• The HSM alum, 24, plays a photographer in the Sean Penn drama Milk.
HOW WAS WORKING WITH SUCH AN ALL-STAR CAST? Sean Penn, James Franco, Emile Hirsch ... It felt like a dream. One day James says to me, "I saw High School Musical last weekend. It was awesome!" I was like, this is insane.
DID YOU REALLY TAKE PICTURES ON-SET? I did, while the cameras were rolling, so I didn't have to worry about pulling people aside to get a photo. It was great!
DO YOU MISS THE HSM GANG? I was ready for it to end, but it is weird. I have an HSM basketball signed by everybody, and I look at it and say, "Wow, that's no more." It's relief and joy, but it's all good memories.
