Vanessa Hudgen Brief History

While Vanessa Hudgens has blossomed in the public after a start with Disney, her fame exploded after this catchy show hit the airwaves.

After her success in 2006, she’s guest-starred and starred on a plethora of television shows and movies, but nothing that catapulted her to fame like some of her fellow Disney child stars.

She captured promotional sponsorships with big names like Sears, Neutrogena, Old Navy, and Kohls.

She’s a busy actress, with a continual string of jobs, but her biggest claim to fame is the series of High School Musical movies. She’s got a lot of career in front of her when it comes to acting, but as for her singing career, that moment has passed.

She put out two albums at the height of her fame with Hollywood Record back in 2006 and 2008. Hollywood Record is a division of Disney Music.

Raised in California, she comes from a family of musicians (her grandparents), while her parents held jobs in an office, and as a firefighter.

She also had success doing live renditions of Grease and Rent that was broadcast as a special television event. For many years after High School Musical, the paparazzi splashed magazines with pictures of her with her boyfriend, Zac Efron. The couple parted ways in 2010. She spent another 9 years in a relationship with Austin Butler.
