After having guest spots on various television shows, Zac’s breakthrough role came in 2006 when he played the role of Troy Bolton in the Disney Channel movie High School Musical. Shortly after the movie’s premiere, several of the songs from the film made the Billboard Hot 100, including “Get’cha Head in the Game” and “Breaking Free,” which became the fastest-rising single in the history of Billboard. “Breaking Free” moved from #86 to #4 in two weeks. However, Zac did not sing any of the songs from the film.

Zac’s singing talents were revealed when he portrayed the role of Link Larkin in the movie version of the musical Hairspray. The movie came out July 20, 2007 and made over $202 million in the box office. It also received critical acclaim and earned a 91% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Shortly after the release of Hairspray, Zac reprised his role as Troy in High School Musical 2. The movie came out in August 2007 and soon became the most watched basic cable program in U.S. history with 17.2 million viewers.

Zac would reprise the role a final time in High School Musical 3: Senior Year. The movie was released in theaters on October 24, 2008. Within the first three days of the film’s release, it set the record for the largest opening weekend for a musical film, grossing $50 million in North America and an additional $40 million overseas.

Zac ranked #92 Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list back in 2008, having earned an estimated $5.8 million from 2007 to 2008.


Zac’s next film role would be as Teen Mike in 17 Again. The film was released on April 17, 2009 and made over $136 million in the box office. For his role in the film, Zac was paid $1,000,000. His net worth soon grew to $10 million in April 2009.

Zac would continue to star in several films including Charlie St. Cloud, New Year’s Eve, and The Lorax.

In 2013, Zac reportedly bought a Beverly Hills penthouse worth $4 million.


Zac continued to star in successful films including Neighbors, opposite Seth Rogen.

In May 2015, Zac’s net worth was $18 million.

Unfortunately, not every Zefron movie is a hit. In October 2015, We Are Your Friends grossed an average $758 from each movie theater in its opening weekend, making it the fourth worst debut for a film with a 2,000+ theater average. In spite of its modest box office, the film’s $9.4 million dollar worldwide gross was enough to recoup its $2 million dollar budget and make a small profit.

Zac’s recent film appearance was the movie Dirty Grandpa, opposite Robert De Niro. The movie premiered January 22, 2016.

The actor also has three more films set to be released in 2016 including Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and The Disaster Artist.

These movies will be sure to raise this former high school hunk’s net worth as 2016 continues.


After finishing his work on movies like The Disaster Artist, Efron was able to focus on the comedy film adaptation of Baywatch. The film is currently scheduled to release in May 2017 and will feature a number of other movie stars such as Dwayne Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, and more.

He will also appear in The Greatest Showman, which is slated for release on December 25, 2017. Currently the movie is in post-production.
