In 2006, Efron was cast to a leading role to «High School Musical», where his partner on the set became charming Vanessa Hudgens. Three youngsters, whose lives were just turned around after the casting to the school musical, became favorites of so many young spectators, so the sequels of their story didn’t make them wait for a long. Two parts of it, «High Musical 2» and «High Musical: Senior Year» – were released very soon. It’s noteworthy, that in the first part of the film Zac didn’t sing by himself but for the second and the third parts he had already recorded 8 and 10 songs respectively.
