I have some really great news for all of my fellow High School Musical fans. The Evans twins are back together, proving that Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel have come a long way from their Disney days. The former on-screen sibs recently teamed up to recreate their magical duet, "What I’ve Been Looking For," more than 10 years after the first film's debut in 2006. In a nostalgic video posted to Tisdale's Youtube Channel, the pair takes a trip down memory lane to reminisce about their time on the HSM set and reveals a surprising secret. Despite playing brother and sister in the movie, they actually "hated" one another back in those days.
There's no need to worry though, because the two were totally able to laugh it off as immaturity. They've since moved past their differences, admitting in the clip that they now feel that they share a special bond having starred in all three of the franchise's movies together. Tisdale went on to reveal that, interestingly enough, her personality was much like that of her on-screen persona Sharpay Evans at the time, which explains a lot about why they most likely didn't get along back then.
Before performing their song together with Grabeel seated behind the piano, Tisdale began to explain the love that she's had for him since wrapping the last film. "After we wrapped ... I've always had a love for you. You're literally like my twin brother," she explained, as he reciprocated the feelings, replying, "I love you, too."
And just like that, the beef that fans never even knew existed was out in the open and over, as they shared a big hug before breaking out into perfect harmony. Grabeel played along on the keys. Check out the touching music session below:
It's not your typical high school reunion, to say the least, but these two still sound amazing together.
And I don't know about you, but I think it's really great to see the brother-sister team of Sharpay and Ryan Evans back in-tune with one another, just the way that fans have always remembered.
