Lea Michele Speaks on "Rachel's Journey" on Glee

by at . Comments

She may have starred in Spring Awakening, a Tony Award-winning play on Broadway, but nothing coud have prepared Lea Michele for Glee.

The show is the most buzzed-about, critically-praised, fun-loving hour on television - and Michele's Rachel Berry is at the center of almost every episode.

The adorable young star has handled the attention well, however, and she gave TV Guide Magazine a preview of what's to come for her character in an interview this week:

On Rachel's future: What I have learned is just how much this is Rachel’s journey to becoming a team player and learning who she is within this group. You look at Rachel and realize that she is not someone who needs help speaking her mind. This Glee club allows all of the kids to use their voice and let the voice inside of them come out.

On upcoming scenes/duets: I have wonderful scenes and storylines with Chris Colfer. I beg them to write stuff between me and Kurt because I think he is so talented. When you are acting opposite someone who is really good, it’s like you’re eating the best meal or playing an incredible tennis match. I love working with him.

And Amber Riley, I have gotten to sing some incredible songs with her. She gives me the chills. I praise the ground she walks on, she is so gifted. We did “Halo” together, and we actually did a Barbra Streisand-Celine Dion song that they didn’t end up using on the show.

That's very sad to hear. But take a look at our Glee music section to see which singles were used on the show and to purchase them off iTunes!

Glee Quotes

Rachel: This is what I wanted!
Sam: No, what you wanted was a second chance to get it right and Carmen just gave it to you. If you throw all that away you're going to be making the same mistake all over again

Finn: I seem to recall a rumor about a certain cheerleading coach at this school who once took horse estrogen and posed for Penthouse back in the day. So maybe I can just track that down and make a few copies and sell those to raise money for Regionals.
Sue: That's nothing but a rumor. But if that rumor were true, my Penthouse centerfold so groundbreaking that it completely redefined the term 'hirsute,' and gave birth unto these United States a pose so limber they named it the Regal American Not-So-Bald Spread Eagle, I promise you, my friend, you would never find it.
