Debby Ryan on being touted the next Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez: 'It’s funny but it’s definitely a progression. And I really want to have a long career. No one is ever gonna be the next Miley or the next Selena. I would love to be the next anyone. I love having a creative say in all my projects.
I’d love to be the next Tina Fey or someone like that, people [who] are able to be funny, on top of just being pretty onscreen. I had no idea I could make so many expressions with my face and they’re totally unattractive! And I’m totally okay with it. I can growl or even have cake on my face.
That’s what I love about my job: & I can be silly and make people laugh! I was home-schooled, accelerated in classes and I was the kid who would stay behind writing papers and grading tests for the teacher. The only reason other people talked to me would be to ask, ‘Hey, how did I do in my test?’ And I’d be like,
‘Yeah you got a B. You missed some tough questions; I’ll tutor you if you want.’ I was made fun of for being academically accelerated, being in the chess club, being home-schooled, living in Germany. I was German kid when I got back to America and they were like telling me that I was fat, nerdy and that I didn’t belong there.. It was really hard to ignore those bullies. On my first week,
I would get shoved and pushed, all my books on the floor while I was in the hall way at school.. When I started pretending I had a secret and acting like I owned the place, that was when I realized they don’t have any power over me. People will call you everything and with Hollywood, all these things are magnified. It’s important to being able to stand up for yourself.'

..it first hit TV screens Stateside. Debby: 'I believe that people start to get into trouble when they start to believe their own hype. The easiest way to not believe your own hype is to not know what people are saying about you. It's definitely an honor because those are some very hard-working girls, and they've definitely..
blazed some trails.' Debby revealed that she would like to emulate the career of Shia LeBeouf: 'It's the amazing projects, the range. Being this ridiculous goofy character on Even Stevens then he did True Confessions where he represented autism. Just because someone does really cheesy comedy, it doesn't..
..mean that's all they can do. & He avoided growing up too quickly. I've turned down some roles that could have been really big, because I didn't feel I was ready for them and I didn't feel my fans were ready for them. It's hard to justify turning work down but there's something to be said for going at your own pace.'
