Selena Gomez is a prominent symbol of successful youth, serving as one of the most well-known teenage sensations of the decade. As with most other young actors and actresses, it was Disney that first put Selena on the map. After starring on the show called Wizards of Waverly Place, she segued into feature films with movies like Another Cinderalla Story, Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie and Princess Protection Program. Lately, her career expanded into the music industry as she became the lead singer and founder of Selena Gomez & the Scene, which has released two gold certified studio albums.
Born in Grand Prairie, Texas, Selena is the daughter of a former stage actress and a hard-working Mexican American father. Her parents divorced when she was five years old, and her mother went through years of hard work to support her. She claims that watching her mother prepare for theatrical performances was the primary inspiration for her career endeavors.
Even avid fans may not realize that Selena's career began at the age of seven, when she acted on the show Barney & Friends. She also played minor roles in Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over and the TV film Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial By Fire. In 2004, she was discovered by Disney when the production company engaged in nationwide scouting. She then appeared on seasons two and three of Hannah Montana, as well as an unsuccessful spin-off of Lizzie McGuire.
After the broadcast of Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena instantly became one of the most successful young actresses of the decade. This led starring roles in a wide variety of children-oriented feature films and TV shows, allowing her to act with older stars like Hilary Duff and Drew Seeley. It was only recently, in 2010, when she began playing roles in films that aren't specifically made for children.
After forming her band in 2009, Selena immediately became a sensational lead singer, carrying the group’s second album onto number four on the Billboard 200. The third album achieved even more success, becoming the band's highest selling album yet. Selena quickly became an icon for the youngest generation, as her multi-talented outlook only proves that the nation's youth still have plenty to offer.
