Brenda Song Says She Wasn’t Ready For ‘Something Dark & Crazy’ Yet After Her ‘Suite Life’ Days

Brenda Song stuns in a chic pink pantsuit during an appearance on The IMDb Show last week in Studio City, Calif.

The 32-year-old actress stopped by to promote her new Netflix movie, Secret Obsession, and while there, got candid about making a transition from Disney to more mature roles.

“I, obviously, wouldn’t be here without that show,” Brenda said about starring on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. “At the time, Disney Channel was giving me my own TV movies, which was – you know, at 17, 18 it made me really exciting that kids could watch and say like, ‘oh, look at this Asian-American actress on TV,’ like that’s so inspiring and they were doing that, you know, ten, 15 years ago, which is incredible.”

She adds, “At the same time, when you want to make that transition, it’s really hard to allow people to believe that you can be other people, especially when they’ve known you so long as one person.”

“I think that was the thing coming out of Disney was everyone was like, ‘well, you have to do something dark and something crazy to show people you can act and do something different,’ and I, personally, wasn’t ready for that. I had never gone to a house party before – things like that.”

Secret Obsession is streaming now on Netflix, and Brenda‘s new series, Amphibia, is airing now on Disney Channel, too.
