Charlie St Cloud, UK Premiere

Story by Jack Foley

A DAPPER looking Zac Efron wowed his fans at the UK premiere of his latest movie, Charlie St Cloud, in London’s Leicester Square on Thursday (September 16, 2010).

The former High School Musical star sported a beard as he signed autographs and posed for photos with fans, before also taking questions from the red carpet press.

The actor opted to drop out of the planned Footloose remake to appear in Charlie St Cloud, which follows a young man who is torn between his bond with his late brother and the girl he loves.

And speaking to the Daily Mail at the premiere, Efron said that he hoped the role would provide a springboard for him to play more mature characters in the future.

He commented: “It’s the first dramatic thing I’ve been in, the first dramatic character that I’ve played and I took it personally, I wanted it to come through… I hope it serves as a memorable transition into older, more complex characters.”

Charlie St Cloud opens in UK cinemas on October 8.
