It’s hard to film underwater. It really is tricky. You don’t have goggles, so you can’t see anything. You don’t know where you’re swimming to. Everything’s blurry.
Working out is my biggest hobby. It’s my Zen hour. I just zone out.
Every time I go to big events, it’s a trip. I feel like that kid who shouldn’t really be there.
I’ve been doing musical theater since I was a kid. And look for a CD from me in the future. I want to write all the songs!
I don’t know if I believe in love at first sight, but of course I believe in two people having chemistry right away. A girl should be really easy to talk to. When I lose track of time because we’ve been talking, I think that’s really fun.
I can’t explain to you what it’s like to be a heartthrob. I don’t think I am a heartthrob.
In sixth grade, my basketball team made it to the league championships. In double overtime, with three seconds left, I rebounded the ball and passed it – to the wrong team! They scored at the buzzer and we lost the game. To this day, I still have nightmares!
I was influenced when I was younger by the cartoon movies that Disney put out, like Cinderella and what not. I watched those movies over and over when I was younger and the music is ingrained into my head. Nowadays, I’m still humming the tunes. It taught me the fundamentals.
As far as looking at myself on screen, I tend to pick out every single flaw that I could have or should have done better. I’m more of a cringer at first and when it is years down the road and out of my way, I can actually appreciate it somehow.
I’m a guy, but I’m not afraid to cry. Not all of the time. But when I’m watching a movie, I’ll sometimes shed a tear, especially ‘Moulin Rouge’.
I grew up being into sports and I wasn’t trained to move my body in the right way for dancing. I’m the last one to get any moves correct. In rehearsals it’s always, ‘OK, one more take for Zac.’
I try to be green as much as I can and it’s hard. I feel like I’m never doing enough. […] For me as an actor, there’s only so many things I can do, and this is a way, through a film, to teach and hopefully get the message out to young kids.
