Zac Efron

Politics United States - October 18th 1987

Zachary David Alexander Efron is a California native who, at the age of 11, was discovered by his own parents. They realized that he had a talent for singing, and arranged singing lessons for the young Efron. Eventually he ended up starring in the theatrical play "Gypsy" and since then he's never stopped his show business career.

After starring in several TV shows, including "Summerland," Efron rose to international fame in his break-through role as Troy Bolton in the 2006 hit-movie "High School Musical."

On the Billboard Hot 100 charts, Zac has had five simultaneous song credits for "Get'cha Head in the Game" (solo),  "Breaking Free" (duet), "Start of Something New" (duet), and "What I've Been Looking For" (duet) and "We're All in this Together" all credited to the soundtrack of "High School Musical."

The Efron-Vanessa Hudgens "Breaking Free" duet made the quickest rise to the top in the history of the Billboard Hot 100. It leapt from 86th to 4th place in one week.

Since then, Efron has starred in "Hairspray," "High School Musical 3," "Charlie St. Cloud," and "The Lucky One." He most recently starred in "The Paperboy" where he stars alongside Nicole Kidman.
