Cody and Bailey are going to make it! That’s what Debby Ryan told us and we believe her 100%.
Check out the rest of JJJ‘s Q&A with the 17-year-old star about the finale episode:
JJJ: What were the most memorable scenes in the episode for you?
Debby Ryan: Probably the goodbye scene. It was not easy when people started hugging goodbye. First of all, we came onto set after filming Bailey and London’s scene, and walked in, and Bailey’s cabin is gone. It’s gone, and in its place is just cement because it’s a soundstage. We did a goodbye scene that was really sweet in a lot of ways, but also really dramatic in a lot of ways. That scene was really hard for all of us. There were very few people who weren’t emotionally touched. We had to actually stop filming once or twice to really take a moment in the middle of the scene, and all of us had to take a breath, dry our tears, and carry on.
JJJ: We know from the previews that Bailey and Cody have both applied to Yale. What do you think their chances are that they’ll attend the same college and do you think they’ll last?
DR: I think no matter what, Bailey and Cody will last. I think that they love each other so much, and they built a foundation on things that they’ve overcome. I think that they’re going to last for 100 years, or until they are both gone, they will still be each other’s true loves.
That’s something that I think fans will know too. But college-wise, if both apply to Yale, but only one of them gets in, I guess we’ll have to see what they’re doing with their lives and if they can make things work. Stayed tuned for that.
JJJ: Who do you think cried the most after the last episode?
DR: Brenda, she’s a crier.
JJJ: Did you take anything from the set?
DR: I did! I kept really memorable outfits from Bailey’s moments. I actually have the outfit when Bailey snuck on the boat as a guy, I have her bridesmaid dress from Maddy’s wedding to the random little prince, and some everyday outfits as well.
