I know what you mean, but I don't think "humility" is the right term.

"I don't believe Zac deep down believe's he is worthy of all of this..." I think he is surprised, but I don't think he believes he is unworthy. That's why he works so hard, to justify his success to himself ("I may not be the most talented actor but I will work harder than anyone").

In addition to charm, he must possess the kind of confidence that convinces other people that he's the right guy for the part. Kenny Ortega described Zac's manner during the HSM audition as "ease and charm" so that even when he screwed up, it turned out better than if he had done it right. That ease indicates the confidence I'm talking about.

Richard Linklater, the only director who came looking to hire Zac, also testified to this when he said he cast Zac (after talking to him for "20 or 30 seconds") in M&OW because he needed a young actor who could play a teenager able to face off with Orson Welles, one of the most dominating personalities of the 20th century.

But Zac's real secret weapon is charm. He hates the idea because it's not something he can control. But I get the impression that many of the people he meets simply fall in love with him, regardless of age, gender, or status.

I agree with you completely.
