Vanessa Hudgens recently shared that she's a big "fan" of Olivia Rodrigo when asked how she felt about the Traitor singer taking over the role of 'Gabriella' on High School Musical: The Musical.

Of course, Hudgens appeared on our screens as Gabriella Montez back in 2006 when High School Musical debuted on Disney Channel. She went on to reprise the role in the franchise's two sequels. Fast forward to late 2019, and the franchise was revived on Disney+ as High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, this time as a school that was acting out a play based on the original movies.

Rodriguez stars as Nini, who would claim the role of Gabriella in the play on the show. And of course, we all know what happened after Rodriguez made her break on the show-- a couple of number one hits, one of the biggest albums of 2021, and seven Grammy nominations.

Appearing on the SAG Awards red carpet on Sunday, Hudgens was asked about Rodriguez taking on the role that helped boost her into the spotlight.

"I mean, it's so wild," she told E! News. "I literally saw an Instagram post the other day that said 'Gabriella Montez,' and it wasn't me, and I was like, '...I'm sorry?'"

Vanessa continued:

"But Olivia's incredible, and I'm such a fan of hers, I love her music, so it's amazing seeing 'High School Musical' continue to live on."
