He began acting professionally in the early 2000s and became known with his lead roles in the Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical, the WB series Summerland, and the 2007 film version of the Broadway musical Hairspray. Efron has since starred in the films 17 Again, Me and Orson Welles, Charlie St. Cloud, New Year's Eve, The Lucky One and The Lorax (voice only). In 2007, Rolling Stone declared him the "poster boy for tweenyboppers" and featured him in their late August 2007 issue. Efron was born in San Luis Obispo, California, and later moved to Arroyo Grande, California. His father, David Efron, is an electrical engineer at a power station, and his mother, Starla Baskett, is a former secretary who worked at the same power plant. Efron has a younger brother, Dylan, and had, as he has described it, a "normal childhood" in a middle class family. He is an agnostic, having never been religious. His surname, "Efron" (עפרון), means "lark" in Hebrew (his paternal grandfather was Jewish). Efron has said that he would "flip out" if he got a "B" and not an "A" in school, and has also
