ZAC EFRON (Mike O'Donnell) is one of Hollywood's most versatile talents with an already impressive body of work that encompasses both film and television. Efron previously worked with director Adam Shankman when he starred as the lovable Link Larkin in 2007's smash hit movie musical "Hairspray.” As part of the all-star cast, he shared in a Critics Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble, the 2007 Hollywood Film Festival Award for Ensemble of the Year, and was honored with a Screen Actors Guild Award® nomination for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast. In addition, Efron won an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Performance.

Efron co-starred with Ben Chaplin and Claire Danes in Richard Linklater's "Me and Orson Welles,” an adaptation of the period coming-of-age novel by Robert Kaplow. Efron portrays a high school student who happens upon the yet-to-open Mercury Theatre and is then noticed by Orson Welles. The film premiered to rave reviews at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.

Most recently, he starred in Kenny Ortega's "High School Musical 3: Senior Year,” which set a box office record for the highest grossing opening weekend for a musical. Efron played the role of basketball team captain Troy Bolton, the role he originated on the small screen in the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel phenomenon "High School Musical.”

Efron first garnered attention in 2006 as the star of the original "High School Musical,” for which he won the Teen Choice Award for Breakout Star. He returned to the role of Troy Bolton in "High School Musical 2,” which broke cable TV records with 17.5 million viewers.

Efron's additional television credits include a role on the WB series "Summerland” and guest-starring roles on such shows as "ER,” "The Guardian,” "CSI: Miami” and "NCIS.”
