Sabrina gifted a ‘best friend necklace’ to her idol and both of them shared their favorite popcorn.
Sabrina’s mom thanked ‘Make-A-Wish’ team for making this possible and even said that Peyton is such a down-to-earth person and very hard working. She also added saying that Peyton made sure that Sabrina had a great welcome and made her feel so special. This one deed of Peyton shows us the kind of a person she is.
Peyton often gets mistaken for the Hollywood actress of the same name. To avoid confusion Peyton used to credit herself as Peyton Roi List or Peyton R List. Consider it coincidence, both of the Peytons have appeared on the television soap ‘As the World Turns’ together. The younger Peyton once quoted in her interviews “We stayed at the same hotel actually at one point we got each other’s call sheets and I got voicemails for her and she got the same thing from me”.
Behind The Curtains
Born in Florida, Peyton was actually raised in California, along with her brother. List has two brothers and both of them are part of the glamour industry.

Her younger brother Phoenix List has also acted in movies like ‘Rabbit Hole’, ‘Night Has Settled’ and ‘Curios Thing’. Peyton, after watching ‘Wicked’ at the renowned ‘Broadway’ theatre, along with her mother, decided that she too wants to be an actor. Suzanne List, Peyton’s mother, was also a model and now Peyton is following her footsteps.
Peyton is so lazy that she would buy sneakers that are usually big for her, so that she can slip it off without tying or untying it.
