even happen as well as reminiscing on how much we’ve grown with each other.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the rest of our Q&A with Debby!
