In an Instagram post, Selena Gomez shared a picture of herself looking up at the “Waverly Place” street sign in New York.
The Wizards of Waverly Place star shared the photo on Saturday, October 29, captioned “Where it all began.” In the photo, the 30-year-old actress, wearing an oversized coat, is staring up at the Manhattan landmark. She boosted the post by also posting it on her Instagram Story.
Selena Gomez played Alex Russo, sassy wizard, on the Disney Channel TV series Wizards of Waverly Place from 2007 to 2012. The role launched her career, which led to leading roles in films such as Spring Breakers and Monte Carlo and TV shows like Only Murders in the Building, as well as studio albums (Stars Dance, Revival, and Rare), a beauty line called “Rare Beauty,” and other projects.
Keeping In Touch With Co-stars
Throughout the years, she has stayed in touch with her Wizards of Waverly Place co-stars. She also posted pictures of their reunions on social media. In April of this year, Selena Gomez reunited with Jennifer Stone, who portrayed her best friend, Harper Finkle, in the series. They had an impromptu performance of their show’s iconic song, “Crazy Hat,” on Tiktok. Selena also reunited with David Henrie in 2020. Henrie played Max, her brother on the show. They reunited while he was virtually promoting his directorial debut, This Is the Year.
Three days before her Wizards of Waverly Place post, Selena Gomez had to postpone her engagements due to being COVID-19 positive. This includes her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, October 26.
She made the announcement on her Instagram story. Selena said that she would not be appearing on Fallon because she tested positive for COVID-19. Though, she was resting and feeling fine. “A friendly reminder covid is still out there. Get updated on your boosters. I was actually scheduled to get mine this week. Love you all,” Selena Gomez said.
My Mind & Me
Selena Gomez is currently preparing for the November 4. It is the release of her upcoming documentary, My Mind & Me, which follows her life over a six-year span.
Earlier this month, she said in the first teaser for the much awaited Apple TV+ movie that she had worked her entire life since she was a child. “And I don’t wanna be, like, super famous. But I do know that if I’m here I have to use that for good.”
Selena Gomez offered the same openness about her ups and downs in the documentary as she has done in the past when discussing anything from her personal relationships to her mental and physical health. “I am happier and I’m in control of my emotions and thoughts more than I have ever been.”
Directed by Alek Keshishian, Selena’s documentary will commence the opening night of the annual American Film Institute (AFI) festival. The AFI Fest in Los Angeles will present 125 films from Wednesday, November 2 through Sunday, November 6. The whole lineup includes special screenings of “Bones and All” and “Nanny.” They will also show Robert Downey Jr.’s documentary “Sr.,” “Le Pupille,” and “Women Talking.” The festival will conclude with Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical drama “The Fabelmans.”
