Brenda Julietta Song is a famous actress, who gained initial popularity as the Disney channel star. She appeared in the center of public attention at a tender age of 10, when she was cast to the series “Fudge”. Although she played a small part there, her radiant smile and childish charm made TV producers of that time pay attention to her. In the early 2000s, she starred in tremendously popular series “The Suite Life of Zack” in the company of two other celebrities, twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse.
She was born in the family of a Thai mother and Hmong father. Ms. Song has two younger brothers. Her family was very poor, that’s why some of her childhood dreams didn’t fulfill. For example, she wanted to take ballet classes, but they were too expensive for her parents. Instead of them, she was taken to taekwondo. Now she is a black belt holder.
She started acting at the age of 6, almost by chance. She got sick and didn’t want to take medicine. Her grandmother promised to take her to acting school if she would take her “Robitussin” as it’s demanded. Brenda did it, and her grandma took all her savings (which were quite small) to pay for Song’s acting lessons.
At the age of 6, Brenda got her first paid acting job. She appeared in the commercials of “Little Caesars Pizza”. After that, she moved her way on TV and very soon gained popularity as the child actress.
Unlike many other child stars, she coped with all the problems of adulthood and turned into a professional mature actress, who disclosed every facet of her talent. In her film list, there are hits “The Social Network”, “ER”, “New Girl” and many others.
Brenda has never been married legally, but she used to date many famous men. During many years she was a girlfriend of Trace Cyrus, hooked up with the rapper Flo Rida and finally settled down near the movie star Macaulay Culkin.
