By: Sindy

She's barely graduated high school, but Brenda Song already has a very impressive resume. Get the goods on what this Suite Life star has been up to!

Sindy: Can you tell me a little about your new animated flick, Holidaze?

Brenda Song: Holidaze is a story about a Christmas that almost didn't happen. I don't want to give too much away, but it's about Rudolph's brother, Rusty. It's telling his side of the story and how Christmas kind of falls in his lap and to see the trials and tribulations he goes through to get Santa to where he needs to go. And along the way, Rusty meets all these weird characters - and the character I play is Trick or Treat, which are these two Halloween ghost twins, who I play with Emily Osment. And one of the ghosts is really goth and the other is like, a cheerleader, and we're there to give Rusty advice and just help him through this. It's kind of like the story that you never really heard.

Sindy: How is doing voice work different from acting in a sitcom?

Brenda Song: It's really cool cuz Emily and I had met each other before just from being in the Disney family and so when we walked in and saw each other we freaked out cuz it was awesome that we were working together. And it was just really fun. The best part for me was just that I could be in sweats, I didn't have to wear make-up, I was in my pajamas and it totally didn't matter. It was just really cool cuz it doesn't matter what your face looks like, you could be making the craziest face and it didn't matter. It was just really laid back - it was just me and Emily in a booth and we were just chatting and it was just really fun.



Sindy: Your Original Disney Movie, Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior is now out on DVD - what was it like working on that project?

Brenda Song: It was completely different from working on Holidaze! No sitting down or goofing off for me. We shot that movie in New Zealand and we shot it in 24 days. So it was pretty intense. It was really different for me because working on a sitcom I have a great schedule, I get to really relax but when I was in New Zealand I was working 14 hour days, six days a week. I actually injured myself so it was really hard for me to do the martial arts because I had torn a ligament in my ankle. I had these obstacles I had to overcome but it was this really amazing experience and I wouldn't have traded it for anything.

Sindy: Did you have experience with martial arts before starting on Wendy Wu?

Brenda Song: Yes, I had taken Tae Kwon Do for seven years before starting training. But for the movie I had to learn Wu Shu and Salen Kung Fu which is completely different from Tae Kwon Do cuz its much more like a dance so it was really difficult but it was so much fun. It was a huge learning experience.
