The Beautiful Women of Thailand with Brenda Song, Tata Young, Paula Taylor and more
Continuing around the world, we come to a country that is heavily influenced by both China and India, Thailand.
There are a little over 64 million people in Thailand, and a lot of beautiful women.
So this is a look at some of the beautiful Thai women that are popular there, and a few that you may have heard of here.....
Popular actress, singer, and model Brenda Song is half Hmong and half Thai (both her parents were born in Asia).
She was born on March 27th, 1988 in Carmichael, California, but her family moved to Los Angeles when she was six.
Brenda started out as a child fashion model in San Francisco, but caught the eye of a talent agent and was soon doing commercials.
Her first acting role was in Requiem (1995) a narrative short film directed by actress Elizabeth Sung.
She appeared in several movies after that, notably A 2004's Cinderella Story (a teen romantic comedy film with Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray), Like Mike (2002), a small role in 1997's Leave It to Beaver and the 2002 Disney Channel Original Movie, Get a Clue.

In 2006, she got her first starring role in the Disney Channel Original Movie Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior.
As a child, Brenda started taking taekwondo, so when she slipped into this role, she not only took her acting ability, but her martial arts skills as well (Brenda has a black belt and she did a lot of her own stunts).
