Peyton List

Millennial social media darling Peyton List spoke to World Screen about the teenage coming-of-age thriller Light as a Feather, which she calls a “guilty-pleasure show.”


List has amassed a solid roster of acting credits—and Instagram followers (15.5 million!)—at just 21 years old. She is known for playing Emma Ross on the Disney Channel comedy series Jessie and its spin-off Bunk’d, for playing Holly Hills in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series and for the role of Tory in Cobra Kai. In Light as a Feather, developed by AwesomenessTV and sold by Viacom International Studios, List took on the role of Olivia Richmond, one of the four best friends who invite the shy new girl out on Halloween only to set into motion a supernatural fallout: after playing a seemingly innocent game of “Light as a feather, stiff as a board,” the girls start dying off in the exact way it was predicted.
