Efron Sticks To Acting

Teen heart-throb ZAC EFRON has dismissed speculation he is planning to follow in the footsteps of his HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL co-stars by recording an album, declaring he wants to focus on acting. Efron thrilled audiences with his singing and dancing in both High School Musical movies and Hairspray, but he is determined to prove himself as a serious actor. He says, "A lot of people expect me to do singing, but when I started in this business I really wanted to be an actor. Rather selfishly, I chose roles that I would love to watch on screen. I want to do roles with more substance and to show I can change to different characters. Singing is something I'm prepared to do as part a movie, but not as a career. It's really the acting for me." Efron missed out of the High School Musical concert tour last year (06) because he was filming Hairspray in Canada, but insists he won't be gracing the stage if his castmates do another tour following the release of High School Musical 2 later this month (17Aug07). He adds, "I wouldn't want to tour. I mean I'd love the performing aspect of it, but I want to focus on acting."
