In honor of his new film “The Lucky One” hitting theaters this week, I have decided to spotlight a gentleman that needs no introduction…
Whenever I hear Zac Efron’s name I get whiplash trying to locate him. Let’s be real, I know that he would never be in the same vicinity as me, but a girl can dream.
The beautiful and lovely Zachary David Alexander Efron was gloriously born Oct. 18, 1987 and hails from San Luis Obispo, California.
Fun Fact: Even though the beautiful and lovely Zac is agnostic, the name “Efron” means lark in Hebrew.
Zac graduated from Arroyo Grande High School in 2006 and during his time there participated in many theatre productions such as, “Gypsy,” “The Music Man” and “Peter Pan.” Zac was accepted to USC, but deferred his enrollment in order to pursue his acting/singing dreams.
Some of Zac’s early work consisted of guest spots on “ER,” “The Guardian,” “Summerland” and “CSI: Miami.” At this point in his career, Zac was still searching for that breakout roll. Who would have thought that the Disney Channel and a little movie called “High School Musical” would catapult him to the top.
Since the premiere of “High School Musical,” life for the beautiful and lovely Zac has been a whirlwind. He has appeared and/or starred in:
- Vanessa Hudgens’ music video “Say OK“
- Played Link Larkin in “Hairspray“
- Graced “High School Musical 2 and 3″ with his presence
- Surprised in “Me and Orson Wells“
- Made me cry in “Charlie St. Cloud“
- And made a cameo in “New Years Eve“
Up next for Zac is his highly anticipated role in “The Lucky One.” Maybe it’s not highly anticipated for you…but it is for me! Have you seen the preview?!
As for his personal life, Zac was linked to Vanessa Hudgens…they met on the set of “High School Musical.” Thankfully for the rest of us ladies they broke up in December 2010.
Next up for Zac is a starring role alongside Nicole Kidman in “The Paperboy.”
Zac – I will never forget that time you dropped the magnum condom on the red carpet. It made all the women in, I’m gonna say it, the entire world swoon. Stay classy, Zac.
