Selena Gomez

Powered by imdb

Selena Marie Gomez was born and raised in Grand Prairie, Texas, to Mandy Teefey, who is of part Italian descent, and Ricardo Gomez, who is of Mexican descent and originally from New Mexico. Her parents divorced in 1997. Giving birth to Selena at 16, her mom Mandy recalls living "paycheck-to-paycheck". Selena started out on Barney & Friends as "Gianna" in 2001 where she really discovered her talent. Unfortunately, they dropped her from the series after just two years. In 2003, she had a very small role in the movie Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over and a bit part in 2005 when she played "Julie" in Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire with Mitchel Musso and in 2006 as "Emily Grace Garcia" in Brain Zapped when she recorded a song for the movie. She she guest starred as "Gwen" in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and as Hannah's rival, the 'evil' "Mikayla", in Hannah Montana. Selena's amazing talent landed her roles in two Disney series, both spin-offs. Unfortunately, neither show was picked up until 2007 when she got the role of "Alex Russo" in the magical series Wizards of Waverly Place which she auditioned for three times. In March 2008, she made her first animated movie Horton Hears a Who! and later starred in Another Cinderella Story with Disney Channel star Drew Seeley for ABC Family. Her two Disney Channel Original Movies Princess Protection Program, with real-life BFF Demi Lovato, and Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie will both air Summer 2009.  See full bio on IMDb »
