I think Selena Gomez is the best actor to play Alex in Wizards of Waverly Place. She was a good choice because of her acting, her looks and her emotions.
The first reason Selena Gomez was a good pick for Wizards of Waverly Place is that she is good at playing a scatterbrained character .Also she makes me laugh the way she’s always missing school. Some times gets spells right even though she does not practice them. She also became the family wizard just by using one spell, even though her brother practices really hard. She’s an enjoyable character to watch doing all these air-headed things.
The second reason I’m glad Selena Gomez plays Alex is that she and the other actors look like they could be a real family. She looks like her movie mom and looks the right age to be her daughter. She and her brothers have same hair color and expressions. I don’t think the show would be as believable if another actor played Alex.
In conclutian to being an enjoyable character and looking the part, she knows how to be emotional. For example, it’s really convincing how she cries when she breaks up with a boyfriend. She can act both smart and dumb and she can act without being over-dramatic.
Selena Gomez is a person of many talents. This is why I think she is the perfect person to be Alex of Wizards of Waverly Place, one of my favorite shows.
