Debby Ryan is busy. Not only is the actress working on a ton of new projects – like her recently-picked up Netflix series Insatiable and the TV show Daytime Divas – but now she was just announced as part of the cast of an upcoming young adult novel film adaptation that we’re really excited about. According to Deadline, Debby will be appearing in a movie called Every Day, a Jesse Andrews screenplay which is based on popular author David Levithan’s best-selling YA book of the same name. (Yes, he’s the genius writer behind some more of our favorite books-turned-movies, like Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List.)
This story follows “16-year-old Rhiannon [played by Angourie Rice], who falls in love with a spirit named A, a traveling soul who wakes each morning in a different body, living a different life every day,” according to the site’s film description. Debby will play Jolene, “Rhiannon’s wry, edgy, irritable older sister,” a character title that the star is already loving.
It's me, your "wry, edgy, irritable older sister" https://t.co/i5P1BKx7RQ
