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.

There wasn't enough questions or material. A good interview should make the reader have a better sense of who the person is. I don't know any more about Zac than before

THANK YOU!! And i agree w/ what you're saying. Good effort on the interview, but maybe more questions about Zac HIMSELF instead the normal "hi. how are you?" kind of thing. I really didn't think it was that great.

It seems like he interviewed at a premiere or something. There wasn't a lot of time to get a long interview. Give the guy some credit, at least he got to meet him and ask him some questions. :)

I haven't seen HSM 3. I think HSM1 and HSM2 are OK, but I don't personally like them(no offense), I just think Zac Efron is way cute!

You should watch the third one. It's the best one of all of them. And I agree about him being cute :)
