Zac Efron is Parade magazine’s July 25th cover guy and as the 22 year old is currently in NYC gearing up for Charlie St. Cloud interviews, I thought I’d slip a little Efron excerpt into your day:
What attracted him to such a sobering role.
“Every once in awhile, you read a script and you get that special feeling in your gut. I was touched by what the character, Charlie, goes through, and I thought it was a story worth sharing. And the fact that I have a little brother myself gave it a lot of resonance.”
He was studying hard for his Advanced Placement classes just a few short years ago.
“Looking back at that AP stuff now, we probably were the nerds. But that’s okay — they’re always the coolest people.”
Still a student at heart.
“I start to think, ‘Am I missing out on something?’ I’m not in school at the moment, so I tend to overcompensate by trying to learn as much as I can about everything else, and by tackling life full-on. I’m just soaking up everything I can. I’d like to see the whole world.”
Transitioning from the ultra popular Disney teen “Troy” in the High School Musical series, Efron has been making some smart moves with the roles he’s choosing. Charlie St. Cloud, which opens in theaters July 30th, sees Efron adding to his dramatic role resume as he did with Me and Orson Wells. He has a lot of future work on his plate with his newly formed production company, Ninjas Runnin’ Wild and Charlie should do well at the box office.
