Peyton List Doesn't Think She'll Be Directing Again Anytime Soon

Peyton List Doesn't Think She'll Be Directing Again Anytime Soon

Earlier this year, we were so excited to find out that Peyton List would be directing an episode of Bunk’d!

However, now that she’s done it, it’s not something she wants to do again for a while.

Speaking with Schon magazine, Peyton opened up about why and what she’s really looking forward to doing next.

“After doing it, because these are the people I grew up with around on set, I had so much respect for everyone,” she started. “I feel like it is an insane amount of work.”

“Directors know every single point of the script. You just have it in you,” Peyton continues. “You can repeat every single little moment and part. It really is: they are the first people there working on a project and the last in post-production. I feel like just coming now, as an actor, I want to be more prepared for the director. I want to be helpful for them because I just have so much more respect.”

While directing might not be in the foreseeable future for Peyton, writing is.

“Writing is something that I love and that I like to do in my free time, but directing is something I have to wait little bit longer to see if I really want to do,” she says. “…[directing] is something that I would love to do, but I feel like I need to study all the camera work more. I do love it and I have so much respect for directors.”
