"It was weird, it was a screen test I think. You kind of get thrown into it, and either you click or you don't," Efron recalled. "I'm pretty sure you know right away; thankfully we clicked right away. It was instant. We were hitting our stride almost immediately."

Efron went on to admit that Schilling actually taught him a great deal about acting.

"I found that I learnt a lot from her, which is always refreshing... it's a refreshing quality to see in your leading lady, it's fun," he said. "She's hilarious but she's very focused when it comes to the work. I was blown away by her."

Schilling recently described starring in The Lucky One as a huge journey.

The Lucky One opens on April 20 in US cinemas and in the UK on May 2.
