Watch the 'High School Musical' Cast Reunite on 'GMA' Without Zac Efron (Video)

The cast of High School Musical reminisces over memories from filming during a Good Morning America interview that aired on Tuesday (January 19) from Los Angeles.

Cast members Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Monique Coleman, Corbin Bleu, and Lucas Grabeel all participated, while Zac Efron couldn’t be there due to a scheduling conflict.

He did, however, send in a video saying, “This is only 10 years – let’s have a billion more! I love you guys!”

The cast is gearing up for a special rebroadcast that will air on the original airdate, January 20, with new footage of the cast reuniting.

“At one point it literally felt like we were The Beatles,” Vanessa told GMA. recalls “Now it’s like we can go to the coffee store and we’re completely left alone (laughs).”

    “No ones gone of the reel” bitch please, dont pretend you dont know zac is a coke head. And only reason he didnt show up was because hes scared to face vanessa

  • Jenny from the flop

    He may be more famous but his career is flopping harder then theirs. Now he must rely on doing shirtless scenes for rogan’s movies. Vanessa is the most succesful one. She has done all type of movies and now she is doing broadway as well, shes a real actress.

    Lovely to see them together again. It too bad all we got was a low quality, two second insincere message filmed by what it looks like a camera phone by his highness from his balcony at home. The excuse was a lie, (there was no press for Dirty Grandpa). He should just man up and not act like he is grateful, or friends since he clearly wants nothing to do with any of them or the past films. When he gives interviews and lies about wanting a reunion, then when it comes down to it he doesn’t . He let down some fans that will get over it , but he should have realized it would have done wonders for his career and some good positive PR instead of all the negativity this and even worse his ignorant , egotistical Tweet he did yesterday. I know people are blaming the GF since she “helps” but he is to blame for letting her make him seem like nothing but a insensitive arrogant jerk. Also Zac look in the mirror you are a white privileged man who knows nothing of the struggles of MLK and what he and others fought for. He preached equality for all people using peace and intelligence would never have approved of the blacks fists emoji you are pushing, while riding in your very expensive car from your millions of dollars home.
    Seriously if you are not posting this yourself , fire the person who is since they are ruining your career. You are making it so hard to be your fan . There s no humility real “or even acting fake” from you any more. I realize you have become a huge mega star but the ones that go the distance and have long careers are the ones who remain humble and know where they came from and are truly grateful and most of all never forget where they came from .

    Update: Still leaving my comments up , but at least he or someone told him to apologize for the remarks. Never too late to own your mistakes, just too bad if Zac isn’t the one who initially wrote them that he had to take the heat for it . Again hope he fires that person (Gf) and gets his career back into gear. This is the stuff that doesn’t go away and people don’t go back to read the apology. That being said this damage control is just in time for the film opening this weekend.

  • OK

    So happy to see you posting again a and I have to say it is one of our best.
    I agree with everything you say her on both issues. The lies and arrogance he shows by missing the “HSM” reunion and the insensitivity on his “MLK” post.
    This is just not the Zac we used to know and love.
    I do believe 100% that Zac did not do the “MLK” post but his PR girlfriend did in his name
    I’m happy to see he apologized for the “MLK post but I think for some it is way too little and way too late.
    Once again nice seeing you posting.

    LOL today I’m posting because I couldn’t stand to keep quiet. The boy in the bubble needs a huge reality check. Obviously the people around live in that bubble as well because, I know who posted but what world do they live in? For a person who proclaims to have an education to be envied, and is a person of color they are clueless about what is
    offensive and tasteless. Also does she not see her BF is a white man of wealth and privilege? I am so used to her arrogance, and lack of class with her own socials, but now that she has her hands on Zac’s (full force , so it seems) she is truly crossing the line , to the point of his career being damaged. Seriously he has to do something now, the apology is a great start but how humiliating and embarrassing it has to be. His whole future and career is a stake if he doesn’t get it together soon and sadly his own production company which provides jobs for people he does care about is in dire straits. It will be interesting to watch what happens. He took the heat on this and let’s hope a huge lesson was learned and the fakery will stop.

