Brittany Curran

 

Brittany Curran is quickly blossoming into one of Hollywood's premier and talented young actors. From
her uncanny, comedic style as Chelsea on Disney's “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and “The Suite
Life on Deck” to her portrayal of the tormented Helena in the feature film “The Uninvited,” Brittany
adeptly demonstrates her passion and penchant for a myriad of genres and characters.
Brittany, born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, spent most of her childhood growing up on Cape Cod. In
addition to beginning acting classes in Boston at age nine, Brittany also studied tap, jazz, ballet, violin and
performed in The Nutcracker Suite on Cape Cod for several years. At 11 her family moved to L.A.
Once settled, Brittany quickly booked roles on “Mad TV” and the “Power Rangers.” She next shot her
first commercial for the Olympics opposite a childhood hero, Olympian skater Michelle Kwan, and then
went on to secure principle commercial roles for such juggernaut institutions as KFC, Campbell's Soup,
Post Cereal, Sears, T-Mobile, AT&T, Hewlett Packet, Sea World, Olive Garden et al.

Brittany broke into the primetime on Mel Gibson's ABC sitcom “Complete Savages.” In the feature film
“13 Going On 30,” Brittany played Brittany Reese, one of the popular six chicks who antagonized the
young Jennifer Garner, then starred in the AFI coming-of-age film “Frenching” directed by Kellie Martin.
It was at this time in the budding actressʼ career that she booked her first lead in the Disney film “Go
Figure,” in which she portrayed an Olympic-skating prospect opposite Kristy Yamaguchi. She then
appeared in “Akeelah and the Bee” before securing a recurring guest-star role as Carly on
Nickelodeon's “Drake and Josh.”

In 2007, Kidzworld.com (a leading child and teen magazine) selected Brittany as one of the "Top-Five-
Faces-To-Watch.” And with her now-recurring guest-star role as the rich, prissy, intellectually challenged
Chelsea on “The Suite Life Zack and Cody,” Brittany really began to enchant young audiences.
Brittany next starred in the Universal film “The Haunting Hour” as well as the horror film “The Uninvited,”
in which she portrayed Helena, a teen mother who is tormented and murdered. Her portrayal of the
character was utterly riveting and illustrates Brittany's enormous potential as a young actor. Recently,
Brittany starred opposite Lucas Grabeel (“High School Musical”) as his leading lady in the feature film
"The Adventures of Food Boy."
