Let’s face it lately Disney’s animated films are not as popular as they were 20 and even 10 years ago. So, Disney decides to throw all its efforts into motion picture. And that was a brilliant move – High School Musical was that wave of success that Monique Coleman rode on cast in the role of Taylor McKessie.
Let’s be honest, who have heard of such names as Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman and Lucas Grabeel? These youngsters were below the radar until High School Musical launched its three-stage attack.
OK, some may have heard of and/or seen them in various small roles here and there. But it’s the HSM fame that brought these names to attention of the industry moguls.
Monique, born in November of 1980 in Orangeburg, California, expressed her interest in acting since childhood. She tried her hand at various stage performances and TV appearances. And after graduating from high school, she received a bachelor of arts in DePaul University in Chicago. Then she moves back to California, and currently lives in Los Angeles.
By now she already has an impressive resume in a rather short time span: guest appearances in Malcolm in the Middle, Bones, Gilmore Girls, Boston Public, Strong Medicine, 10-8: Officers on Duty and Veronica Mars; she starred as Mary-Margaret in TV-series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
Life is quite an adventure for this busy upcoming actress. Monique dreams to become a source of inspiration for many young men and women, and this star of High School Musical sensation is gradually becoming it.
