“Extra’s” Terri Seymour sat down with Zac Efron and Lily Collins as they promoted their new film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”
Efron also commented on the reboot of “High School Musical,” which catapulted his career nearly 10 years ago.
When asked if he would make a cameo on the new TV series, he said, “Absolutely… I don’t see why not.”
He added, “I’m not, like, committing to it — I didn't know there was [a series]." Still, he observed, "That message still resonates to this day.”
Hopefully Zac isn't just Troy-ing with our emotions!
In “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” Efron portrays infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, who he believes “changed the world." He also cautioned, "It’s not what’d you expect.”
Lily chimed in, “It takes a deeper dive, it really does.”
Efron emphasized that the movie — which is told from the point of view of Bundy's girlfriend Liz Kendall — doesn’t glorify the killings of Bundy, adding, “This was an examination of who these people were, about their love story, and I thought that's really interesting.”
Lily, who plays Liz, agreed, adding, “The thing is this relationship… it's really real, there was very real love. She was told by many people she should be wary. She was only shown one side of him… I think a lot of people male or female can relate to Liz in that sense.”
Netflix will release "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" May 3.
