Biography

Ashley Tisdale's older sister Jennifer Tisdale had already blazed an acting trail by the time the young girl decided that performing was her passion as well. A relative of tele-business man Ron Popeil as well as the developer for Ginsu Knives, Ashley had an easiness in front of an audience that ran in her family, and she began making appearances on TV shows like 7th Heaven and Charmed when she was just a preteen. During this time, she also worked as a Ford model, building up a resumé that would surely leave her prepared for a serious career by the time she reached adulthood, but fame came knocking early for Tisdale, when she was cast in the Disney TV movie High School Musical. A chance to showcase both her charisma and her singing ability, the movie became a huge success that was wildly popular among kids and preteens. She appeared in both of the sequels to that made-for-cable smash, and starred in the spinoff film Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure. She also began voicing the part of the sister on the Disney animated series Phineas and Ferb. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
