Selena Gomez Was Meant To Play A Big Role In '13 Reasons Why'
By now you must have heard about the show 13 Reasons why and the hype train behind it. Well it has basically become a mania online with nearly every post on Facebook being something about the show.
Selena Gomez is the ultimate multi-hyphenate celeb, she sings, acts, can dance and was an executive producer for 13 Reasons Why.
But it turns out the star was meant to have an even bigger role in the series - she was originally intened to play the main role of Hannah Baker.
Selena revealed she made the decision to stay behind the scenes as it would make the show more "credible".
“Once I left my series [Wizards of Waverly Place], once I started to go for roles that weren’t that age range — it organically began to become a project that I knew I would be behind the scenes with,” she told the NY Times.
“I actually like that I’m not in it. To be honest, this book has such a huge following. I wanted it to be credible. If I’m a part of it, that’s going to cause a whole other conversation.”
Selena also added she was happy another actor took on the role.
"A book is frightening for me because I know the cult following it has, which is the reason why I didn't want to be in it."
