“We are thrilled to honour actor Zac Efron, who began his career as a Disney alum and has reinvented himself as a leading man by playing a wide variety of great roles,” Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement.

“What a way to end our year of star ceremonies with this very popular and gifted actor!”

Efron's career began in the early 2000s, appearing in guest star roles for TV shows including ER and Firefly.

However, the actor's breakthrough role was Troy Bolton in the Disney Channel made-for-TV movie High School Musical.

Following his success on the small screen, the 36-year-old transitioned to much bigger projects, with hits such as Hairspray, 17 Again and Bad Neighbours.

Efron's latest role will see him star as professional wrestler Kevin Von Erich in the A24 biopic Iron Claw.

The film explores the Von Erich family, a dynasty of professional wrestlers and the personal tragedies that haunted their lives.

While the actor is known for this physique, he recently opened up to Entertainment Tonight and revealed that playing the famed wrested was the most gruelling transformation he's had to undergo in his career so far.

"This movie's a true story, and that man, Kevin Von Erich right there, he really motivated me to get in shape for this movie," Efron told the outlet.

"The physicality he brought to the ring every single day was really unique. It changed wrestling," Efron continued.

"I knew that was going to be the hardest [thing] for me to master and get right. So, I put everything I had into it.

Do I smell an Oscar?
