Are you excited to film the next “High School Musical”?

Yeah, I can’t wait to get back. I’m not sure where we’re going to be filming, but we’re probably going back to Utah. It was a blast and hopefully we can have it happen again.

What’s it like working with Kenny Ortega?

The man is an absolute genius. It’s so fun to work with him. The energy he provides is enough to feed off of for months. It’s great.

Do you and the cast members hang out outside of work?

Yeah, a little more than the average. You normally hear about people who come to work on movies and then don’t hear from each other for five years, but we see each other probably a little too much. [Laughs] We are all best friends and are together all the time.

What advice would you give someone who wants to be an actor?

I would say go out and get into theater because that’s where you have the most fun and it’s a great place to learn. Get out there, do theater, see if you like it, and if you enjoy the experience, keep at it. Who knows where it will take you.

It was a good interview I think. Good queststions. A lot of professionals don't even ask those questions. I love how you didn't ask about the movie really just behind the scenes stuff. :) Nice work!

woah guys. I'm NOT  a zach efron fan (can't even spell his name right...can I? i have no idea...) but you don't have to be such jerks. and YOU allypetey need to grow up. dude. seriously. how old are YOU?? six? seven? by the way you treat other people that'd be my guess!! anyway. I think it's cool you got to meet a celeb. I'd give anything to get an interveiw with some famous person. (even if he is an actor from high scool musical......) and did you guys know that like....75% (or something) ... (more »)

Rude much? You don't even know him. Don't say bad things about him just because your jelous of him! He could be really nice. You know nothing about him and it's people like you who make celebraties want to commit suicide.

You combined two defense mechanisms into one line. You imagine I'm smug and not simply accurate in my self assessment. And you use the term 'dust' to try to defend yourself against the fact that I make you feel small.

Keep raging though, and try to prove your point. :)
