Brenda Song launched her career as a teen role model by starring on family-friendly television shows and in feature films. The Disney Channel often cast the Asian-American star in roles that showcased her comedic wit, likeability, and natural star quality. Her scene-stealing portrayal of a spoiled yet charming hotel heiress on Disney Channel hits "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" (2005-07) and its spin-off "The Suite Life on Deck" (2008- ) made Song one of the most popular and well loved young actresses of her generation, while her role made history as one of the longest-running female characters on the network. She made a subtle yet inspired transition into more mature projects, playing a seductive co-ed in 2010's Oscar-nominated "The Social Network." Song's performance in the semi-biographical drama about the creators of Facebook earned the versatile actress rave critical reviews and poised her to take on much heavier roles throughout her career.
