This just in: Enduring fixture of Australian life, Zac Efron, misses his bro. Word has it the US actor, who has been pottering around the country for around a year now, has been joined by his younger brother, Dylan Efron.
The High School Musical alumnus and his brother were reportedly spotted filming the second season of Down To Earth With Zac Efron in Sydney. Apparently his girlfriend and Byron bae (sorry) Vanessa Valladares was also on set.
In case you missed the first series back in 2020, Down To Earth With Zac Efron is basically a show where Zac wanders around a series of exotic locations, saying words like "Wow", "Amazing" and "Sick!" (It sounds quite relaxing.)
Given that he managed to travel to Australia during a global pandemic, Dylan's Instagram account has been overrun with comments from Australian citizens stuck overseas. The younger Efron did his best to allay their concerns. "The last thing I'm trying to do is be unsympathetic to the local families who are unable to be together right now," he wrote in response to the comments. "I'm very thankful to be able to work here and will do my best to raise awareness of what the locals are facing."
So many questions remain. Just how many Efrons are there? Are they all coming to Australia? Will Dylan Efron single-handedly bring home the stranded Australians?
We shall wait and see.
