After High School Musical

After Zac made a name for himself in High School Musical, the star wasted no time in continuing and furthering his passion for acting. He featured in major films, such as 17 Again, Dirty Grandpa, The Lucky One, and Neighbors

Many of his fans couldn’t help but realize that he was accepting more and more roles in mature movies. Our guess is that he did this to move away from the ‘pretty boy’ image that High School Musical had painted for him. 


More so, the fact that he starred in various comedies and dramas proved to filmmakers that he was an extremely versatile and talented actor.
