Brenda Song turns 24 today, but we’ll always remember her as “that girl on Suite Life with Zack & Cody/On Deck.” Sorry, it’s the best we can do—by the time that show rolled around, we were too old to care about what her character’s name is*. But we’ve never forgotten that Brenda got her start on Disney; in fact, it provided a fair amount of irony when she got engaged to grunge wannabe Trace Cyrus, brother of her former co-star Miley Cyrus.
In honor of Brenda’s birthday, we’ve pulled out our remote controls and strolled down memory lane, recalling other Disney sidekicks who briefly rubbed elbows with more famous stars like Miley, Hilary Duff, and the like. Plus, we find out what they’re up to now!
