Peyton Roi List[1] (born April 6, 1998[2]) is an American actress and model. List appeared in various films and television episodes as a young child and modeled for tween magazines and companies. In 2011, she joined the cast of Jessie as Emma Ross, the eldest of four siblings that are being cared for by a young nanny. In 2015, she reprised the role in the spinoff series Bunk'd. She is also recognized for playing Holly Hills in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series, and for the role of Tory in Cobra Kai. She also starred as Ellie O'Brien in the 2016 Disney Channel Original Movie The Swap.

Early life

List was born April 6, 1998.[1] She has two brothers, her twin Spencer,[3] and a younger brother,[4] Phoenix, both of whom are actors.[3]

She attended The Carroll School (P.S. 58) for elementary school, and the New Voices School for Academic and Creative Arts (M.S. 443) for middle school, both in New York City.[5] She attended Oak Park High School in Oak Park, California, where she graduated in 2016.[6]

Acting career

List first began acting with television and film appearances. She first made an uncredited appearance on the soap opera As the World Turns in 2002.[7] In 2004, she appeared on the television show All My Children as Bess, and in the same year made a cameo appearance in the feature film Spider-Man 2, which was uncredited.[8] She continued to appear in guest roles and cameos as well as making another uncredited appearance on the live show Saturday Night Live[citation needed] until 2008, when she had her first major role in the feature film 27 Dresses, starring as the young version of the character Jane Nichols. The film was a commercial success,[9] and served as List’s acting debut.

List began to appear in more feature films, and in 2010 was cast in alongside Robert Pattinson in the film Remember Me, as a girl who bullies Pattinson's character's little sister. The film was a box-office success.[10] In the same year, List had begun her work with Disney, and appeared in the Disney film The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which turned to be a box-office bomb.[11] She also was cast in Lifetime Movie Network's Secrets in the Walls, alongside Jeri Ryan and Kay Panabaker.

List starred in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. She had a major role as Holly Hills, the crush of Greg. The cast, including List, had won a Young Artist Award. From 2011 to 2015, she starred as Emma Ross, the eldest of four children, on the Disney Channel series Jessie alongside Debby Ryan and her Diary of a Wimpy Kid co-star Karan Brar. On February 25, 2015, it was announced that Jessie would end after its fourth season, and that List, along with Brar and Skai Jackson, would reprise their roles in the spinoff series Bunk'd.[12]

List is an active member of the Disney Channel Circle of Stars.[13]

Other ventures

List was a 2011 model for Justice magazine. She has also appeared on the cover of the American Girl's 2009 Back to School issue.

She has appeared in over four hundred advertisements in various formats for various companies.[14][15]


She performed with Ingrid Michaelson at one of Michaelson's concerts.[16] In 2018, List released her first single "Liar Liar".[17]


Peyton List shares the same name with a fellow actress, Peyton List (born 1986).[18][19] The younger List was interviewed by Access Hollywood, saying she uses Peyton R. List to avoid confusion.[18] Union SAG-AFTRA's policy avoids actors with the same name; this instance went unnoticed.[18] They appeared in the same scene — when the older List starred on As the World Turns as Lucy Montgomery.[18][8] Years later, the younger List cited confusion when they stayed at the same hotel — they received daily call sheets and voicemails for each other.[18] IndieWire noted the confusion appeared on the website Wikipedia, where both actresses's articles started out with exactly the same introduction text of: "Peyton List is an American actress and model."[19]

Personal life

As of March 2011, List lived with her family in New York.[3] The family had moved to Los Angeles by the time List was 16.[4]
