`Sucker Punch` will detach me from Gabriella: Vanessa Hudgens
London: Hollywood actress Vanessa Hudgens believes her all-action role in the recently released film `Sucker Punch` will allow her to break free of her `High School Musical` past.
The 22-year-old actress who shot to fame playing Gabriella Montez in the hit `High school Musicals` serieshopes to shrug off her past character with the new action film, reported Contactmusic.
The `Bandslam` star plays `Blondie` in the new asylum-set fantasy action film and is confident the gun-toting part will allow people to see her as more than just `Gabriella` from the Disney trilogy.
The film which also stars Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone and Jamie Chung, hit the theatres this Friday and has the young starlet ditching her trademark brunette locks for blonde ones and doing a lot of action.
"She`s a really fun character. She is in this crazy world as well. She starts out as kind of a follower, but it`s fun... because, like the blonde hair, it`s a complete difference," said the actress.
