Peyton List first stole my heart when she appeared on Disney Channel‘s Jessie back in 2011. Since then, I‘ve been a devoted fan following her impressive career. From her early acting roles to her current status as a leading lady, Peyton has proven herself to be one of the most talented and charismatic performers of her generation. Allow me to give you an in-depth introduction to the incredible Peyton List!

Her Road to Fame Began Early

Peyton‘s passion for performing started at a very young age. Born in Florida in 1998, she began working as a child model alongside her twin brother Spencer when they were just babies! By age four, Peyton had already appeared in a whopping 400 commercials showcasing her photogenic charm.

Her first major acting role came at age eight when she landed a small part in the Anne Hathaway film 27 Dresses. This kicked off an accelerating acting career for young Peyton. In 2011 at age 13, she scored her big break playing Emma Ross on the Disney Channel hit series Jessie. As one of Disney‘s most popular shows, this role quickly catapulted Peyton to stardom and led to more starring Disney roles.

"I‘ve always known I wanted to perform. Getting cast on Jessie and seeing my name in the opening credits was an absolute dream come true." – Peyton List

Becoming a Disney Channel Star

For any millennial, Disney Channel was likely a big part of their childhood. And for four seasons from 2011 to 2015, Peyton List was the Disney Channel! Starring in Jessie as the stylish and somewhat spoiled oldest Ross child, shedisplayed flawless comedic timing and instant chemistry with her cast. Those years were truly Peyton‘s golden age of innocence.

Some of her best Jessie moments include:

  • Performing original songs like "Face to Face" and "One and the Same"
  • Her epic style and sassy one-liners as Emma Ross
  • Heartfelt storylines as she matured throughout the seasons

Peyton reprised her fan favorite role of Emma for the Jessie spinoff Bunk‘d in 2018. She was the undeniable breakout star of the show and became a role model to girls everywhere.

As she entered her late teens, Peyton began taking on more mature roles to showcase her talents beyond Disney. In 2016, she starred as Raimy Sullivan in the drama series Frequency for The CW network. This role highlighted her dramatic and emotional acting chops.

She also appeared in movies like:

  • Anthem of a Teenage Prophet (2018)
  • The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018)

One of her standout roles was playing the antagonist Tory Nichols in the Netflix smash hit Cobra Kai. Peyton demonstrated her versatility by portraying a complex character fans loved to hate!

Most recently, Peyton achieved leading lady status as the star of Netflix‘s 2022 fantasy epic The Witcher: Blood Origin. At just 24 years old, the future looks extremely bright for Peyton List‘s career in film and television. She has easily made the transition from child star to mature actress.
