But not everyone else in the cast was able to keep up with her momentum. So where is the cast of Selena now? Here are what the eight of the main actors are up to now.

She played older sister, Suzette who played the drums. She continued her movie career with Eat Your Heart Out, Picking Up the Pieces, and King of the Open Mics. She then made the switch to TV by playing Gordie in American Family. You probably haven't seen her around because she left acting and opened a boutique.
She played mother and bustier maker, Marcela. The funny thing is the actress auditioned for the lead role and was only four years older than Jennifer Lopez. After the movie she got regular roles on TV shows including Union Square and Early Edition, though you most likely recognize her for her long stint on George Lopez, as matriarch Angie Lopez. You probably saw her recently playing yet another mother, Regina, on Switched at Birth. Now she's Linda on Angel from Hell.
He played the quiet and handsome husband, Chris Perez. Since then he has been bouncing around to different TV shows including Homicide: Life on the Street, Third Watch, OZ, and more. You can now catch him playing police officer, Antonio Dawson in Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.
The actor played the father and manager, Abraham. He continued acting in TV shows like Battlestar Galatica, American Family, and Dexter. He recently was in a few movies including 2 Guns. Today you can catch him in El Americano: The Movie voicing Gayo.
He played little brother and bass player, Abie. The actor went on to do more movies like Traffic, Jarhead, and The 33. You might have recently seen him on TV too. He played Montez in Sons of Anarchy, Julio in Hand of God, and more recently played Carlos in Colony.
The young actress played the younger Selena who sang beautifully and learned to do the washing machine. Although she did well in the movie her career didn't go very far. After the movie the 9-year-old came out with an album of songs for children called "Vive Tu Sueno." However, her singing career also didn't pan out. She now has a boutique called Rebecca Lee's Flowers and Bridal Boutique in Texas.
