Zac Efron is Every Bit as Great as You Hope

The interview has to wait until the week the movie opens, but I have to post this right now.

Zac Efron is one of the most gracious, considerate, and all-around classy performers I have ever interviewed. Stay tuned for the details.

    I want to agree with the lady above! I worked with Zac on ‘Me and Orson Welles’ and found him to be a very polite, focused and down to earth guy. I hope he has tons of success with the film and a long and satisfying career.

    Thanks so much, Mr. McEvoy! I am a fan of the book and was really happy to see it translated to screen so well. And it was a pleasure to meet Zac, Claire Danes, and Richard Linklater. I’m looking forward to posting the interview. I really appreciate your taking the time to write.

    I was at this interview with you (the one doing it for her campus newspaper) and I completely agree! I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed how awesome he was – I’m doing a feature-type piece on the Zac-specific part of the interview for my paper! (Namely what it’s like to interview someone you adore). Such a great interview and day. :)

    It was a pleasure to meet you, Caitlin! Please send me the link to your piece so I can include it in my write-up.
