The dynamic brotherly duo of Cole and Dylan Sprouse kicked off their fame by sharing the spotlight in the 1999 comedy Big Daddy. Soon after, Cole made waves as Ross Geller’s son on Friends in 2000, but the real magic happened in 2005 when they both starred in Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack & Cody as the posh Martin brothers. This show was an instant hit, running for three seasons.
In 2008, the twins took their fun to the high seas with The Suite Life on Deck, set on a fancy cruise ship. After its 2011 finale, the cast went their separate ways, some surprising fans with new directions in their careers.
So, let’s see what the Suite Life crew has been cooking since!
1. Charlie Stewart
Charlie Stewart, who played Bob on The Suite Life, was already a hotshot child actor before the show. He’d been in TV gigs and even hung out with Tim Allen in The Santa Clause 3. After Suite Life, he co-starred with his old pals Cole and Dylan Sprouse in The Prince and the Pauper: The Movie and then appeared in How I Met Your Mother and Bones. But in 2013, Charlie wrapped up his acting journey with The Secret Life of Dorks. Showbiz didn’t call him back, and he took a different path.
2. Sophie Oda
Sophie Oda, who played Barbara Brownstein in The Suite Life, didn’t stop there as she later popped up in TV shows like The Big Bang Theory and Hawaii Five-0. But here’s the fun part: In 2020, she put on those iconic glasses from the show in a YouTube video. Turns out, those weren’t props – they were her actual glasses! Either way, Sophie also mentioned landing her Suite Life gig through a Hannah Montana casting. As a side gig, Sophie’s turned her love for unusual clothes into a little online hustle on Depop.
3. Ashley Tisdale
Ashley, who’s been in the acting game since ’95, joined the cast of Zack & Cody as the candy-counter Maddie for a mere ten episodes. But her real fame came after Disney’s High School Musical. After that, she dove into her music career with albums like Headstrong and Symptoms. But it was just the beginning. Ashley kept the acting train rolling with voice-over projects and guest-starred in Raising Hope and Sons of Anarchy. On the personal front, she married Christopher French in 2014 and had a cute baby named Jupiter in 2021.
