Ashley Tisdale told collider.com, Its so funny, because before Disney, I did tons of stuff. I did network shows. I had done Donnie Darko. Im grateful for what Disney gave me and the experiences that I got, but at the end of the day, I can do so much more than what I did on that channel and in those movies. It takes just one person to give you that chance. When I was asked to do [Sons of Anarchy], I was just so excited. I think this is the transition time for me, as an actress.
