The Disney starlet, most notable for her performance as Emma Ross on Disney Channel’s Jessie and Bunk’d, has been acting since she was 12-years-old.

“From 12 to 20, you change so so much. I feel like I [have] definitely matured,” said List. “On my hiatuses, I also worked on a lot of cool movies and projects, so I’ve grown outside of there as well.”

With her Disney career coming to a close, The Swap star is eager to venture into new acting territory. “I’m just kind of picking the right projects now, after being done with Disney. Now I’m like ‘what do I want to do? What do I what this to look like as I go forward?’ It is a really exciting time for me.”

Her latest roles in Departures and Anthem show her acting abilities extend past the teenybopper she plays on TV.

When discussing Anthem, a film whose cast includes her twin brother, Spencer, and boyfriend, Cameron Monaghan, List said, “Fans who were younger and watched Jessie when it first came out, I feel like they have kind of grown up with me so I feel [this is] the sort of movie that fits the age everyone is now.”
