Zac Efron knew he was destined to star in sailing drama Charlie St. Cloud because he read the script on a boat trip with his father.

"Charlie" is a keen sailor mourning the death of his brother, and the "High School Musical" hunk knew he wanted to take on the film project from the very first moment he opened the script. He explains, "I remember it (the script) was in the bottom of my backpack and I, oddly enough, went on a sailboat with my dad. I opened the script after we had spent the night on the boat and went to the front of the deck and started flipping through the script.

"The first few pages were on a sailboat and the weirdest thing was as I was reading it the boat started rocking, the wind filled the sails and it was like ';(God) you have to make that obvious (I should take the part)'."

Did you catch Zac in Charlie St. Cloud this Summer? The movie is set to release on DVD on November 9.
