SAN ANTONIO – As a die-hard fan of Selena, Noemí González is diving into a very familiar world of Tejano, familia and Selena’s legacy. Originally, she auditioned for the role of Selena, but ended up playing her sister, Suzette.
“My manager was like, the Suzette breakdown came down and I see you working in her essence much more,” González said. “I was like, you know, you’re right, let’s do this.”
González is starring alongside Christian Serratos, San Antonio-native Ricardo Chavira and Seidy López.
“It was definitely emotional, definitely a lot of inner child beauty of being a little Latina girl...having her dreams to have a beautiful happy life and register that I am an artist, to have Selena be an inspiration and have that connection with her and to ultimately be sharing her story for future generations, it’s just full circle,” González said.
