Selena Gomez: My Favorite 'Wizards' Memories

Selena Gomez: My Favorite 'Wizards' Memories

With the final season of Wizards of Waverly Place coming to an end, Selena Gomez is reflecting on some of her fondest memories from the hit Disney Channel show.

Here’s what the 18-year-old singer and actress had to share with Latina:

On spending downtime with her cast mates: “We came in to rehearsal one day and we didn’t even rehearse. The whole cast and crew sat in the set living room and talked for two hours. We had coffee, food, we were laughing, and we were all so comfortable that I was in my pajamas!”

On Wizards being a safe haven: “In this business, I get so paranoid. You go out to dinner and there are people taking pictures of you and you have to be cautious of how you get out of a car … it feels so weird and it’s so unfortunate that you have to live your life that way, but [on the set of Wizards] I looked around and I thought, ‘I really feel safe here.’ That was my favorite moment.”

On TV not having a show about a Latino family once Wizards ends: “That’s freaky. That’s so sad. OK, we need to get on that! That’s crazy town.”

    uhh did she forget about the Latino family on Modern Family

  • Helen

    Uh… there’s not even a single show based on an Asian family!

  • dude

    as in “she” – you mean the writer who asked Selena for comment that no single show would be centered on a Latino family after Wizards ends.

  • Alli

    WTF?? the season just started

  • SJS

    They are the whitest “Latino” family i’ve ever seen. If there’s gonna be a Latino family based show, how about they choose non-”whitewashed” ethnic actors/actresses. Seriously.

    No hate on Selena or the other cast members; I like them.

  • Precious

    @SJS: I see what you mean, Selena’s the only Latino of the kids and then her on screen mom…

  • 2bedatcool

    whats new on you show this season

  • http://yahoo chiny

    this is one of you fan from grenada.i love you and your song especially a year without rain

  • Jackie

    On that last note, i think i’d take her over Demi Lavoto any day of the week. She’s got more charisma and isn’t prone to alienating the people around her like Demi does. Hopefully this treatment helps to bring that girls ego down a few notches. Its taking up way to much space.

    Anyway, as to the shows coming up, it seems like Disney is geered toward more song and dance shows. Which is a shame because lets face it, they can get pretty annoying. Shake it up just started, which is ok for what it is. But now they are bringing back a new show as a version of HSM. They need to stick with the family driven shows. The realistic ones with a disney spin. But i guess that’s just my opininon.

    With Wizards, HM, JONAS and my personal favorite SLOD basically ending all in the same season (if SLOD doesn’t get a fourth season, which they should) disney is geared up to replace them. But truthfully, from reading the press releases i don’t think that they have to much to offer the upcoming generation. :)

    @YAY ME: Someone’s incredibly jealous and blind. Selena is beautiful and you clearly have no life. She can definitely act and has improved on her singing. You are just pathetic, sad, and a complete fail on life.

  • Naomi

    @YAY ME:

    if you don’t like her, why did you click on the post? if you have nothing nice to say about her, don’t waste your time and energy on her. it’s quite simple.

  • Kamen Rider Red Fire

    Wizards Of Waverly Place is TOTP and I’m feeling real sad that its over.

  • Maximum miley fanpage

    Selena is cute and funny..I hope she does lots of movies and another series was a good show..seems like it wasn’t on that long…but I guess it’s been a few years. Best wishes Selena. Demi is amazing too..kind of low for someone to pick on her while she is rehab..nobody knows why their friendship ended for sure..get over it.

  • 2bedatcool

    i wonder is they would would have a rewunion episode in 30 years lol

  • Rebacca


  • AnonymousGuy08

    Yes, but the episodes we’re seeing now were filmed several months ago.

  • CayAlex

    @Precious Jake T. Austin (aka Max) is also Latino. He is the voice of Diego on Go Diego Go.

  • JIF

    Im kinda bummed out that ther isnt gunna be a Latino family on DISNEYanymore….if u havent guessd it Im Latina

  • VioletV

    @SJS you are so ignorant.

    So according to your narrow mindset, Latino’s cannot be white?

    What a dope.

    Latinos are NOT a race! Latinos can be brown, black but they can also be white like Alexa Vega, Selena Gomez, Lynda “Wonder Woman” Carter or even Spanish-speaking Sara “Aquamarine” Paxton who’s mother is from Mexico.

    Aside from WOP we had George Lopez and their ‘chicano’ family. And before that we had Chico and the Man and ‘I love Lucy’ with Desi Arnaz, who happens to be white and who was proud of his Latino background.

    Get informed SJS before you open that pie hole about stuff you know nothing about!
