A force in two major entertainment arenas during the mid- to late 2000s, Hawaiian vocalist-cum-actress Janel Parrish emerged as both a pop star ascendant (thanks to extensive soundtrack inclusion) and an ingenue actress with the release of the 2007 comedy drama Bratz. As a live-action cinematic rendering of the Bratz doll phenomenon that hit American households like a tidal wave shortly after the turn of the millennium, the film told of four young women (each based on one of the dolls) and their issue-ridden transitions from middle school to high school. The half-Chinese, half-Caucasian Parrish brought the Jade doll to life onscreen. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
