So many feelings! During the 10-year ‘High School Musical’ reunion special, fans were gifted Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron’s original audition. In short, it’s amazing. Click to WATCH!
Troy and Gabriella forever! Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron’s original audition for the High School Musical roles that made them famous is amazing. The never-before-seen tape was revealed on the Jan. 20 reunion special. We’re just going to say it — they had chemistry from the beginning!
In the audition, Vanessa and Zac, as Gabriella and Troy, are seen talking about what it feels like to sing with each other. “Remember in kindergarten, how you’d meet a kid and know absolutely nothing about them and then 10 seconds later, you’re playing like you’re best friends, because you didn’t have to be anything but yourself?” Vanessa asks Zac. “Singing with you felt like that.”
Monique Coleman, who played Taylor, tells Vanessa, “You are so sweet and beautiful and perfect.” Zac and Vanessa were so little! They’ve grown up so much! Also, there was clearly a spark between them at the audition. As we all know, Vanessa and Zac ended up dating from 2005 to 2010.
Most of the original cast, sans Zac, reunited for the Disney Channel TV special. During the reunion, the cast revealed major secrets, including Ashley Tisdale had zero dancing experience when she took on the role of Sharpay! Gasp!
Zac didn’t appear with the rest of the cast on the TV special, but he still thanked fans in a taped bit for their support. After the success of High School Musical, two sequels were released. Maybe in a few years, High School Musical will come back for the Wildcats’ high school reunion! Yes, please!
