Zac Efron/Troy Bolton Appreciation #12: Because Disney may have objectified him and we're not complaining about it!

Zac Efron/Troy Bolton Appreciation Thread #12





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; has Me and Orson Welles due out in cinemas late 2009 and is filming The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. 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.

#2 -- Wet!Zac = fangirl overload
#3 -- "Efron managed to come off as appreciative and humble."
#4 -- Because he's an idiot for endangering his life but we love him anyway
#5 -- Because he's doing bigger things but you can bet on it he still makes us scream
#6 -- Because with his body who can think of titles?
#7 -- B/C cutting the shower scene? Explain Disney! *irked*
#8 -- B/C even though his jersey says "14", he'll forever be #1 in our hearts
#9 -- Because with calendars like his, 2010 cannot come soon enough!
#10 -- Because this guy is the real deal
#11 -- Because he causes fangirl responses like "holy ****" *laugh* "I like your tie!" *blush*

Thanks for the birthday book. The pages are filled with so many wonderful memories! I can’t believe what a gifted group you are. The poetry and art work are absolutely mind blowing. What a masterpiece. Every year you guys are becoming more and more talented. Obviously, I’m not the only one growing up ;-) It’s heartwarming to read your adventures, experiences and confessions. It’s inspiring to read about your hopes and dreams. Everything is happening so fast in my life, I feel like I missed that moment where I was supposed to enjoy to the scenery. Thanks for giving back that moment.

Just wanted to say once again how grateful I am to have such devoted fans. Having you by my side on this journey gives me the confidence to do anything! I guess we’re growing up together. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing so much joy in your words! You are the best part of what I do. I love you all. Thanks for believing in me. I won’t let you down.

Forever yours,

Zac

Every time I think I cannot love him more.... there I go a little further, falling into this deep bottomless pit of fangirl goo and love.
