After all, the West Deal, New Jersey, native was first discovered in a mall when she was only 3 years old. “I was [there] with my mom” she recalls, “and this manager came up to us and asked if I wanted to be in commercials.” The answer, of course, was an emphatic "yes," and Ashley Tisdale was soon appearing in spots for big-name brands like J.C. Penney and T-Mobile. By the time she was 12, “Blondie” -- as she’s affectionately known -- had already toured the world as a leading cast member of Les Miserables and Annie. ashley tisdale does boston public Ashley Tisdale’s stellar stage work paved the way for a plethora of film and television projects, and she got the ball rolling in 1997 with a guest-starring role in the Omar Gooding series, Smart Guy.
