Sharon Jordan (born March 11, 1960) is an American actress. One of her notable roles is Irene the Concierge in the Disney Channel sitcom The Suite Life of Zack & Cody .[1]Jordan also appeared as Irene in That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana, the first Disney crossover special with the three shows, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Hannah Montana, and That's So Raven.[2] In addition, Jordan has co-starred on several independent films including Day in the Life of Doe, Rift, I.D., Dead End Falls, Blind, and Some Sunny Day.

Jordan's recurring guest star roles on the Disney Channel are significant, and previous actors in her position have consequently been offered a bevy of big screen offers.

It is a production of the Playhouse West Repertory Theater group and was written by Tony Savant and directed by Robert Carnegie.[3] Other notable actors who have performed in this production include James Franco, Ashley Judd, Mark Pellegrino, Jim Parrack, and Holly Gagnier, to name just a few of the actors who have been cast in this ongoing play. The acting school Playhouse West was founded by Jeff Goldblum and Robert Carnegie in 1981.
