It’s been ten years since the first episode of Jessie aired on Disney Channel and the witty and rebellious teen stole our hearts. Since then, many of its stars, including Debby Ryan, Peyton List, the late Cameron Boyce, Skai Jackson, and Karan Brar ventured off and elevated their career to another level after the show ended.
They weren’t the only ones who got their head start from the show, though. It may come as no surprise for many as Disney shows are a fertile ground of celeb cameos, but these A-list celebs made their way to Jessie. To sum it up, here are ten celebrity guest stars on Disney’s Jessie, from Noah Centineo to Michelle Obama.
Shadow Hunters and Arrow star Katherine McNamara joined Jessie as Bryn Breitbart, a sassy and snobby mean girl at Walden High School and Emma Ross’ enemy on two episodes from Season 2. Professionally, the 25-year-old star is also known for acting in the dystopian franchise Maze Runner. She’s now gearing up for an upcoming spy thriller Agent Game with Dermot Mulroney and Mel Gibson.
