Lea Michele Dishes on Glee Character

at . Comments

Lea Michele starred in a number of Broadway plays while in high school, most notably the Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening.

In a new interview, the actress - who portrays overachieving, fame-obsessed student Rachel Berry on Fox's new series, Glee - spoke on embracing her new role:

"I know I’m a theater girl, but I fell in love with the script so much, fought for it and now here I am! It’s kind of ridiculous. I still have moments at least twice a day when I’m like, 'This is amazing, I can’t believe this. I’m so happy!'"

Glee Quotes

Relationships are a lot like flowers. If you find the right seed, put it in good soil, give it water and sunlight, bam. Perfect bud. And then comes winter and the flower dies. But if you tend that garden, spring will come along and that flower will bloom again.

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.
