Zac Efron is an actor and singer who became a fan favorite after starring in High School Musical. As his career progresses, he has continued to take on bigger and better roles.
Many people claim to be his biggest fans, but they are unaware of several facts about him that we’ve discussed below.
8 Things You Didn’t Know About Zac Efron
1. Child Star
High School Music was his big break, but it wasn’t his first foray into the spotlight. He appeared as a child actor on Firefly, ER, and The Guardian. He was also a regular on Summerland, a show starring Lori Loughlin. 
2. Didn’t Sing In First High School Musical
Zac has always been a talented singer, but the first High School Musical film features actor Drew Seeley’s vocals rather than Zac’s. After Zac raised his voice in the second film, everything changed. 
3. He Had Been To Rehab
There are numerous stories like this, but it never ceases to be sad. In 2013, it was reported that Zac had been in rehab for five months due to a major partying problem that was interfering with his work. 
4. Enjoys Fixing Cars
The good news is that our boy Zac enjoys doing just that. He inherited two classic cars from his grandfather, a Delorean, and a 1965 Mustang, and he repaired them himself. 
We know Zac can ride a motorcycle after seeing him in the movie New Year’s Eve, where he rides around on a Vespa the entire time, but this wasn’t the case before that movie. He needed to learn for the role, and his teacher turned out to be someone unexpected: Tom Cruise. 
6. He Had Tried Dating App
Yes, the shirtless man of our dreams, Zac Efron, tried the popular dating app Tinder. Zac has stated that dating is difficult for him. 
7. Defer His Enrollment In College
While Zac was a child actor, he was also a student who did quite well. In 2006, he graduated from Arroyo Grande High School and was accepted to the University of Southern California. He decided to defer his enrollment in college to pursue acting instead of going to college like most people.
8. Changed His Phone Number Due To Numerous Calling Of His Fans
It was a rookie error on his part, but when Zac first became famous, his phone number was still publicly available. Fans found his phone number, and he received so many calls from them that he was forced to change his phone number.
