In 2001 she starred in The Other Side of Heaven, but she became a household name overnight when she did the Disney hit The Princess Diaries. It was so successful that a sequel, The Princess Diaries: A Royal Engagement, was released in 2004. In 2002 she became a part of a concert called Carnival and provided voice for The Cat Returns.
