Two schoolgirls from Birmingham have become the envy of all their friends when they scooped the interview of a lifetime with Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron.
Hodge Hill Girls School pupils Zara Rahim and Aanisah Sherbaz, both aged 14, were sent to interview the superstar in their first assignment for FILMCLUB, the nationwide after-school charity.
They were the only teenagers to interview Zac Efron during his UK trip to promote his latest film The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud.
Zac revealed what it was like to work with co-star Amanda Crew, where he drew his inspiration from for his character and gave the girls some of his personal film recommendations for them to watch in their next film club.
They also interviewed the director of the film Burr Steers, who directed Zac in the 2008 smash-hit 17 Again.
Zara and Aanisah are two of 35 schoolchildren from FILMCLUB's 160,000 members who have been selected to become official Young Ambassadors at film industry events as junior reporters.
Young Ambassadors are sent on assignments to interview actors and filmmakers, report from the red-carpet at premieres and act as spokespeople for the organisation.
Hundreds of members applied for the Young Ambassador programme this year, submitting a video of themselves interviewing friends or family, reviewing a film, and demonstrating their knowledge and passion for the movie industry.
Zara, Aanisah and other successful members then took part in a media training day in London, which included a presenting masterclass with CBBC TV presenters Johnny Pitts and Andy Akinwolere.
A selection of the Young Ambassadors will be interviewing writer and broadcaster Mark Cousins about his new film The First Movie, which is touring the country throughout October. The Birmingham screening and Q&A session will take place on October 22 at The Electric Cinema.
Founded by filmmaker Beeban Kidron (Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason) and educationalist Lindsay Mackie, FILMCLUB is an extended schools service, which offers children free weekly access to thousands of classic and popular films, as well as access to film industry news and screenings.
More than 5,000 UK schools have now joined the FILMCLUB scheme.
A free start-up session for schools interested in setting up a film club is being hosted in Birmingham on Tuesday November 2.
