Zac’s transformed into the charming yet unnerving serial killer Ted Bundy for his latest venture on the thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.

He said about the biopic: ‘Ted had this thing about him, this magic Ted Bundy façade – his charm, the way he worked with people, people in prison loved him, cops seemed to think he was an OK guy.

‘He pulled the wool over a lot of people’s eyes.’

To transform into the notorious murderer, the High School Musical star had to get into the mind of him – by going vegan and wearing false teeth.

Zac said: ‘Guys in the 70s had that wiry, kinda thin look. Ted was always kind of, a little bit gaunt. He always looked pretty tired. I had a good set of fake teeth and they were pretty easy to talk with after a while.”
