Even before she hit her teens, Selena Gomez showed evidence of a promising acting career. She takes direction from the CD like a pro while doing her “goat scene” and doesn’t lose her focus when asked to start over.

This is the audition that would eventually lead to Gomez’s role on Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place,” and turns in films such as “Spring Breakers,” “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” and her singular scene in awards season contender, “The Big Short.”

See if you can pick up some tips for your next audition from this born star.
