Sure, Andrea Russett has officially made the leap from YouTuber to movie actress – but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t get starstruck anymore.

The 20-year-old vlogger revealed to her fans at VidCon on Friday that she’ll be appearing alongside Zac Efron in the upcoming comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates – and her first impression of the actor is giving us major FOMO.

“He’s a beautiful thing,” she said of Efron. “Everybody says he’s beautiful, and he is, but holy moley, man, seeing that in the flesh was a whole new experience.”

In the film, Russett says she and Efron have an “improv-y” scene together alongside Pitch Perfect‘s Adam DeVine.

“It was awesome,” she said of working with the actors.

When asked if she was nervous about acting with the comedy vets, Russett said, “I wouldn’t call it nervous. I’d say excited.”

Russett, whose YouTube channel boasts a whopping 2 million followers, made her acting debut in 2014’s Expelled.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, which also stars Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, hits theaters next summer.
