Happy birthday Vanessa Hudgens! As the American actress and singer celebrates turning 26, HELLO! Online takes a look at what the stars have in store for Vanessa, and you…

This is what Vanessa, who is a Sagittarius, can be expecting today:

Should you experiment? Or do you need to play safe? How can you answer both these questions with a yes? It's a matter of 'either/or', surely. Experiments are, by definition, risky. And there's nothing experimental about following a tried and tested formula. So something has to give. Why are you reluctant to step outside your emotional comfort zone? Isn't a little bit of discomfort a stimulating and potentially rewarding thing to experience? You deserve the best life has to offer. The way to get it is to be a little bolder.

Following her appearance on the series, she guest-starred in several television programmes and theatre productions. The brunette beauty had her major breakout in the industry when she was awarded the lead role of Gabriella Montez in the High School Musical franchise, with hit song Breaking Free, a duet with Zac Efron, peaking at number 4 on the US Billboard chart. The Disney Channel star went on to win three Teen Choice and one Kids Choice award for her work in the role.

In 2007 Vanessa began recording her first studio album V and later starred as the lead in film BandSlam, Beastly and James Franco film Spring Breakers in 2011.
