Deborah Ann Ryan (born May 13, 1993) is an American actress and singer, best known for starring in the Disney Channel original series The Suite Life on Deck and Jessie in the late 2000s and early 2010s. The series established Ryan as a Teen Idol, and she was a regular feature on other Disney Channel programs, including the TV films 16 Wishes and Radio Rebel.

In early 2014 she formed a band called The Never Ending. Their debut EP, One, was released on June 24, 2014. Following the end of Jessie and her time as a teen idol, Ryan has continued to act, including starring in the Netflix dark comedy Insatiable, the 2021 film Night Teeth, and the 2023 film Shortcomings.

Compare to Jennette McCurdy, who happens to be one of Ryan's closest friends in Real Life. Not to be confused with contemporary Disney teen idol Demi Lovato. Since 2019, she has been married to Josh Dun, the drummer for Twenty One Pilots.
