Happy birthday Monique Coleman! The actress is turning 39 years old on Wednesday, November 13, and it’s pretty shocking how fast has time has flown by! She was only 25 when she starred in the first High School Musical, and it’s seriously hard to believe that it’s already been more than 13 years since the flick premiered!
The Disney Channel Original Movie, which also starred Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and more, aired on January 20, 2006, and it instantly became a fan favorite. It was all about a popular basketball player named Troy Bolton who fell for a nerdy girl named Gabriella Montez, and their love story stole the hearts of millions of viewers all around the world! The film was definitely a classic, and every time fans rewatch it they’re hit with a major wave of nostalgia.
But what have the cast members been up to since the movie? Well, some of the stars continued to act and went on to land a ton of major roles, while others disappeared from Hollywood altogether and started families of their own! But either way, they’ve all certainly grown a lot over the years.
