Zac Efron/Troy Bolton App. #16: Because Maui + Calendar Outtakes + Dodger Game= PERFECTION!

Zac Efron/Troy Bolton Appreciation Thread #16

High School Musical 1 gave us the story of Troy Bolton, basketball playmaker and East High's hottie superbum,
and his journey to discovering more about himself. Fate played its part in unveiling Troy's undiscovered passion
and talent for music and the art of performance. Ultimately Troy proves triumphant, proving that you don't need
to be defined by the status quo of any particular stereotype.

Troy's journey in High School Musical 2 takes him to a scary place - contemplating his future. What began as a
fun and productive way to spend his summer - working with his friends - became a moral dilemma. Balancing
friends and fun with the opportunities provided by the Redhawks and a promotion was harder than anticipated,
and Troy began to question his life priorities. He learns the value of remaining true to oneself.

The pressures of senior year and making decisions about the future are prevalent in High School Musical 3,
where Troy is faced with deciding where he will be after college. His life path had always been set in stone - to
follow in his fathers footsteps by playing basketball at the University of Albuquerque. However when
faced with alternate prospects - such as pursuing his love of theater, or attending one of the other schools who've
contacted him - Troy must cast aside the expectations everyone else has for him and make the decision which is right for him.

Zachary David Alexander Efron was born October 18, 1987, to loving parents David and Starla Efron. Growing up in San Luis Obispo, California, Zac lived a laidback lifestyle of an average kid coming from a loving family. He had a passion for performing, participating in local theater productions and gaining small guest appearances on shows such as Firefly, ER, Without A Trace and The Guardian. It was a recurring guest role on Summerland - which became a spot as a permanent cast member - which propelled Zac to small time fame. But it wasn't until landing the role of Troy Bolton in the Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical that Zac became somewhat of a household name. His subsequent role as Link Larkin in 2007's Hairspray remake which proved that Zac has the chops to really make a name for himself in the business.

Since then, Zac returned to his role of Troy Bolton in DCOM High School Musical 2 and once again on the big screen for High School Musical 3. He's proved himself as an award winning comedic actor for his role of Mike O'Donnell in 17 Again; waded out into dramatic waters both in Me and Orson Welles in late 2009; and in the July 2010 release of The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. He has established his own production company entitled Ninjas Runnin' Wild which has a slew of projects under its belt in the works and in development. In between establishing his career as a versatile, charismatic and talented actor, Zac has filmed guest appearances for Entourage and Robot Chicken, participated in worldwide press tours, and been featured on the covers of prestigious magazines including GQ, Interview and Rolling Stone. Through all the fame and being one of America's most sought after young talents, Zac remains humble and genuine, living life as normally as he can and always expressing gratitude for the support he receives. Undoubtedly High School Musical was only the beginning for Zac.
