This Glee Actress Was Terrified To Even Look Lea Michele In The Eye!


One other Glee alum is sharing her expertise of sharing the display screen with the large, unhealthy Rachel Berry.

Clearly at this level we’ve heard loads of horror tales about Lea Michele‘s diva conduct on the set of the musical sequence and past. The worst got here from Samantha Ware, who infamously accused the Cannonball singer of “racially motivated abuse” that culminated in a risk to “s**t in my wig.” Different castmates appeared to agree with the feelings — even Heather Morris called her “unpleasant” to work with!

So what was it like for somebody who got here in earlier within the sequence and solely needed to work together together with her a bit of? STILL TERRIFYING!

That’s what Lindsay Pearce remembers! As one of many runners up on The Glee Undertaking, she gained a 2-episode arc on Season 3 of the Fox hit, enjoying Concord, a really Rachel Berryesque character whom the actual Rachel couldn’t stand.

Of the present’s most important solid, Lindsay principally solely acted with Lea and Chris Colfer. In a brand new interview printed on Monday, the stage vet informed Insider about her experiences again within the day, three years earlier than Samantha Ware’s ordeal.

Chris, she remembers, “was really sweet” and “excited” to behave together with her, asking all concerning the competitors, whether or not she’d gained. Lea, then again… made her “nervous.” That’s possibly placing it mildly? The actress recollects:

“I remember when Lea came in, and I was like, ‘Don’t talk to her. Don’t even look in her direction. Leave her alone.’ Because she’s the star of the show.”

Proper, as a result of she was the star. And never as a result of she was scary. Ha! The distinction between how she knew to work together with Colfer and Michele kiiiiinda says all of it, doesn’t it?

Staying away from Lea was most likely a good suggestion for Lindsay particularly. Casting her as a Rachel Berry sort was possible as a result of she’s such a Lea Michele sort IRL. Actually, she went on to get some very Lea roles, together with one the On My Approach songstress at all times needed: enjoying the lead position of witch Elphaba within the Broadway manufacturing of Depraved! And as we all know, being in a Broadway position that Lea needs isn’t the most secure place career-wise! Just ask Beanie Feldstein, proper? Ha!

Lindsay went on to star within the Imply Ladies musical however not taking after Lea — she performed non-mean woman BFF Janis Sarkisian! So suck on that!
