Ashley Tisdale was born in New Jersey in 1985. She was indoctrinated into the entertainment business at an early age and became familiar with the industry through her sister, who also works as an actress. When she was just a toddler, she began working with a manager in order to book acting gigs, mainly commercials and small projects. Tisdale then began working in stage productions, and her impressive singing voice brought her early success in plays such as The Sound of Music.

As a young teenager, Tisdale and her family moved to California to further her acting career. She began booking gigs on television shows and movies, including appearances in films like Donnie Darko and a voice role in A Bug’s Life. Tisdale got her big break in 2006 when she was cast as Sharpay Evans in the wildly popular movie High School Musical. She went on to appear in the film’s sequel and to sing songs from the film for film, television, and stage. Although she has gone on to act in many other projects, including the sitcom Carol’s Second Act, opposite Patricia Heaton, many fans still know and love her as Sharpay Evans.

Sharpay Evans in High School Musical might have been a drama queen, but Tisdale definitely isn’t. She has been with one person for the majority of her public life. Tisdale began dating Christopher French, a composer and singer, in late 2012, and the two got engaged only eight months later. Tisdale and her musician love interest got married in September 2014, in a low-key ceremony that was attended by several of her High School Musical co-stars. 

While Tisdale and French primarily keep their relationship away from the spotlight, the actress has talked about her marriage from time to time, recently revealing that although it can be hard to balance both career and marriage, the two know what their priorities are and try to spend as much time together as they can. It is also clear that Tisdale is French’s biggest fan, and totally supports his musical career.

What is Christopher French best known for?

Ashley Tisdale might be a well-known actress, but Christopher French is definitely no slouch. Born in California in 1982, French has worked on a wide variety of musical and television projects and is best known as a talented composer. He is the lead singer of the band Annie Automatic, touring all over the world to perform, and is a force to be reckoned with in the world of electronic instrumental music. 

French is also classically trained and studied at the Musician’s Institute for Recording Engineering as well as the Berklee College Of Music for Film Scoring & Orchestration. He has also worked on the TV series Young & Hungry, alongside his wife, Ashley Tisdale. After six years of marriage, French is clearly as happy as ever with Tisdale – in the drama-filled world of Hollywood relationships, theirs is refreshingly normal.
