The Disney Channel is responsible for introducing us to many of our beloved hit shows when we were children, along with boosting many to stardom! Many actors and singers who are in their 20s now got their start on The Disney Channel – i.e. Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez – oh, and let us not forget Ashley Tisdale and Brenda Song!
Most of all though, we know you remember quite vividly the Sprouse twins. This pair drove us absolutely bonkers – in a good way. If you were a fan of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and the spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck, you’re probably getting a ton of flashbacks just thinking of the show right now. The hysterical laughs because of the twins, the famous Mr. Moseby, the sassy & spoiled London Tipton and the sometimes selfish Maddie Fitzpatrick are unforgettable. Rediscovering the episodes would surely be a treat!
We were quite fortunate to have this series as children, but where are they now that they are all grown up? Some of the actors have been lowkey on social media, while others enjoy posting away. If you’re dying to know what they’re up to and how they look, FYI, we have it all here for you.
20 Still Have A Soft Spot For Brenda Song
Brenda Song has been known for her kid-friendly stints on television, but we always had the hots for. Even though she’d be quite annoying just always prancing around on the show with all her goodies, we found her adorable.
Here is a recent up close and personal selfie that Song shared to her ‘gram account and it’s safe to say, she bloomed into a stunning lady.
19 It Is A Secret Obsession
Song said bye-bye to her childish shows and took the role of the female lead in the Netflix Original, Secret Obsession. We’re not so surprised by the title as she has always been a secret obsession of many – come on, just look at her.
While we would not go to the extent that the man does in this film, we’d certainly go gaga if we saw her looking that gorgeous in front of us.
18 Hey, It’s Ashley Tisdale
We’re sure the name Ashley Tisdale has not escaped your mind from the first time you saw her on The Suite Life. The candy-counter girl certainly caught the attention of many, but now, she’s all grown up.
Just when we thought the irresistible blonde could not get any hotter, she chopped off her locks and dyed them brown. Also, she’s married, so don’t get any ideas!
17 What A View
Look at that breathtaking view! No, we’re not talking about the beautiful and picturesque Canadian landscape behind her, but the actress and singer herself.
Sporting a red sweater dress and white booties, the trendsetter surely did not do any hiking. We don’t blame her though, she’s too busy looking like a top model.
16 Dylan Sprouse Changed Directions
We know that you have an open-mouth expression right now, but yes, that is indeed one of the twins, Dylan Sprouse! You probably expected him to still have his long and shaggy blonde locks, but Dylan is now a mature man. Dylan took a break from acting to look fierce in front of the camera – and does he ever.
15 Dylan, The Trendsetter
Which man would wake up in the morning and think of pairing a pink blazer with yellow trousers? The fashionable Dylan Sprouse would! Someone please get Dylan on a runway. We surely never expected him to look as sharp as he does.
We’re sure he felt at home when he sat front row at a Salvatore Ferragamo show.
14 The Other Twin
While Dylan has taken a break from the limelight, Cole took the other route and continued acting.
You may recognize him from the hit Archie Comics series, Riverdale. We’re also quite certain that when you discovered Cole Sprouse was Jughead Jones, you were just as taken aback as we were. He’s completely unrecognizable with the long and brown locks.
13 From Acting To Photography
Most child actors don’t thrive in Hollywood past their teenage years, but Cole has. And because he’s still on people’s minds, he makes the covers of magazines. The now 27-year-old (yes, the twins are really 27), just like his brother, is peculiar in the way he dresses. If a man could pull off a sequin top, he can pull off anything.
12 They Are Twins For A Reason
You really didn’t think that Dylan Sprouse attended the Salvatore Ferragamo show alone, did you? His twin brother, Cole, was right there next to him. These two brothers, who exploded as Disney stars, have always had each other’s backs. And they clearly both have the same taste in fashion – twins!
11 Remember Her?
How can you not remember Carey Martin? Played by Kim Rhodes, the actress certainly looks different. She no longer has her signature spikey blonde strands that we got used to, which is probably why we would not recognize her if she was across the street from us.
It’s an interesting phenomenon to see actresses you grew up with age in front of your very eyes, and Rhodes has aged like fine wine.
10 We Miss Mr. Moseby
Another actor who has aged so darn well? Phill Lewis – and the show would have been incomplete without him. Best known for his role as hotel manager, Mr. Moseby stole our hearts on the show. Clearly, we could not forget such a face!
9 Brenda Song Doesn’t Age
Doesn’t she look like a doll? Brenda Song is clearly living her best life – the life she kind-of lived in The Suite Life.
Song loves to share pictures of her life on the ‘gram, and we are truly grateful that she does. Go take a quick look, she’s sure to rock your world. Plus, she just keeps getting better with age.
8 Still Has Some London Tipton In Her
If one girl knows how to work the camera, it’s London Tipton – sorry, we meant to say Brenda Song.
If you were sitting in front of the television watching The Suite Life daily, then you know how sassy London Tipton was. Song is all grown up, but that doesn’t mean she lost that side to her. Truthfully, we’re not even staring at the beach.
7 Wasn’t Esteban The Best?
We know, had we not said that was Esteban without his famous hat, you probably would have scrolled down. Adrian R’Mante, who played the actor with the longest name on the show, is a family man now. How rad would it be to have him as a father? The father of two still looks pretty badass.
6 Our Girl Crush Forever
You’re lying if you say you did not fall in love with the blondie on The Suite Life. If she didn’t, well, we’re sure this picture and the many others on her ‘gram account, will win your heart. We love how humble and laid-back the A-lister is. Plus, she’s a natural beauty, need we say more?
5 More Music?
There’s something quite distinctive about Tisdale’s looks. The multi-talented beauty never tries too hard and always appears serene; in our eyes, there’s no other Ashley Tisdale.
Of the entire cast though, Tisdale has proven to be the most successful with her singing career and recognized song writing.
And we’re totally digging the vintage look!
4 A Mature Dylan
Brad Pitt, is that you? No folks, it’s Dylan Sprouse. We grew up watching the twins and recognizing them instantly with their blonde bobs, so we forgive you if you did not think this was Dylan because of his shaved hair. We give props to Dylan for the mature look and sending out some old school vibes.
3 Looks A Little More Like The Dylan We Know
How versatile and fashionable is Dylan? He looks handsome with just about any haircut. However, we must give this look a huge A plus, as he is channeling some serious James Dean vibes. With the slicked back hair and leather jacket, he looks like the star he is.
2 A 50’s Cole
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
Here is Dylan’s twin, Cole, looking like he came out of the 50s, too. They were evidently blessed with good looks and fantastic genes. However, Cole could have totally fooled us with this look, as we barely noticed the actor who looks like a professional model. And we’re just loving the pensive pose.
1 New Beginnings
Cole may have been on the screen again as Jughead, but he developed other passions over the years. Not only does he know how to work the camera, but he also is an expert at using them. Are we the only one getting some serious Leonardo DiCaprio vibes with the money shot? You do you, Cole!
