Lea Michele (born August 29, 1986) is an American stage and television actress and singer, who is known for her roles in Broadway musicals, particularly for her starring role as Wendla in Spring Awakening. Lea currently stars in Glee as Rachel Berry.
She’s so much more than just a television star, and Lea Michele offered some insight into her health and beauty regimen in a new Organic Spa feature.
Career-wise, the “Glee” gal hasn’t forgotten her Manhattan stage roots even though her current gig is on the West Coast- “I absolutely loved working on Broadway and living in New York. I definitely miss it sometimes. But right now I’m loving working on Glee and living in LA. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’ve sort of become a California girl! I would love to go back to Broadway at some point though and do either a musical or play.”
Sunday (July 13) marked one year since Cory Monteith passed away, and Lea Michele and her “Glee” costars all shared touching Twitter tributes on the somber occasion.
The “Brunette Ambition” babe, who was dating Monteith at the time of his death, wrote, “We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always. ❤,” along with a photo of her late friend.
