“I am so excited, I can’t believe it,” Baez said. “It was really fun being on set. I got to relive the moments in Selena’s life that happened to her and that was just really cool to relive the moments in Selena’s life.”

The young singer and actress from California added that her parents helped her learn about the “Queen of Cumbia.”

“I didn’t know who Selena was, but my mom and dad were huge fans of Selena and they told me about her and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, is there a movie about her?’,” she said. “I watched the movie and I just fell in love with her.”

The Quintanilla family is fully involved with the project and series including Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla as executive producer.