    Excellent post. Unfortunately, these behaviors of his have been going on for years. He is such a Jekyll and Hyde, saying one thing but doing another. Doing a few hours of PR Sunday morning when this was filmed would not have killed him or his precious career of terribly useless movies. At least the current crop is. Neighbors 2, Dirty Grandpa, Baywatch….seriously. I have been disappointed in him for years, and he’s certainly not doing anything to “right the ship”. He needs to grow up, take control of his life, and get rid of the pointless mooches in his life. He is not going in a good direction, even if going from one project to another. He is a mess. I wish I could shake some sense into him. The 5 HSM stars above have got it all together, and have turned into wonderful people. Zac, not so much. So much potential, but not anywhere near what he could be. What a waste.

  • Maria

    It’s almost as if she sees the proverbial writing on the wall, and is going to make him miserable before she is out of her job of faux GF.

  • IMO

    I agree 10000% the fakery deceit and flat out lies are what gets him or anyone into trouble. If he only could be honest then he wouldn’t get all the Backlash. Remember Vanessa when asked said no more HSM , it’s done and there is no where to go anymore, that she will always love the memories and the people but they have all moved on? Well something to that effect , anyway it was pure honesty and if he would only have done that instead of giving fans hope the little video would have been enough.

  • IMO

    Let’s hope this was the wake up call needed to at the very least get her out of his career and Socials. As if the film DG wasn’t in enough jeopardy, this was the icing on the cake to ensure failure or less seats filled to be sure.

  • Maria

    I won’t comment on the drug issues, but I do believe he is afraid to face Vanessa as well. Losing her was a turning point for him in many ways; some say it started his career, but it also sent him spiraling into the seedy world of Hollywood and it’s pitfalls. He should have manned up and faced her, because it would have been easier with those friends around them. He really is a bonehead.

  • Maria

    I truly hope his words were sincere, and not motivated by concern over the box office of a pointless movie.

  • IMO

    Yeah , it would have been hard for her as well but she showed total class on Kelly and Michael. Everyone would have won , but especially Zac since he is the one with the most to lose.

  • IMO

    I think I’m jaded since I don’t trust the motivation and sincerity completely, but I will give the benefit of a doubt.

  • Maria

    So true, IMO. She adored him and hoped for more with him. He wasn’t at that point in his life, but he lost something he hasn’t been able to find with anyone else. I think they would have had lots of support if they had just gotten this meeting over with. It would have done wonders for his image as well.

  • IMO

    Agree so much and you said it perfectly.

  • Maria

    I always admire honesty and being genuine, instead of deceit, fake PR GF’s, and allowing others to dictate his life. What has it gotten him? He is not getting roles in quality films, has had a series of fake GF’s, friends who have not been there for him, and allows his questionable team to run his life. It’s all so shocking to me, because he certainly “talked the talk” years ago, of not liking to party, being a one woman man, laughing at the Matthew McConaugheys taking their shirts off, and wanting to be Leo Dicaprio. What happened to THAT guy??

  • Maria

    Let’s hope it is a wake up call……

  • IMO

    Exactly , but God gave of the gift of choice and his path could have been so different if he had chosen more wisely. There is always tomorrow and forgiveness of any mistakes we make. But our choices can have consequences that dictate the outcome and we have to work twice as hard to repair the damage that has been done. He can turn this all around but he needs to be sincere, and most of all honest with himself to make the change. That is what we have all been waiting for and until that happens he will remain a lost boy.

  • IMO

    yes :)

  • Maria

    I so agree. One of his problems, is that he has lost control of his life; he does stupid things, his team has to keep covering up, then he does other stupid things, and the damage control goes on. He has dug himself in so deep, and it will take monumental changes to dig himself out of the mess. But he has to want to make those changes, and I don’t see that happening anytime soon. When he and Vanessa broke up, I remember Vanessa’s comment about wanting to be with someone who is true to himself. She saw what was happening with him long ago, and he is clearly still in denial. I guess I just don’t understand a guy, who used to have a good head on his shoulders, be so lost at nearly 30.

  • Maria

    Ahh, but all he had to do was go on Ellen and twerk and give her a lap dance. That will take care of everything, won’t it? He is just making me sick these days.

  • gabrielle
