Zac Efron wishes to be an action star

London: Zac Efron has expressed his desire to star in an action film.

The ‘High School Musical’ star fancies flexing his action muscle as an all-action hero - but claims he needs to earn his stripes first.

"Action’s cool - but that’s something that I feel like that is only really done well if you truly feel like the actor deserves it," a news daily quoted him as saying.

"I think when Liam Neeson does an action movie... it just fits and makes sense. Daniel Craig did Layer Cake before James Bond. I don’t think I’ve taken any of the preliminary steps yet. I can’t say if I was sitting in the audience today and I saw me in an action movie, it would quite make sense yet”.

"But hopefully I’ll get there. I would love to, in time. I’m gonna try," he added.

Zac, who next stars in tear-jerking drama ‘The Death And Life Of Charlie St Cloud’, insists that he should be taken more seriously.

"(There is) pressure from myself. I wouldn’t say I feel it externally from other people," he admitted.

"It seems like it would have been fine if I’d just gone and done another musical or something. I think for my own sanity and to prove something to myself, I definitely have to diversify, try new things that are more challenging, that are perhaps scary and that have a good probability that I’ll fall flat on my face in the execution,” he added.
