The fact that Selena Gomez is rocking the industry with 346 million followers on Instagram tells how successful and good she is at her craft.
Not a lot of people know that Selena started as an actor in the past but later decided to join singing, and today the reason behind her huge fan following and fame is singing. She is an actor and a singer by profession.
Let’s get some neurons rolling and see how her acting career has evolved over the years:
Her First Screen Appearance
Her first appearance was seen in Barney and Friends from 2002 to 2004, a children’s television series.
Later in her teens, she got a lead role as Alex Russo for the Disney Channel television series, which is known as Wizards of Waverly Place (2007 -2012). Salena has also been seen in a series named So Random, with the release date of 5th June 2011.
Another Cinderella story (2008)
This was an American teen romantic film. Like all other Cinderella stories, the reviews explain nothing new or different from the same storyline, but Selena’s character has a different vibe which makes one watch her. FunFact: She started as an actor and her singing talent was discovered later.
Wizards of Waverly Place (2009)
It was an American family fantasy tv program. The themes explored were family, fantasy, friendship, and adolescence.
The plot goes like a family who owns a sandwich shop that is made to look like a subway. The family has a wizard background, and the parents secretly teach their kids.
The show gained good viewership for an extended period. Selena became the crush of many after this series was out. Her acting had a fair share in the success of this series. You can watch it on Disney Plus if you haven’t already.
Monte Carlo (2011)
It was a movie with 50% of people liking it and 50% disliking it. The movie is about three girls who have their storylines, and the reviews show people love Selena’s character. People found Selena’s character very convincing.
Princess protection program (2009)
A show which is about a princess whose country gets taken over and she hides and has to act as a cool teenager.
The genres it has are family and comedy. Unfortunately, I did not love it; some didn’t like the ending, and some didn’t like the familiar storyline.
Fundamentals of Caring (2016)
This was a comedy-drama film, a film which had been loved primarily because of the cast. The reviews depict there were no excellent expectations from Selena but her work in this. The genre is comedy and drama.
Selena’s work shows that she prefers comedy, family, and drama back then. Which can ultimately tell that mostly no nudity scenes are to be found in her acting career as they were family shows.
From Acting to Producing Films
Did you know she has also tapped into producing some movies? Some of the years went bland for her acting fans as they couldn’t see their sweetheart on screens as an actor, but she has been a producer of many well-known shows such as

She not only has been a producer, an actor, or a singer but also a host. The multi-talented Star has been living in people’s hearts without any rent since her first Disney appearance!
Reality TV Show
She owns a presence in a stellar reality cooking show called Selena+ Chef, where she is seen honing her cooking skills. The show has provided the viewers with a chance to see Selena Gomez as a chef making their favorite recipes. She has also won many awards for this show.
Selena Gomez is a slay-queen. Whatever she does, she does it with all her heart giving her 100%, and it pays eventually. Be it her makeup line, RareBeauty, her impeccable singing career, or her acting, she continues to excel in the industry.
Her acting in the series “Only Murderers in the building” has taken many by surprise as she has played a quirky character in it. Many commended hIn addition to her interaction with the rest of the cast of this series.
Her list of acting awards is too long to name each award separately. However, some of her well-earned awards that left everyone in awe of her acting and hosting skills include the Holywood Critics Association Award in 2022, the Critics’ Choice Real TV Award in the same year, and the TV Award for Selena and chef in 2022.
