Despite his youth, Zac Efron looked like an old pro on the red carpet for the UK premiere of his latest movie, Me & Orson Welles. Wearing a stern expression on his face for the most part, it’s clear to photographers that Efron is doing is doing his best to leave his High School Musical alter ego behind.
As for Zac’s co-star, Claire Danes, she did her best to keep her long, blond locks from getting too windswept in her long, black dress and elegant diamond earrings. Although she seemed to have forgot that black sheer fabric and flashbulbs spells exposed nipples!
Director Richard Linklater expressed his confidence in Efron’s performance in the flick, telling The Wrap,
“He’s a leading man. I think he’s a gifted performer. He can go
toe-to-toe with one of the biggest of the personalities of the 20th
century.” The filmmaker cautions, “Never underestimate him–Orson does
in the movie.” Oh, we never have.
