Propelled to the front of the stage very early, Zachary David Alexander Efron took his first singing lessons at the age of 11 and took to the stage soon after in Gypsy: A musical fable. Determined to continue in the entertainment world, he made a few appearances in series such as Urgences, Firefly or Le Protecteur. But it was in 2004, with the Summerland series that Zac Efron was revealed to the general public. He plays Cameron, a young teenager passionate about surfing. His performance earned him other appearances in NCIS: Special Investigations or CSI: Miami.
In 2006, the actor participated in the American TV movie High School Musical in which he was the headliner. This musical reveals a Zac Efron both actor and singer. A success that does not leave indifferent since it is what would have pushed John Travolta to choose him to play alongside him in the musical Hairspray. In 2007, Zac Efron took on the costume of Troy Bolton again in High School Musical 2 then in 2008, in High School Musical 3: our high school years. The wise man’s third opus released on the big screen in October 2008.

In 2009, the young premier played the teenage version of Matthew Perry in comedy for 17 years, before turning to a more dramatic register with the title role of Charlie’s Secret, in which he played a cemetery keeper haunted by his ghosts, alongside Kim Basinger.
After starring in two romances ( Happy New Year and The Lucky One ), the actor finds a golden role via Paperboy, an original thriller set in the dampness of Florida at the end of the 1960s. After this remarkable performance, Zac Efron continued with the comedy Our Worst Neighbors which, given its success in theatres (more than $ 270 million in the world), resulted in a sequel in 2016.
Subscribed to the roles of step-kids in crazy comedies where party and pretty girls are the order of the day, the actor plays a DJ in We Are Your Friends, the grandson of an unleashed Robert De Niro in Dirty Grandpa and again a king of Debauchery in Intouchables. In 2017, Zac Efron will once again show his athletic body as he will be the lifeguard Matt Brody in Baywatch, a film adaptation of the cult series worn by David Hasselhoff.
