@msleamichele A toast to the most amazing trip ever! 🇮🇹❤️💋 

Ciao Italy! You are so beautiful! I’m so happy to be here! 🇮🇹

I did perform in a show on Broadway, called Spring Awakening, before I was on Glee, that was quite dark in what I had to do every night. When that was done, it was so challenging; I was so happy to do Glee, because it was so happy. Now I think I’m ready again to try some more challenging and possibly darker roles. I actually just got something that I’m very excited about, although I can’t say what it is. But it is starting to go down a different path, trying different things. Comedy is what I love. I grew up loving women like Lucille Ball and Barbra Streisand, so that’s really what I love to do. But as an actor, I think it’s so important to always try different things. It’s like strengthening your muscles as an actor.
