Join me today in #CelebratingSelena. 🌹✨ I can’t believe it’s been 23 years since this incredible movie came out and 25 years since her passing. Selena was such an inspiration to me and I was so lucky to be chosen to play her. As an artist, this movie truly was an experience I’m going to remember for the rest of my life. Please share your memories of Selena and the movie with me below.🌹❤️ 🎥: @louispalacios
After becoming a worldwide music star, Quintanilla’s life was taken in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas in 1995. Her manager at her clothing boutique, Yolanda Saldivar took her life.
Selena’s story will continue to be told on screen in Netflix’s new series, Selena: The Series. It stars Christian Serratos as the late icon.
This new series will be broken in two parts. Part one will air this year and feature six one-hour-long episodes.
