Yara Shahidi Starred on Wizards of Wavery Place…What


That’s right, Black-ish star, Yara Shahidi once was a guest star on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place.

You probably weren’t even aware. Recently the official Disney Channel Twitter posted a throwback with Selena Gomez and Jennifer Stone with the caption “did you know Black-ish star Yara Shahidi once guest starred on Wizards of Waverly Place?!”

In 2009, Yara worked alongside Gomez and the rest of the cast on a single episode titled, “Doll House.” The episode involves Gomez’s character, Alex Russo using her magical powers to shrink herself down, so she could use her doll house as an art studio. Things can never go smoothly though. The doll house is given away to Yara character, a little girl named Olive. The only thing is, Alex is still inside. Just like every episode, it always works out in the end.

Yara is not the only star to appear in the TV series. Sara Paxton, Bridgit Mendler, Misty May-Treanor and even Shakira guest starred at some point. Now that you know this, it is probably time to binge watch this old Disney favorite.
