The Disney Channel announced that actress Debby Ryan's character Jessie on her hit television show "Jessie" will be getting married to her new, older boyfriend Brooks played by Pierson Fode. The decision to marry her character has sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry as many are wondering what direction the series will take and whether this is a way for the show to move the series to a more adult series or even potentially end the series.
Debby Ryan has over the course of the series grown into a very talented young actress and she is now looking less like a young girl and more like a young woman. As such entertainment insiders are speculating that the studio executives realize that she might be ready to take on more adult roles under the ABC banner and having her go off on a honeymoon and come back to a new life in a new city in her own young adult show might be a good way to prevent the show from becoming 'stale'.
At the recent MTV movie awards she wore a classy and sophisticated black form-fitting off the shoulder Rachel Zoe gown with a seksi cutout and looked like an attractive young woman. Television and film directors and producers have been noting over the past year how she has become more astute and skilled in displaying her acting range and she is dominating the scenes in a very professional manner.
The marrying of Debby Ryan's character is a great way for Disney to transition her 'from child actress to mature young woman and potentially even make the move from being the feature actress on a television series to leading lady in a movie.
No one knows what the future holds for 'Jessie' but this television marriage will have the impact of a real marriage in that it will impact the career of Debbie Ryan and her character and will be the first of many changes for this talented actress.
