Selena Gomez has recently finished her time on air as the face of the Disney show, 'Wizards of Waverly Place'. Â Her first role away from Disney (although she has done other roles during her stint on 'Wizards') is as different from the Disney image as you can get. Â Her role in Spring Breakers (while reportedly the least risky of all the other characters) is still a role that might not be something her young fans may be able to watch. Â When asked about the importance of the role to her career in an interview with the Upcoming, Gomez answers "I mean, I do specific things in my career that are tailored for a specific audience. Obviously I have a younger generation that looks at me, and I really appreciate that, and I just did an animated movie. So, I want to respect that and still do things that will earn me that respect. But I also want to do things that challenge me and put me out of my element, and when I met Harmony I completely trusted him and I just felt like this was the safest place I could try this, to be who I want to be and try to become a better actress."
Gomez also talks about playing the only character with a moral compass, something her character, Faith, and her have in common. Â In addition, she's asked about improvisation, to which she jokingly replies that she never wants to do a movie with lines again. Â "I donât want to do a movie with linesÂ again! It forces you to really become that person. You know there is a guideline and you know what you are supposed to be portraying, but you are the one making the words and creating the scene. Iâve never faced such a testing challenge, and it was really fun. It will be hard to go back to memorising a bunch of lines."
'Spring Breakers' is directed by Harmony Korine and co-stars Gomez with Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine. Â
