The cast of High School Musical will forever be connected to each other, and yes, that includes Zac Efron. While the 31-year-old actor might be a big-time movie star now, his breakout role was as the one and only Troy Bolton, the basketball player who had a song in his heart that needed to break free.

Starring as the leading man in the beloved musical franchise, these movies catapulted Zac into the spotlight and well, to say fans weren’t happy when he missed the first movie’s 10-year reunion special in 2016 Disney Channel hosted was an understatement. Just take a look at this precious cast selfie of our fave Wildcats together again, minus Z.


Nearly perfect if Zac was there! Although he did take to Twitter to let everyone know that he really wanted to be at the reunion, he has nothing but love for his HSM castmates and the fans too, of course.

But what’re his relationships really like with the cast today? Everyone seems to still be friendly with each other, but where does Zac stand? Scroll through the gallery to get all the details on Zac’s friendships with his former castmates.
