You know what they say – once a Disney Channel kid, always a Disney Channel kid. Well, at least that's what we say. And Selena Gomez is proof. The pop star's Disney Channel days may be behind her, but she's never too cool for Wizards of Waverly Place – and that's a fact. While stopping by her home at Radio Disney recently, the "Fetish" songstress answered some questions that some current Disney Channel stars had. The question Stuck in the Middle star Jenna Ortega asked, in particular, got Sel super nostalgic. Cue the aww's.
"Hey Selena Gomez. This is Jenna Ortega, and I just want to say really quick – I love you so much, and you have been such a big inspiration for me throughout my life. And Wizards of Waverly Place was my show, so I wanted to know if you still pretend to be Alex Russo when no one's watching?" Jenna asked Selena.
The OG Disney darling response proves she doesn't only hold her Wizards character close to her heart, but she actually ~is~ her in a way. Hey, we see the similarities!
"I think I am Alex Russo – I think that's the thing. You know what I do miss though? I do miss having my wand in my boots because that's what I always used to carry, and I actually have my wand," Selena confessed. "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."
But don't get too excited! Selena has previously stated that, no, she doesn't intend on reprising her role as Alex Russo for a reboot of any kind – despite having a hopeful chat with David Henrie about it. Well, at least we know she still has that wand. That's gotta count for something, right?
