Much Of ‘High School Musical’ Cast Not Returning For Fourth Film, Says Efron
Another June has come and, with it, another batch of soon to be high school graduates across the country, counting down the days until they are free forever from homework, and exams, and third period gym. But, then, there’s also this secret and scandalous thought (don’t try to hide it from us, we’ve been there), “Can’t it go on just a little bit longer?”
Not for Troy, Gabriella, or Sharpay reiterated “High School Musical” star Zac Efron, insisting that he hasn’t had any second thoughts or (excuse us) changed his “tune,” since he insisted in January that “High School Musical 3” would be his last go-round at East High.
“This is probably going to be the last one for a lot of the cast,” he said. “It’s graduation, a lot of us have to move on.”
The franchise, of course, will go on, as “High School Musical 4” has already been announced. And Efron, too, will continue to work in films like “Seventeen Again” and “Me and Orson Wells.”
But if never the two shall meet again, then Efron is happy he can leave the series better off than when he came to it.
“It’s kind of an honor to have ever been a part of it. So I’m thrilled just to have done it, the fanbase that it created,” he said. “We’re making a great third film and I think it’s going to be a great legacy to leave for the Wildcats.”
Zac named number 24 on AfterElton.com's Hot 100 of 2008 proving gay and straight people alike love Zac's extremely well-toned body. As if you needed to be reminded but just for fun:
Apparently Zac is a part of Malaysian magazine Galaxie's 25 Under 25 Brightest Stars Today. I have no further info as I only have a scan of the cover featuring Zac which I stole from the source.
