One of my last assignments from the first time I interned with Celebuzz was covering the finale and what the end of Disney Channel’s hit show Wizards of Waverly Place.
I got to attend the press junket and chat with the stars such as Selena Gomez and David Henrie about what the end would bring and what the next steps for the actors would bring.
Here’s an insert from the interviews I had with Gomez, Henrie and Jake T. Austin themselves:
In the finale, the Russo siblings Justin, Alex and Max, face a sudden challenge where they must go through an ultimate test to see which one of them gets to keep their wizardly powers. The anticipation has been rising and fans keep trying to figure out who will be the winner. We sat down with Selena, David Henrie and Jake T. Austin to get some info on their best memories.
What are you going to miss most about each other?
Selena: Honestly, the fighting with him. (David) I am, because it was the best, whenever I read scripts or read anything and its bickering, I’ve never done it as well as when I did it with David, on the show and in real life. It was good and it was fun!
David: Yeah it was fun. I don’t know, she’s a lot fun I had a good time with her.
Jake: I’m going to miss working with the crew, working with the cast every day. I’m going to miss playing my character Max because it was so much fun with the unpredictable antics that the writers wrote. We’re going to miss it, but it’s not like we are going to cut contact from each other! We still know each other, we’re still involved. It’s just not going to the same work place and be in that environment ever again. The only way that we will be able to relive that is by watching the episodes. It’s kind of sad, but at the same time you have to be appreciative of what we had.
What’s the best thing that you got out of this experience?
S: I learned a lot. Whenever people ask me that, even if it’s not in an interviews, I always say my cast and my crew just taught me so much! I thank David and Jake, especially David, for challenging me as an actress because he opened me up and made me better.
Did you take any mementos from the show?
S: The producers from the shows gave us our wands, it was really cool. It’s this cool glass case with a little engraving with each of our wands in it.
J: Yeah they gave us our wands, menus, we took everything! Anything to remember I guess.
