Zac Efron talks about his close connection to the Philippines


100112-Zac_main.jpgKamakailan ay nanggaling dito sa Pilipinas ang Hollywood star na si Zac Efron para sa endorsement ng isang local clothing brand, pero bukod dito ay in-enjoy din ni Zac kanyang maiksing panahon sa pagbisita sa ipinagmamalaking tourist attractions sa bansa. Sa exclusive interview ni Boy Abunda sa aktor na ipinalabas sa The Buzz, ibinahagi ni Zac kung saan nanggagaling ang curiosity niya tungkol sa Pilipinas. 

“My dad’s friend since childhood, his family is Pinoy. He invited my dad to go to the Philippines with his family and he came home with some of the most amazing stories about what he had seen there and experienced,” kuwento ng American actor. “And I wanted to do that also. I want to see the world, so the Philippines is really where that seed was planted for me and so I couldn’t believe now the tables have turned, I’m bringing him (to the Philippines).” 

Ang specific place na dinalaw ni Zac ay ang Misibis at nag-check in sa isang exclusive resort doon. “Unreal. It was fantastic,” paglalarawan niya. “I would definitely come back.” 

Naging kilala si Zac sa sikat na sikat na film trilogy na High School Musical kung saan ginampanan niya ang role ni Troy Button. At pag-amin niya, ang role na iyon ang isa sa mga malaki ang epekto sa kanya bilang aktor at tao. “One of the most profound in my life for what it stood for. High School Musical is being yourself, despite what anybody thinks of it. Being free. The relationships I had with my friends that we built over that period of time.” 

Kahit na isang international celebrity si Zac, sinabi nito kay Boy na hindi siya masasanay sa kanyang katanyagan. “Inherently as a person I care lot about what I do. And I think if you care deeply about something, you should never be comfortable. I’m always constantly learning and messing up and learning from my mistakes and taking risks.”
