Look At Her Now – Lyrics
They fell in love one summerA little too wild for each other
oung Selena began her brilliant career on the screen. On account of the performer more than twenty roles in films and TV shows. Her acting career started with a role in the children’s cognitive television show “Barney and Friends” in 2002.
Real popularity brought her participation in the Disney TV series “Wizards of Waverly Place”, where Selena played a significant role. “Wizards” did not go off the screens for five years (2007-2012), becoming a real serial favourite among adolescents. For her role as a young sorceress, Selena Gomez has received five annual Kids’ Choice Awards since 2009.
After the success of the series, Selena Gomez mainly played in youth comedies. Among them are films such as “Another Cinderella Story”, “Monte Carlo”, “Princess Protection Program”, “Ramona and Beezus”.
Not wanting to freeze in the same roles of “lovely girls from good fairy tales”, the actress seeks to go beyond the same style. In 2012, she tried herself in other genres – disaster films, action films, psychological dramas. First, the singer plays in an action movie with elements of the horror film directed by Nicholas Lopez “Aftershock”. She was best known for the crime drama with aspects of the black comedy directed by Harmony Korin, “Free Breaks.” This time, the actress was in the role of a college student, who seeks to relax “to the fullest.”
Periodically, Selena Gomez appears on the screens in the role of herself. For example, in the documentary “Unification”, as well as in the reality show “Star Pranks.” Unusual was her appearance in this genre in the movie directed by Adam Mackay “The Short Game”, which won the Oscar in 2016 in the nomination “Best Adapted Screenplay”.
In addition to roles in the movie, Selena Gomez is involved in voicing cartoons. Her voice can hear in such animated films as “Monsters on Vacation”, “Arthur and the War of Two Worlds”, “Horton”, “Arthur and Revenge of Urdalak”.
In 2017, Selena performed in a new role. The drama series 13 Reasons Why became her first production experience. Thirteen episodes of high school students raise essential and excruciating issues. They are associated with the causes of teenage suicide, bullying at school, problems with parents, first relationships. According to critics, sometimes the series is too realistic. However, this was the intention. For example, the heroine’s suicide scene shot with the closest possible suicide. The goal was to show how scary and painful it was.
The shocking truth, as Selena Gomez herself said in an interview, should make teenagers think that suicide is a romantic and beautiful act.
