“I was homeschooled a lot, so I’m not the greatest speller, typer, you know. So I would just go home and I would record everything on a recorder. And then my co-star Chris Colfer, who’s an amazing writer, he’s like, “I just imagine you at home, with like a glass of wine being like, ‘Make-up, let’s talk about lipstick.’” And I was like, that’s funny, because that’s actually exactly like that.”—Lea Michele on Live With Kelly & Michael (via dailychriscolfer)
“I’m just now doing post-[production] on that episode, and she’s great. She completely went there. Not a stitch of makeup. She’s just a frumpy waitress. She really got it and embraced what the show was. I’m thrilled. And I knew she was a big fan of the show, and we had this role that opened up.

She was thrilled.”—Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter on Lea’s guest appearance (via littlegleeprincess)

Over the last five years, the series has followed a dynamic group of high school students from the halls of McKinley to the mean streets of New York City, as they embarked on life after high school. This season, after her humiliating failure as a TV actress, New Directions’ original star, RACHEL BERRY (Golden Globe Award nominee Lea Michele), comes home to Lima to figure out what she wants to do next. Upon discovering that SUE SYLVESTER (Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch) has banished the arts at McKinley, Rachel takes it upon herself to reinstate and lead the glee club. Meanwhile, BLAINE ANDERSON (Darren Criss), SAM EVANS (Chord Overstreet) and WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison) have all found surprising new gigs in Ohio. Throughout the season, other alumnae also will return to McKinley.
