During a Wednesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the actress joked about her tendency to take high school roles ("I never graduate!") and opened up about her upcoming role as Betty Rizzo in the live telecast of the famous film.

Vanessa Hudgens' head is still in the game.
The actress recently reunited with her High School Musical castmates to film a Disney Channel special commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the release of 2006 original movie.
"I think the lesson that I would tell myself when we did the movie would be to just soak in every moment and treasure it because it went by so fast," Hudgens says in the special, which is highlighted exclusively in the current issue of PEOPLE. "Looking back at it, there are things that I remember, but I wish ... I could have taken it in more, because it was so special."
