SPIN catches up with Ashley Tisdale

SPIN's Sarina Bellissimo caught up with High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale this week to chat about her new movie.

She stars in Disney+'s brand new film Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe.

Ashley also talked about what it was like growing up in the limelight, her relationship with former co-stars and more.

Phineas and Ferb

Ashley voiced Phineas' annoying sister Candace in Phineas and Ferb from 2007 to 2015.

She told Sarina that she missed everything about playing the character.

"I missed her crazy personality!"

Ashley went on, "She's one of my favourite characters that I've ever played just because you get to be so creative."

"Yeah she's just got that crazy energy and I really get to release some of my craziness."

Growing up in the limelight

Ashley worked as a Disney Channel actress from a young age, but she claims she had a pretty normal life outside of that.

Her parents made sure that she attended public schools growing up.

And she also had a job in a clothing shop.

Ashley added that she, "didn't really get successful until [she] was about 19."

The Sharpay actress said she was lucky that her popularity came when she was old enough to handle it.
