LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The class of “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” is out. The gang has finished filming the beloved Disney film series, and according to star Ashley Tisdale, the last day on set was highly emotional.
Tisdale, who has played spoiled Sharpay Evans since the first film, said the group, which also includes Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron and Corbin Blue, thought they’d be able to shoot their final moments in a carefree fashion.
“We went into the last day thinking, ‘It’ll all be fine ‘cause we’re all really good friends and we’re so close,’” Tisdale recounted to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush for an interview airing on “The Billy Bush Show” tonight. “It wasn’t even the last scene — we couldn’t even get through it. We were crying and just so emotional over the whole thing.”
The cast has grown up and on to fame that includes recording contracts and jumps to the big screen — including “HSM 3,” which will be released in theaters — since the series started on the Disney channel. Though the stars remain friends, letting go was tough.
“We’re so attached to each other,” Tisdale explained “We’ve had such fun doing these movies…. It’s like working with your best friends all the time. It’s definitely something that’s tough to leave and say goodbye to.”
And as Tisdale added, they won’t be back.
“I heard they’re going to do a ‘High School Musical 4,’ but we have nothing to do with it,” she said. “I think we’re all doing other projects and moving on.”
