Christian Serratos Didn't Speak To Jennifer Lopez About Portraying Selena, Here's Why

Christian Serratos opens up about prepping for her role in Selena: The Series.

The 30-year-old actress plays the late Selena Quintanilla-Perez in the new Netflix series, and recently revealed if she got any tips from Jennifer Lopez.

“I thought about reaching out to her, but I wanted to seem cool so I didn’t,” she told Marie Claire. “I really respect what she did in that film because there was this resurgence of Selena’s work [afterward].”

Christian also told the mag that she had put on the 1997 film Selena, but turned it off after a few minutes out of fear “she’d conflate her own instincts about the superstar with Lopez’s version.”

Christian Serratos is speaking out about her new iconic role!

The 30-year-old actress is portraying the late Selena Quintanilla-Perez in the upcoming Netflix show Selena: The Series.

Christian recently opened up in a new interview about the pressure of taking on such a role.

“I felt so much pressure to be and bring Selena back to the screen,” she told ET. “I know what an important role this is and I know how important it is for all her fans and her family, so I definitely worked really hard to try and be as honestly Selena as I could.”

“I had never had this much responsibility before, and I just wanted to use every resource that I could,” Christian added. “So I started working with a dialect coach on my own before I had the job, which I think was really helpful. I started working with my singing coach, who I love so much, Eric Vitro, before I booked the job, and he also helped me with the audition.”

Christian also added that the performance sequences were the most challenging.

“I feel like those are the moments where they’re gonna say like, ‘Come through! Show up as Selena, let’s go!’” she dished. “Those are the moments that are most fun but also I know are gonna be the most work, because I have to do what the fans want, I have to be her. And that’s a lot of pressure.”
