“I think it was very important to everyone to only show what was necessary. I think that’s the respectful thing to do,” she stated about showing the end of the Tejano singer’s life.
Christian continued, “This isn’t the story of a tragedy; it’s the story of a wonderful, beautiful woman and I think watching it, knowing what happens, you’re already hit with emotion so it doesn’t need to be gratuitous.”
Selena was shot and killed by the president of her fan club Yolanda Saldivar in 1995. She was just 23 years old.
“It hit me like a ton of bricks that I was walking in the footsteps of somebody who was about to have something tragic happen.”
Both seasons of Selena: The Series are streaming on Netflix now.
