Zac kick-started his acting career guest-starring in hit American TV shows such as E.R, CSI: Miami and Disney channel's The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. He then went on to continue his Disney career as teenage sweetheart Troy Bolton in the High School Musical franchise, with the first in the trilogy becoming the most watched Disney programme in history.

The Rolling Stone cover star continued showing-off his singing talents in a film adaption of the Broadway musical Hairspray in 2007. Playing golden boy Link Larken, Zac joined a star-studded cast including John Travolta, Christopher Walken and Queen Latifah and went on to win an MTV Award for Best Male Breakthrough Performance in the role.

In order to avoid type-casting, in 2009 Zac began branching out from musicals. He starred alongside Matthew Perry in coming-of-age film 17 again and in 2012 he played the role of an ex- marine in The Lucky One, a film based on Nicholas Spark's best-selling novel.
