Creator: Zac Efron
Zac Efron (or Zefron) is an American Actor whose first (and most famous) major role was as Troy in High School Musical. Since then, some think that he has branched into a more "serious" actor with better performances. He often plays the Big Man on Campus.

He dated HSM co-star Vanessa Hudgens for three years. They split in late 2010; both attribute the breakup to simply growing up.

He may also be Kira.

Movies Zac Efron have been in include:

Tropes applying to Zac:

  • Adam Westing: He appeared in a SNL sketch as Troy Bolton returning to East High to tell the seniors that in the real world people doesn't begin singing and dancing out of nowhere.
  • Ascended Meme: Possibly. Apparently he's in talks to be in the American adaptation of Death Note.
    • Now rumor has it that he turned down the part citing the need to cast Asian actors for the Asian characters, avoiding a Race Lift. Which is surprisingly noble for someone whose public image was once that of a vapid pretty boy.
  • I Am Not Troy Bolton: With the exceptions 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.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Takes his shirt off a lot. Is also tricked into taking his shirt off a lot.
  • One of Us: Is known to be a fan of Naruto and Death Note, the latter of which may contribute to the above. Reportedly, he was asked by Disney to downplay his more nerdy tendencies.
