CHARLIE ST. CLOUD

Nurturing an impressive body of work that en compasses film and television, ZAC EFRON (Charlie St. Cloud) is one of Hollywood's most promising talents as his career continues to evolve with exciting and challenging projects. Efron has received ShoWest's Breakthrough Performer of the Year Award, MTV Movie Awards for Breakthrough Performance (2008) and Best Male Performance (2009), and multiple Teen Choice and Kids' Choice Awards.

Last year, Efron starred in two very different films. He starred in the Warner Bros. film 17 Again, a Big-like dramedy in which a 36-year-old man, in need of a major life do-over, wakes up in the body of a high-school senior. The film opened No. 1 at the box office and also starred Matthew Perry and Leslie Mann. He also starred in the Richard Linklater film Me and Orson Welles, an adaptation of the period coming-of-age novel by Robert Kaplow. Efron portrayed a high-school student who happens upon the yet-to-open Mercury Theatre and is then noticed by Orson Welles. Efron starred in the film alongside Ben Chaplin and Claire Danes, and it debuted to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Efron also starred in the Disney feature film High School Musical 3: Senior Year, the third installment of the extremely successful High School Musical franchise. HSM3 set a box-office record with the highest-grossing opening weekend total for a musical. He also starred alongside an all-star cast in the box-office smash summer film Hairspray, about an all-white American Bandstand-style television show that gets a soul infusion. The film won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble and the cast was also nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for its impressive work on the film.

Segueing effortlessly between the big and small screen, Efron quickly garnered attention and became the breakout star of the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel phenomenon High School Musical. Efron reprised his role as Troy Bolton, the head of the basketball team, in High School Musical 2, which broke cable television records by garnering 17.5 million viewers. His other television credits include a recurring role on The WB series Summerland and guest-starring roles on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, ER, The Guardian and CSI: Miami.

Additionally, Efron starred on stage in the musical Gypsy and has appeared in productions of Peter Pan, Mame, Little Shop of Horrors and The Music Man. A native of Northern California, Efron currently resides in Los Angeles. He recently started his own production shingle and has several feature film projects in development.
