Was Zendaya a High School Musical Fan? Star Dishes on Her and Zac Efron’s Shared Disney Past

Zac Efron has found a new Gabriella Montez to his Troy Bolton in Zendaya

In case you haven’t heard, Zac and Zendaya will play love interests in the upcoming musical biopicThe Greatest Showman. Also starring, Hugh Jackmanand Michelle Williams, the film follows the true story of iconic Barnum & Bailey founder P.T. Barnum (Jackman.) 

The chemistry between Efron and Zendaya is on fire in the trailer, but what does the talented actress think of the pair’s shared Disney past? The 20-year-old got her start in show biz opposite Bella Thorne on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up, and Efron—of course—has High School Musical to thank for much of his success.

When asked if she was a fan of the HSM Wildcats, Zendaya told E! News’ Zuri Hall at the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, “I mean everybody was, come on now.”

Solid answer, Z. 

In The Greatest Showman, the brunette beauty portrays a trapeze artist, which Zendaya described as a particularly tough character trait she trained for. 

“It was amazing,” Zendaya dished. “I spent months trapeze training, which is not something I said or thought I could do. So there you go! You can see that I did it. I did as much as I could and it was so much fun. I learned different things that I could actually do and take it there.”

Safe to say we can’t wait to see Zendaya shine! Spider-Man Homecoming hits theaters July 7 while The Greatest Showman arrives Christmas Day.
