Selena Gomez Vows Tears for ‘Waverly Place’ Finale
It might be a good idea to invest in Kleenex stock, because it sounds like Selena Gomez will be going through a box or six when her hit Disney show, Wizards of Waverly Place, draws to its impending close.
With Wizards coming to a wrap soon after four seasons, Gomez recently admitted that the waterworks will be flowing on set—so much so that she’s demanded that the finale not be filmed in front of a live audience, lest anyone see her shameful emotional display:
“I’m going to be the worst one, I am going to be an absolute mess—it’s going to be awful…I actually requested to not have a live audience show that day because it’s going to be that hard for me.”
And what of her co-stars—in particular, David Henrie, who plays her brother Justin on the series? Will his eyes be welling up with tears when the set is struck dark too? Well, not so much:
“It won’t be as hard for David and the boys. They’re boys, so they will be like, ‘All right, that was fun, see you guys.’ But I think Jennifer [Stone] and the girls will cry.”
Feel like crying yourself over the end of Wizards? Don’t worry; though Gomez says that she’s currently “finishing up season four,” there are also plans to make a second Wizards movie—so save your teary goodbyes for the time being.
