Get ready to see a whole new side of Debby Ryan.

Debby has been tweeting some cryptic messages about working on a new role. She wrote on Tuesday, "herein wraps Day 1 of my week in a different league. (; This is a new vibe for me, & it couldn't be a greater set to learn on." We now know what that role is thanks to E! Online.

Debby will be taking on quite a different role for a guest spot on ABC's "Private Practice" and she will definitely be getting into some trouble. She will be playing Hailey, an 18-year-old girl whom Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) meets while in rehab.

So how's it going on set? Debby just tweeted to us, "This last week has been mad intense. jazzed for everyone to see it."

E! made an interesting observation. Demi Lovato also played a troubled character named Hailey when she appeared on "Grey's Anatomy." We guess the creator of both shows, Shonda Rhimes, really likes that name.

Debby will appear during the two-hour "Private Practice" event on Nov. 17. For a lighter side of Debby, find out what she told us it takes to be a good nanny when we visited her on the set of her show "Jessie." Also go behind-the-scenes of her photoshoot for the song "We Ended Right."
