Tisdale opened up about her lasting friendship with Hudgens in August 2019. “We just have a connection and she’s so awesome and one of my best friends,” she exclusively told Us Weekly at the time. “What I love about her is that she’s so talented, and I think what we share is that we’re really grounded people and I think that that’s important, especially with what we do, is to stay grounded.”
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody alum also noted how the pair met before starring in the High School Musical film series. “We actually worked together a year before in a Sears commercial, and from that day on we were super close,” she explained. “So people don’t really — I think some people know that, but they think it was that movie that brought us together and it really wasn’t.”
Tisdale and Hudgens portrayed Sharpay Evans and Gabriella Montez, respectively, in 2006’s High School Musical, 2007’s High School Musical 2 and 2008’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year. They reunited virtually with their costars in April for The Disney Family Singalong.
