From acting on the musical television film to playing a reel-life infamous serial killer, Zac Efron has transmuted from the sensational teen tag he wore at the beginning of his career.
Still, with all the gossip that comes along the fame, you might have missed on the facts associated with Zachary David Alexander Efron.
Here are the seven facts about the actor:
7. Zac Efron's Celebrity Crush Was Tyra Banks
When it came to crushing on a celebrity, Zac was way ahead on the train from an early age.
In Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actor revealed how he used to sneak on his mother, stealing the Victoria Secret Model magazine just to cut the pictures of 'Supermodel of the Year' award recipient Tyra Banks. And, all of that trouble to keep her picture on the wall of his bedroom.
6. No One Swiped Right for Zac on Tinder
The dating app used by people worldwide was a bit of bad luck for Zac. The app which utilizes the swipe feature left Zachery feeling distressed as no one swiped right for him; swiping right would indicate an anonymous person is interested in you.
In an interview with the British magazine 'The Times', Zefron said dating is something he will never be able to do. But it turns out the people in the Tinder thought his account was fake, so they never swiped right for him.
5. The Singing Voice You Heard of the Character Zac Efron Played in "High School Musical" Was Never His
The High School Musical series made Zac Efron the teen sensation. He played the male protagonist Troy Bolton along with Vanessa Hudgens.
But all the high note singing voice we heard from Troy was never sung by Zac Efron. Infact, Drew Seeley's voice blended with Zac Efron is what we heard and assumed it to be of Troy.
In addition to this, Drew also filled in for Zac in some of the tours of High School Musical.
4. Zachery Cut One Side of his Eyebrow, Accidentally!

In the game of Zac or Smack as True or False, Ellen asked if Zac had once cut his eyebrow, and the answer was Zac.
Though the New Year's Eve actor was reluctant to share the details of the 'accident' on the Ellen DeGeneres show, he revealed the incident about cutting his eyebrow. And, the next day, he said, he went on to receive the Principal Gold Medal award in the school, with no eyebrow on one side of his face.
3. Tired of the Musical or High School Romance Genre, Zac Chose to Stare in the Movie '17 again'
If you are au courant with the well-established actor's movie genre pattern, you might not find it unusual to see actors grabbing the role of movies in the same genre as the one that made them achieve stardom.
Efron's renown rose from High School Musical series, and he remained typecast for a long time in his career.
Frustrated, Zac was happy to step out from the category and join the cast of 17 Again. Since he was unfamiliar with the role of father, he took the job as challenging and risky.
2. Zac Got Hospitalized When Filming for the Series "Killing Zac Efron"

He made a recovery without any serious issue as the management took him to the St. Andrew's War Memorial Hospital in Australia.
Zac was also able to fly back home on Christmas Eve and celebrate the festival with his family.
The Baywatch star expressed his gratitude to his fans through a posted message on Instagram for all the love and concern he received throughout his recovery.
