The singer and actress said that she feels "grateful" for the opportunity to be part of such a successful series and reflected on her last days on set in an interview with Starpulse.
"It has been fun, it has been crazy, it has been great. We had a great run and being able to say that I was on a show for four years and got to be with a great cast is a thing that a lot of people can't say. I feel very grateful for that," Gomez explained.
"[The last day] was very emotional... We went in and I was trying to avoid it as much as I could. I was trying not to think about it and just continue to do the scene and whenever they said that was a series wrap on my character and then listening to them wrap was really hard. I just started crying and I couldn't stop. The two guys were like macho men not crying."
Asked if she had a favourite Wizards of Waverly Place episode, the 19-year-old responded: "I never really had a favourite episode, I remember season three because that was my favourite because we all had our groove, it wasn't the end, we knew we were going to do another one and we all just played against each other and were just wanting to make each other better. It was the best season I think and all of that was my favourite."
Wizards of Waverly Place will air a special one-hour series finale on January 6 on Disney.
