Zac Efron wants his roles to “help people through challenges they face in thier lives”

HollywoodNews.com: ‘High School Musical’ star Zac Efron wants to make films which tackle serious issues. The 22-year-old doesn’t want to make movies just for fun. Instead he wants his acting career to have some relevance.

The teen heartthrob admits this is the reason he took his role in new film ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ and didn’t just do another musical. He told MTV News: “What do the fans want to see? I could do another musical? I could stick to my guns and try to do more of that.”

Efron added: “Is that really what the fans want to see? I mean everyone is like, ‘how can you make that transition? How are you going to get the fans to follow you into this new kind of stuff?'”

Zac sees it as his responsibility to stay relevant for his fans by making movies about life experiences. The ’17 Again’ star said: “The only way that I know how to do that is to stay a little bit ahead of the audience. Experience life, make movies about those experiences, and by the time the audience catches up, and maybe realizes that life isn’t always like ‘High School Musical,’ maybe they will have a movie that helps them through that next challenge that they face in life.”
