Jane Lynch Dishes on Glee Character

at . Comments

Following May's series premiere of Glee (which aired again last week), the show officially kicks off its first full season tonight.

Among the numerous characters we love on the Fox series - led by Lea Michele's gorgeous, talented Rachel Berry - none is funnier than cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.

"She's really mean," actress Jane Lynch told Zap2It of her hilarious character. "Especially what I do to poor Quinn, Dianna [Agron's] character. I feel terrible. I hug her before each day."

Sylvester is displeased with the attention the school's glee club begins to receive, especially when it bumps her squad off its pedestal.

The result is a serious of hilarious one-liners and actions that can be construed as rather underhanded. Lynch says that will be a constant theme with Sue.

"We're never going to completely redeem her, but there is a touch of redemption. [Co-creator Ryan Murphy] said to me after this one episode, 'You've now bought yourself eight or nine more episodes of heinous behavior...' I admire her shamelessness and her entitlement.. What other people do around here doesn't ever affect her. She stays exactly how she is, and I love that about her."

Glee airs Wednesday nights on Fox.

Glee Quotes

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?


Quinn always was a genius slapper.
