High School Musical’s Julia Lester is making the most of her live television opportunities, and shared when we could be seeing more!

Lester joined the AfterBuzz TV’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series after show with hosts Jeff Williams, Leslie Colon, and Chae’ Jones to discuss ‘Act Two’. Episode 10 “Act Two” was big for her character, Ashlyn, who experienced the culmination of their winter musical, and her new romance with Big Red just beginning.

The spotlight was really on Lester in episode 2: “The Read-Through,” which aired on Disney Plus back in November. Lester, along with follow costar Olivia Rodrigo, first performed ‘Wondering’ in preparation for the upcoming play.

“That was my very first, uh, time performing live on television, I guess, singing live on television. That was my very first time. And, um, just, I mean the support from the cast and crew just absolutely, just radiates and trickles from the top down,” said Lester.

Ashlyn wasn’t the only one with big moments in the finale. We saw EJ stepping aside, Ricky and Nini getting together, and Gina might not actually have to leave!

It’s pretty easy to say, Season 1 definitely left the audience wanting more from all our favorite characters, but we are not alone. Lester has some thoughts on what she would like to see for season 2.

“I’m hoping for more, more confidence from Ashlyn this season, and also, not, not only confidence in herself, but in her confidence in her relationship with Big Red, her relationship with her friends,” said Lester.

With Season 2 already being announced for 2020 release, Lester leaves us a little tease on when actually they will start production.

“I move in 11 days,” revealed Lester.
