The Star


The breakout star of High School Musical is Zac Efron, who plays Troy. Efron has parlayed his performance in HSM into an appearance in the recent Hairspray film. Although Efron is a "triple threat" (meaning that he can act, sing, and dance), in the original film he does not do most of his own singing. If that doesn't crush your daughter's conception of him, maybe this will: According to the Internet Movie Database, Efron is also dating his HSM co-star, Vanessa Hudgens, in real life.
