Early life[edit]

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]

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.[7][8]


List appeared alongside Robert Pattinson in the film Remember Me as a girl who bullies Pattinson's character's little sister. In 2010, List appeared in the Disney film The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and 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. 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.[9]

List is an active member of the Disney Channel Circle of Stars.[10]


She performed with Ingrid Michaelson at one of Michaelson's concerts.[11] In 2018, List released her first single "Liar Liar".[12]


Peyton List shares the same name with a fellow actress, Peyton List (born 1986).[13][14] The younger List was interviewed by Access Hollywood, saying she uses Peyton R. List to avoid confusion.[13] Union SAG-AFTRA's policy avoids actors with the same name; this instance went unnoticed.[13] They appeared in the same scene — when the older List starred on As the World Turns as Lucy Montgomery.[13][15] Years later, the younger List cited confusion when they stayed at the same hotel — they received daily call sheets and voicemails for each other.[13] 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."[14]

Personal life[edit]

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]
