Singer-actress Ashley Tisdale has been working in the entertainment industry since she was a toddler, with an impressive number of credits to show for it. Born in New Jersey in 1985, she was signed to a management contract at the age of 3. As a young child, she appeared in more than 100 national TV commercials as well as touring musical-theater productions. She soon turned her attention to Hollywood, landing a recurring role in the Disney Channel series ‘The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.’ But it was the 2006 Disney TV-movie ‘High School Musical’ that really skyrocketed her to stardom. A pair of pop albums followed, along with more acting parts, including more ‘HSM’ projects. Tisdale married musician Christopher French in September 2014 and has added producer to her many job titles.
