Disney Channel Darling Gets A Taste Of Tween Fame

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Newbie Disney Channel darling Selena Gomez is getting her first taste of tween fame – and she’s loving it!

Gomez – who plays a teen wizard in the upcoming Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place – has been taping the show over the summer and has already scored herself a devoted tween following.

Gomez explains, “It’s cool getting recognized. The other day I went to a premiere and this girl said, ‘I know you! I went to your taping the other day!’ I was so happy, I was like, ‘Oh, you noticed me!’ I felt like a total dork but it was very exciting for me.”

And when she’s not meeting fans on the streets, Gomez keeps up with her peeps by reading her fanmail, which – to her delight – keeps piling up.

She says, “I’ve gotten letters from kids who came to the tapings and loved the show, and I’ve written every single one of them back. I put my very first piece of fanmail up on my wall because it was from my first fan, Taylor. She came to the show and brought me flowers and a card for my birthday. It was so sweet – I couldn’t believe it was all for me!”

Wizards of Waverly Place premieres this October on the Disney Channel.
