Biography

Selena Marie Gomez was born on July 22, 1992 in Grand Prairie, Texas. She began acting at the age of seven on the children's television show Barney and Friends (2002). In 2004 she was scouted by the Disney Channel and received small guest roles on two Disney shows, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody (2006) and Hannah Montana (2007). She then accepted a starring role as "Alex Russo" on the family comedy The Wizards of Waverly Place television show (2007) and movie (2009). Selena also played the lead role of "Beezus Quimby" in Ramona and Beezus (2010), a film based on the popular children's book by author Beverly Cleary.

Not content with just acting, she has also recorded songs for Disney films and albums including Disneymania 6 (2008), Another Cinderella Story (2008), Tinker Bell (2008), and Princess Protection Program (2009). Her band, Selena Gomez & the Scene, released their first album in September, 2009, and performed their single, Falling Down, on an episode of Dancing with the Stars the same week.

Gomez has an impressive philanthropic resume for someone so young. In October of 2008 she participated in the St. Jude's Children's Hospital "Runway for Life" benefit. That same month, as the youngest UNICEF ambassador, she was named spokesperson for UNICEF's Trick-or-Treat campaign designed to encourage children to raise money for underprivileged children around the world. She has also been involved in "Disney Friends For Change," to promote environmental consciousness and participated in the "Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund."

Quotes

  • "The day I got my first letter from a fan, I felt like I'd been touched by an angel. I opened the note and read every single word the fan, Taylor, had to say. She told me she'd been to all of the tapings Wizards--it was unbelievable! I almost cried. I wrote her back this really long letter with an autograph to show her how sweet I thought she was."
  • "I was never the girl who thought I need to make sure I look like all the other girls. I think you look best when you stand out."
