CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Though the Disney Channel comedy "Jessie" takes place in New York, it's filmed in Los Angeles. That's where 15-year-old Peyton List, who plays Emma Ross on the show, was at on an early morning this week, but not for long. She was headed to the Big Apple and looking forward to it.
"I'm from New York originally; I lived in Brooklyn," she said en route to the airport, where she would head East, first to Gatlinburg, Tenn., for a meet-and-greet, then to New York to visit her best friend and enjoy a short stay and then here, for a meet-and-greet at Charleston Town Center beginning at noon today.
List has time to visit friends and fans now because "Jessie" is on hiatus. On July 29, she and her co-stars will head back to work for season three of the comedy about the titular Jessie (Debby Ryan), a nanny to a celebrity couple's four children -- Emma, Luke (Cameron Boyce), Ravi (Karan Brar) and Zuri (Skai Jackson).
List said she doesn't know what might happen this season.
"They didn't tell us anything about season three," she said. "I'm waiting to get the first script.
"I hope Emma gets to do more with fashion," she added. "She did a lot with Kitty Couture, her fashion blog, in season two. I hope she gets to do more. It was really fun."
"I'm very girly. I like to dress up," she said.
As for her style?
"It just depends on the day: one day could be girly, one day sporty. I don't really have a set style."
