production for Only murders in the building Season 3 is rumored to start any day now and fans can’t wait to catch up with Mabel Mora. Played by Selena Gomez, the 20-year-old character brings humor to the show through biting wit, dry delivery and withering stares. But if Selenators (Gomez’s loyal fans) feel comfortable with the character, it’s for good reason. Gomez himself has said that in many ways, Mabel is a grown-up version of Alex Russo.

Alex Russo, of course, is the character who first made Gomez famous. She continued to play the mischievous witch from 2007 to 2012 Wizards of Waverly Place. During My mind & I Star had a few credits before playing Alex, and starring on Disney Channel made her a superstar. She also launched her singing career during her tenure on the show. Like Mabel, Alex had a very dry sense of humor, so the actor naturally draws parallels between the characters.

“I feel like Mabel is an older version of Alex in a way,” Gomez told The Awardist podcast. “I loved being on this show so much. I felt like I learned a lot. We actually had great writers – we had two writers that were on it friends — and we had an incredible director that we’ve used for most of our seasons. We really got lucky. I still think back to it and laugh at certain things just because I thought it was so much fun and we tried.”

This isn’t the first time Gomez has spoken openly about how much she enjoyed working on it Wizards of Waverly Place. The show gave her the opportunity to do what she loved every day. Also, she was cast on the show before she was the household name she is today. She forged bonds with her peers and crew that she believed to be authentic and genuine. In fact, the Rare Beauty founder credits the show as the last time she felt loved for who she was.

“They’ve been there before,” Gomez told Vogue of the actors who portrayed her TV family Wizards of Waverly Place. “They loved me for me and still do. I can’t say I have that anymore. I can’t meet someone and know if they like me for me.” Gomez continued, revealing that she would love to experience the kind of love she had before she ever became Alex Russo. “To be honest, I just want to start over,” she said. “I want everything to be brand new. I want someone to love me like I’m brand new.”
