The One Thing Selena Gomez Kept from the Wizards of Waverly Place Set
Selena Gomez has come a long way since her days playing Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place, but she hasn’t forgotten the beloved character. In a recent interview, she even revealed she still keeps one piece of memorabilia from the set.
She made an appearance at her old stomping grounds, Radio Disney, to answer some questions from her famous fan friends. Jenna Ortega, from Disney Channel’s Stuck in the Middle and Elena of Avalor, who was a huge Wizards of Waverly Place fan back in the day, asked if she still pretends to be Alex Russo when no one’s watching.
“I think I am Alex Russo — I think that’s the thing,” she says.
She went on to say she still has the wand Alex Russo carried in her boots. “You know what I do miss, though? I miss having my wand in my boots, because that’s what I always used to carry,” the 25-year-old admits. “And I actually have my wand. People don’t know that, but I actually have it framed, and it’s really cute, and I’m very emotional when I talk about it, so I’m not going to get too emotional.”
In related Wizards of Waverly Place news, Jake T. Austin told People Chica that the cast is still all very close, and they always check in with each other. We even got a Wizards reunion back in April for co-star David Henrie‘s wedding and we got to live vicariously through Jake’s social media.
He posted a Russo family picture with the caption, “A special day with amazing people.”
