'HS Musical 3’ Week Continues With Vanessa Hudgens

As we march towards this Friday's opening of the long-awaited "High School Musical 3," we continue our coverage of the flick's up-and-coming superstars. Yesterday we brought you a profile of Ashley Tisdale, and today we've got a look at her dark-haired co-star Vanessa Hudgens.

In our interview, Hudgens opens up about "HSM" (and how it's as close as she's gotten to a high school experience) as well as her next project, another high school pic called "Bandslam" that she promises is "a bit more rock and roll."
