Selena Gomez as Zoe
Selena Gomez began making the transition on the big screen from young actress to adulthood with such films as the much talked about Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival to critical acclaim while Gomez’s performance was singled out as a “breakout.”
She appeared in the Academy Award-nominated film The Big Short, opposite Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling, as well as in The Fundamentals of Caring alongside Paul Rudd. The latter film premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and Gomez was named one of “The 20 Best Performances of Sundance 2016" by New York Magazine. Other credits include: Rudderless, Neighbors 2 and the James Franco-directed Indubious Battle. Gomez has added producer to her impressive list of credits serving as an executive producer of the hit Netflix original series “13 Reasons Why.”
As a recording artist, Selena has sold over 65 million tracks worldwide. Most recently she collaborated with DJ Snake, Ozuna and Cardi B on the enormous global hit “Taki Taki,” which became one of the fastest videos to reach over 100 million views. Her previous five singles, “It Ain’t Me” with Kygo, “Bad Liar,” “Fetish,” “Wolves,” and “Back to You,” garnered enthusiastic reviews. Entertainment Weekly praised Gomez for making “the most unexpected pop music of the year” while Rolling Stone proclaimed “Bad Liar” as “smart and streamlined.” At the end of 2017 Gomez was named among Billboard’s “Women of the Year.” In 2015, Gomez released her critically acclaimed album Revival. The first three singles off the album, “Good For You,” “Same Old Love” and “Hands to Myself,” went to Number One on the US Top 40 chart. Gomez joined an elite group, becoming only the sixth female artist to have at least three songs from one album reach the top position since the chart launched in 1992.
