Zac Efron ha rubato scene (e cuori) da quando la sua carriera di attore è iniziata nel 2006. Ha mostrato il suo fisico follemente strappato nel remake del 2017 del classico cult “Baywatch” e ha persino interpretato il carismatico serial killer Ted Bundy in “Extremely Wicked” di Netflix. , Incredibilmente malvagio e vile.” Ma di tutti i ruoli principali di Efron, pochi sembrano aver avuto l’impatto globale sentito dal suo personaggio in “High School Musical” di Disney Channel.
"A couple of the guys came up to me ... and we FaceTimed their cousins and their wives and people that were living in other places all over the world," Efron said. "They knew who I was the whole time and didn't say anything about it. It was pretty wild."
As for whether the former Disney Channel star would want to reprising the role that made him globally recognizable, Efron is hopeful about a "High School Musical" reboot. "I mean to have an opportunity in any form to go back and work with that team would be so amazing," Efron recently explained to E! News. With Efron's "HSM" co-star Lucas Grabeel also having said his "door is always open" to a reunion (per J-14), there may be some hope a revival becomes reality. However, both Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale have been vocal in the past about not wanting to return to East High, so we won't bet on it yet.
