“I loved being on the Waverly set so much,” Gomez said on the Entertainment Weekly podcast.
“I felt I learned a lot. We had great screenwriters and an outstanding director “, artist continued, and thanks to the character of Alex, made way into the world of cinema (obtaining leading roles in films such as Spring Breakers and Monte Carlo ) as well as in the musical field (see the hits “Lose you to love me, “Look at her now” and “Ice cream”).
