Zac Efron is still melting hearts worldwide…even though in an interview he could not recognize “Breaking Free”. (WHAT HAPPENED TO “ONCE A WILDCAT, ALWAYS A WILDCAT?!”) Following HSM, Zac appeared in the movie musical Hairspray, comedy hit Neighbors, and a bunch of other movies where his character description basically was “ridiculously attractive guy who should take his shirt off at some point in the film”. You can catch Zac in the upcoming film Dirty Grandpa which is sure to be hysterical.

2.Vanessa Hudgens

Age: 26
Corbin got engaged to his girlfriend in Disney World claiming Disney holds a very special place in his heart (cue the tears). He made two albums with Hollywood Records…do we even need to mention the pure perfection of “Push It To The Limit”. Corbin had a run on Broadway in the musical In The Heights earning him rave reviews. You can see him in the recently released film To Write Love On Her Arms (which actually was shot in 2011).

5. Lucas Grabeel

After HSM, Grabeel teamed up with Drew Seely (aka the guy who sang in Zac’s place for the first film and did the HSM tour) to created a web series “I Kissed a Vampire”, a rock musical about (you guessed it) vampires. Since 2011 Lucas has been in the acclaimed ABC Family (owned by Disney) series “Switched at Birth” where he plays Toby. He provides his voice to the Disney Junior show “Sheriff Callie’s Wild West” as Deputy Peck, too. This coming year he will be part of a new show for Disney’s rival network Nickelodeon, “Pinky Malinky”. Although none of these roles are as fab as Ryan Evans, he still kills it each time.
