Ashley and Vanessa sit down with Jamaal Finkley to discuss "Senior Year" and what it took to make High School Musical a memorable event.
VANESSA HUDGENS (Gabriella Montez) is a promising
young actress and recording artist.
She appears in the music-driven, inspirational fish-out-of-water
story Bandslam to be released in early 2009. Starring alongside

school battle-of-the-bands competition.

theatre. Early roles in such productions as Evita, Carousel, The
Wizard of Oz, The King & I, The Music Man, Cinderella and

Thunderbirds, and was a recurring guest star on Disney Channels The Suite Life of Zach

Robbery Homicide Division.
But it was Hudgenss role in Disney Channels breakaway sensation High School Musical
and its follow-up High School Musical 2 that has garnered her much praise and attention.

and R&B styles—and toured with the Cheetah Girls, followed by a sold-out 42-date arena
concert tour of High School Musical: The Concert. In July 2008, Hudgens released her
second album IDENTIFY for Hollywood Records, followed by a two-month concert tour in
the Unites States.
