Even in his death, Michael Jacksons impact continues to live on.

Zac Efron, popularly known for his roles in High School Musical and Baywatch, in an interview on The Graham Norton Show, revealed he became emotional when he talked to the late pop star, Micheal Jackson during a phone call.

Although they never met, Efron said while having dinner with Kenny Ortega, director of High School Musical, in Paris during the promotion of High School Musical movies, when a call came in.

In his words, “His phone rang, and I remember I got this look, like … ‘You want this phone call.’ I was like, ‘Okay,’ so I came over and was like, ‘What’s going on?’ He goes, ‘It’s Michael Jackson.'”

Efron explains that he became at a loss for words and started gushing about how he is a fan of the music legend. Jackson, oblivious of who it was, politely thanked him and requested that the phone is given to Kenny.

It was only after Jackson knew who it was that told him over the phone that he loves high school musical and at that point, he (Efron) “lost it. I lost my balance. I think I fell over into the wall … I just started crying. I was a mess”.
