Tropes applying to Zac
- Ascended Meme: Possibly. Apparently he's in talks to be in the American adaptation of Death Note.
- Now rumor has it that he turned down the part citing the need to cast Asian actors for the Asian characters, avoiding a Race Lift. Which is surprisingly noble for someone whose public image was once that of a vapid pretty boy.
- Blue Eyes: Just look at them!
- Closet Geek: See One of Us. He's had to play down some of his nerdish tendencies since the success of High School Musical.
- He's gone on record stating that he's happy now that he's done with his Disney phase and can drop all pretense and be a nerd publicly.
- Cool Car: Averted for a long time, it wasn't until after HSM 3 that he replaced the Oldsmobile Alero he had gotten from his grandfather with a typically-Hollywood Cool Car.
- One of Us: He's confessed to being hopelessly addicted to World of Warcraft and lobbied for the role of Link in Hairspray because he was such a fan of the musical despite it being almost as far from High School Musical as you can get. He also reads several manga, including Death Note. Hmm...
- Pretty Boy
