Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the High School Musical cast had a super fun virtual reunion while in quarantine much to the excitement of diehard fans of the movies! She was joined by Ashley Tisdale, Monique Coleman, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and even the director, Kenny Ortega!
But wait! Someone is missing from that list!
It is, of course, Zac Effron, who actually played the main character in HSM, Troy Bolton!
As you can imagine, the fans did not miss this notable absence and there were a lot of comments about it!
The former co-stars had a really nice chat via Zoom amid the COVID-19 pandemic and everyone was happy to hang out again, even though they couldn’t do it in person.
Vanessa posted a screengrab and captioned it with: ‘Guess who’s back…’
Similarly, Monique also posted a pic that she captioned: ‘Together….together….[piano, winky face emojis]’ making reference to one of the iconic songs in the movies.
While everyone was excited to see them back together, a lot of people focused on the one missing person – Zac Effron – who also just so happens to also be Vanessa’s ex!
Here are a few of the reactions the posts got from social media users: ‘If anyone needs me I’ll be over here upset at the fact that Zac Efron didn’t show up to the hsm zoom reunion.’ / ‘Wait, why didn’t ZAC come???’ / ‘It isn’t the cast’s fault that @ZacEfron didn’t do that zoom reunion with them. It’s on Zac. He made the decision. They didn’t exclude him. Please shut the hell up now.’
Well, at this point, there is no clear answer as to why Zac did not join his former castmates on this quarantine ‘together but apart’ reunion!
Still, it was nice to see that at least some of them were missing the good old days and felt like hanging out again!
