Brenda Song become an international teen idol in 2006 after she starred in Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior–one of Disney Channel’s top rated original movies with 5.7+ million viewers on premiere night.

Others may know her as London Tipton, the spoiled hotel heiress on the T.V. show “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”–a show that received the highest rates for any Disney production.

Brenda, a California-native, has a Hmong dada and a Thai American mother (adopted by a Hmong family). Her paternal grandparents were part of the Xiong clan.

Brenda holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and was named an All-American Scholar in ninth grade. She also earned a high school diploma at the age  of 16. She won an Asian Excellence Award nomination for “Outstanding Newcomer” and three wins at the Young Hollywood Awards.

Brenda Song was named by TV Guide as on “The 13 Hottest Young Stars To Watch.” She ranked ninth in Netscape’s “Top 10 Pretty Petites in Entertainment” and CosmoGIRL! and Popstar! Magazine named her “Queen of Disney.” Askmen.com named her “Actress of the Year.” Despite her success, Brenda remains grounded, according to Time, Brenda is one of three Disney starlets who have not been involved in the Hollywood party girl scene (along with Hilary Duff and Raven-Symoné).

“Besides Hollywood grand-openings and award shows, I try to stay away from the parties. It’s so easy to be swept away from that whole scene because it’s expected of you. I’ve never drank or smoked in my entire life.

Brenda is currently in a Disney series called “Pass the Plate,” which is a multicultural series produced in 10 countries. It aims to inspire kids and tweens to lead a healthier lifestyle by sharing cultural and historical facts about food and cooking.
