• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Zacefron 197.jpg

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 generally 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

  • 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.
  • Blue Eyes: Just look at them!
  • Closet Geek: See One of Us. He's had to play down some of his nerdish tendencies since the success of High School Musical.
    • He's gone on record stating that he's happy now that he's done with his Disney phase and can drop all pretense and be a nerd publicly.
  • Cool Car: Averted for a long time, it wasn't until after HSM 3 that he replaced the Oldsmobile Alero he had gotten from his grandfather with a typically-Hollywood Cool Car.
  • One of Us: He's confessed to being hopelessly addicted to World of Warcraft and lobbied for the role of Link in Hairspray because he was such a fan of the musical despite it being almost as far from High School Musical as you can get. He also reads several manga, including Death Note. Hmm...
  • Pretty Boy
