Our fave honorary Aussie, Zac Efron, has begun filming season 2 of his Netflix series and he’s recruited his Byron Bay girlfriend (or should that be his Byron Bay bae?) Vanessa Valladares, along with his younger brother, Dylan Efron.
The High School Musical ledge and his GF were spotted at the Fish Butchery in the swish Sydney suburb, Paddington yesterday, where they filmed scenes for Zac’s series, Down to Earth with Zac Efron.
Dylan Efron was also spotted on set following his release from the mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Head here to have a peek at the pics.
Annoyingly, despite the fact that the series is filmed in Australia, it’s not actually available on Aussie Netflix just yet. No idea if this will change any time soon, but I bloody well hope so! Especially given that the second season will be a full Efron family affair.
Peep the trailer below (albeit from the US):
A Byron Bay resident recently wrote in to gossip Instagram page Celeb Spellcheck during a special segment where they asked fans to send in sweet DMs from local stars (there are a fuck ton in Australia right now – we’re basically the new Hollywood).
The local yokel said that Zac “is so lovely” and always v. friendly to waiters, servers, etc which we absolutely bloody love to hear.
The anonymous Byron resident also described Zac as a “super chilled down to earth guy.” A fitting statement, especially considering his Netflix show is called Down to Earth with Zac Efron.
According to Who Magazine, Zac and Vanessa were set up by her manager at the Byron Bay cafe where they met, The General Store.
Vanessa was working at the popular café as well as the Light Years restaurant when she met the Hollywood star back in July last year and her boss seemingly played matchmaker. What a boss.
“They were introduced by her boss,” a source told the local mag, adding that she’s a “lucky girl.”
Meanwhile another source told PEOPLE that the pair “started hanging out in July and recently took a ski trip together.”
“You can tell that they are having fun,” they added. “She spends a lot of time at his house.”
Want more deets on the happy couple? Well, here’s our thorough investigation of Zac Efron and his Byron bae.
