SHARPAY SECRET #1
ASHLEY TISDALE HAD A LOT OF INPUT INTO THE LOOK OF SHARPAY!
“Ever since day one of the first High School Musical, I always had loads of ideas for Sharpay,” admits Ashley Tisdale. “I’d say things like, ‘Obviously, this chick [Sharpay] is crazy so why don’t I wear this skirt as a top?’ And that’s exactly what we’d end up doing! I think Sharpay looks great in the new movie. She’s growing up, but she still loves pink.”

THERE WERE NO DOGGIE DISASTERS!

ASHLEY CELEBRATED HER BIRTHDAY ON THE SHARPAY SET!
“It’s my birthday on July 2, but I had to work it last year because I was busy shooting Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure,” reveals Ashley. “I ended up celebrating it on the set, which was really cool! The cast and crew decorated my trailer and we had some amazing birthday cake. It was definitely a birthday to remember!”
SHARPAY SECRET #4
ASHLEY JUMPED AT THE CHANCE TO CONTINUE SHARPAY’S STORY!
“I love Sharpay, so I was really excited to jump on board with this new movie,” explains Ashley. “You don’t get to meet great characters like Sharpay too often, so I felt like I wanted to do this for my fans. The High School Musical franchise made me successful and Sharpay made me who I am in this business, so I wanted to go back and let her have her very own end to a great story.”
SHARPAY SECRET #5
ASHLEY MISSED HER High School Musical BUDDIES!
“I’m with an all-new set of actors on Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure because this is Sharpay’s solo story,” adds Ashley. “But I really missed my friends from High School Musical during the film shoot! It was really weird to walk onto the set as Sharpay without Zac and Vanessa being around. I missed them.”
SHARPAY SECRET #6
ASHLEY’S CELL PHONE INSPIRED SHARPAY’S RHINESTONE OBSESSION!
“Sharpay’s obsession with rhinestones goes back to the very first High School Musical,” reveals Ashley. “When we were shooting the first film, I went to the mall and got my cell phone covered in rhinestones. Everyone was doing it at the time. It was cool! As soon as the director [Kenny Ortega] saw it, he yelled, ‘Oh my gosh! It would be so great if Sharpay had rhinestones all over her outfits.’ He was totally inspired by my cell phone!”
SHARPAY SECRET #7
ASHLEY IS NOTHING LIKE SHARPAY IN REAL LIFE!
“Sharpay and Ashley are very different people,” chuckles Ashley. “Sharpay wears much more pink than I do in real life and she’s much more self-obsessed. I’m not a diva! However, Sharpay’s got a huge passion for acting and singing – and so have I.”
SHARPAY SECRET #8
THE NEW MOVIE IS VERY DIFFERENT TO HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!
“Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure isn’t a musical, but there are definitely musical elements to the movie,” reveals Ashley. “Sharpay gets to perform some great musical routines, which were a lot of fun to work on. Trust me… You’re going to love it!”

ASHLEY’S MOM JOINED HER ON THE SET!
