"For me, it was still coming relatively close off of High School Musical. … That’s the thing about the show, it’s a wonderful opportunity to promote and a wonderful opportunity to show people who you are. … I really wanted to be able to grow and just transform myself as an artist and as a person first. I wanted to be able to go off and do things like I did with Broadway and doing all these movies where I’m playing all these sort of crazy characters and being able to do the soap [ONE LIFE TO LIVE] — all these projects. I’m working as a producer and establishing my business."
