Zac Efron (or [[FanNickname Zefron]]) is an American Actor whose first (and most famous) major role was as Troy in ''Film/HighSchoolMusical''. Since then, some think that [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct he has branched into a more "serious" actor with better performances.]] He often plays the BigManOnCampus.

He dated [[RealLifeRelative HSM co-star]] Music/VanessaHudgens for three years. They split in late 2010; both attribute the breakup to simply growing up.

He may [[MemeticMutation also be]] [[Manga/DeathNote Kira]].

!!Tropes applying to Zac:
* AscendedMeme: Possibly. Apparently he's in talks to be in the American adaptation of ''Manga/DeathNote''.
** Now rumor has it that he turned down the part citing the need to cast Asian actors for the Asian characters, avoiding a RaceLift. Which is surprisingly noble for someone whose public image was once that of a vapid pretty boy.
* [[IAmNotSpock I Am Not Troy Bolton]]: With the exception of ''17 Again'' and ''The Lucky One'', All of his post-HSM films kept flopping at the box office until 2014, with smash box office success of ''Neighbors'' and the modest success of ''That Awkward Moment''.
* MrFanservice: Takes his shirt off a lot. Is also ''tricked'' into taking his shirt off a lot.
* OneOfUs: Is known to be a fan of ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' and ''Manga/DeathNote'', the latter of which may contribute to the above. Reportedly, he was asked by Disney to downplay his more nerdy tendencies.
** Some of his potential projects that eventually ended up in DevelopmentHell were live-action adaptations of ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' and ''Fire'' by Image comics. He was also heavily into VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft.
