Deborah Ann "Debby" Ryan (born May 13, 1993) is an American actress and [[IdolSinger singer]], best known for starring as Bailey Pickett in the DisneyChannel original series ''TheSuiteLifeOnDeck''. The series established Ryan as a TeenIdol and became the most-watched children's show on television since its premiere in October 2008.

In 2010, she starred in the film ''[[SixteenWishes 16 Wishes]]'', which was the most-watched cable program on the day of its premiere on the Disney Channel and one of the most-watched movies on television. In addition, ''16 Wishes'' introduced Ryan to new audiences, such as contemporary adult audiences, since the movie received high viewership in the young adult demographic (18-34).

She now has her on show on Disney Channel called ''{{Jessie}}''. The show follows a girl who moves from Texas to New York to become an nanny for a family of four. In February 2012, she starred in a movie called ''Film/RadioRebel''.

Compare to JennetteMcCurdy (who happens to be one of her closest friends in RealLife).

All subjective tropes go in the [[YMMV/DebbyRyan YMMV tab]].

----
!!This actress shows examples of:
* TheCastShowoff: She likes to sing in almost everything she's done.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: ''Have you been to her Twitter page?''
* CountryMouse: Her two most famous roles are a farm girl from Kansas and a girl from rural Texas. Plus, she's originally from Alabama (and grew up in Texas, too). Not played entirely straight though.
* CoverVersion: Of "We Got The Beat" by The Go-Go's for ''Film/RadioRebel''.
** Most of her best-known songs: the aforementioned "[[http://youtu.be/Q-Pw2ODtI3k We Got The Beat]]", "[[http://youtu.be/w47gzKvVmt0 Deck the Halls]]", "[[http://youtu.be/UJ96rrCW6T8 Hakuna Matata]]", "[[http://youtu.be/y7EahpPP7UM We Are Never Never Ever Getting Back Together]]", "[[http://youtu.be/tnHUvRTgCYA Superstition]]"
* DarkerAndEdgier: Her cover of "Superstition" - up to that point all of her songs have been bubbly pop songs, and even TheCoverChangesTheMeaning rendition of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" was still a SofterAndSlowerCover version of a pop song.
** Arguably ''Jessie''. Both the character and the show itself are a little more "grown up" compared to ''Suite Life On Deck" and Disney Channel fare in general.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: "Hey, Jessie" for ''{{Jessie}}''.
* DyeingForYourArt: For both Bailey and Jessie (she's naturally a paler brunette than Jessie).
** And one time, [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue!]] [[http://www.disneydreaming.com/2012/02/19/debby-ryan-tries-out-blue-hair/]]
** DyeHard: ''Nobody'' seems really sure what Debby's natural hair color is. Probably not even Debby herself.
*** [[https://twitter.com/TheDebbyRyan/status/338926530212286464 She has confirmed]] on {{Twitter}} in May 2013 that she is naturally blonde.
* FanCommunityNicknames: "Deboraliens," apparently [[LampshadeHanging referencing her self-acknowledged]] Cloudcukoolander personality. She also references it on her {{Twitter}} page.
* FanService: As shown above, SheCleansUpNicely (and isn't bad in casual wear, either).
* HiddenDepths: Her roles outside of DisneyChannel.
* IdolSinger: So far, she sang "[[Disney/TheLionKing Hakuna Matata]]" for Disney Mania 7, "A Wish Comes True Every Day" and "Open Eyes" for ''16 Wishes'', and the theme song for her show ''{{Jessie}}''.
** Potentially averted since she says she typically refuses record-signing deals because she wants to remain independent as a vocal artist.
* LargeHam: She tends to be very hammy in her comedic roles.
* MilitaryBrat: This is [[ActorAllusion alluded]] in ''{{Jessie}}''.
* MistakenIdentity: An entertainment news show once mistook her for Music/DemiLovato.
* PlayingAgainstType: Most of her roles outside of Disney Channel have been [[AlphaBitch mean girls]], suspected murderers and drug addicts.
* [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fangirl]]: Though she had acting roles before, she was for the most part a normal teenager and huge ''The Suite Life'' fan before scoring the role of Bailey.
* ShrinkingViolet: Her character in ''Film/RadioRebel'' (incidentally, the Trope name is also the name of the source material novel).
** Apparently, despite having been in television roles since before being a teenager, Debby's still this in RealLife, too.
* SofterAndSlowerCover: "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"
* SpiritualSuccessor: To Creator/AnneHathaway, to some extent.
** To DemiLovato in a non-singing capacity.
