The Princess Switch actress got right to the punch: “I always feel like I have such a connection to you.”

"I know, we're soul sisters," Olivia said to her Disney forerunner.

Before she became the hitmaker that we know her as today, Olivia first found fame on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. She portrays Nini Salazar-Roberts in the show, a student who plays the role of Gabriella in a production of HSM.

Vanessa iconically originated the role in the Disney Channel original movie back in 2006, completing three films in total as the talented singing student.

The actresses shared words of adoration for one another, with fans elated to finally see the two link up IRL!

Hudgens said to Olivia on the carpet: "No pressure, but when are we getting some new music, because I've listened to the album multiple times and I'm so excited to see what you do next."

“You're very sweet, working on it right now and constantly writing, just want to make sure it's ready," she responded.

Olivia hinted at another album: "Excited for a new era."

We love to see the two Gabriella's supporting one another!

The 33-year-old star has shown her appreciation for Rodrigo in the past, revealing to E! News in February that she's a fan of the actress-turned-pop star's music career.

She said: "Olivia's incredible and I'm such a fan of hers — love her music — so it's amazing seeing [High School Musical] continue to live on."
