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.

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) of actors commit suicide because people like you guys are jerks and don't know how to act mature and just get over things like this? Jeeze.

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.

It wasn't in depth, and they were questions that you could find by looking up "Zac Efron interview" on Youtube. It was a good effort, and maybe you were just nervous because he's famous or whatever, but those are just my thoughts.
