Brenda Song has rapidly emerged as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after young actresses. Brenda can next be seen in the hit Hulu series “Dollface,” in the lead role of ‘Madison Maxwell.” The show stars Brenda, Kat Dennings and Shay Mitchell. “Dollface” hails from writer Jordan Weiss (Harley Quinn), ABC Signature Studios and producers Margot Robbie and Brett Hedblom from Lucky Chap Entertainment and Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan from Clubhouse Pictures (I Tonya) and is a TV comedy that follows a young woman (Dennings’) who after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend – tries to rekindle the female friendships she left behind. The show just finished its second season on Hulu.

Brenda is also voicing a self-centered 13-year-old Thai American girl named ‘Anne Boonchuy’ in “Amphibia,” the Disney animated series that follows the adventures of Anne after she is magically transported to Amphibia, a land full of talking frog-people. Brenda’s past credits include as a series regular on the CBS television show “Pure Genius” as well as recurring roles Fox’s “New Girl” ABC’s “Scandal” and “Station 19”. Brenda is best known for playing ‘London Tipton’ on the popular series “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” for three seasons on Disney Channel.
