Charlie On "Charlie"
“After Sam dies, Charlie [Zac Efron's character] can't deal with it,” Charlie explains. “He can see Sam every day at sunset, so they kind of rebuild their brotherly relationship there and continue it.” Charlie says the hardest part of the role was when he had to cry. “I didn't think I was actually going to cry,” Charlie says. “I just made myself. I never really expected it.”

- “There were a couple of scenes where we cried. When we were exiting the woods and there was violin music, I saw one little tear. My mom cries at everything. She cried at the end of the Spongebob movie.”
