The 18-year-old star and producer of the Disney Channel show explained, “I wanted [Jessie] to be cool, and I wanted her to be relatable. There’s this balance between a little intangible, like someone you really want to hang out with all the time but not someone who couldn’t exist in this world. So I think we really nailed that with Jessie.”

“Sometimes she is the only one who laughs at her own jokes. I think she’s funny,” Debby said with a laugh, “That’s something I like about people. I saw it as a quality about my favorite people in the world.”
