Selena Gomez recently compared when she played Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place to her role as Mable in Only Murder in the Building.
While speaking with Entertainment Weekly's The Awardist podcast, Selena said, “I feel like Mabel is an older version of Alex in a way. I adored being on that show so much.”
She continued, “We got really lucky. I still look back at that and laugh at certain things just because I thought it was so fun, and we tried.”
Selena went on to say, “My reaction was honestly what I think my character would do because half the time I'm like, I don't get what you're trying to do, but it works. She's rubbed off on me a little bit. I love being quick, and I kind of steal Steve and Marty's jokes every now and then. She's fun.”
The singer-actress added, “I signed my life away to Disney at a very young age. and I didn't know what I was doing. I was just running around on set and now I just feel like a sponge, and I soak up all the wisdom that I can.”
Only Murders in the Building streams on Hulu.
