You were on Broadway before you starred as Rachel Berry on Glee. What kind of role would it take to bring you back to Broadway?
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.
Who inspires you personally? Professionally?
My mother inspires me personally every day. She is so beautiful inside and out.
Professionally, there are so many people I look up to. I believe personal and professional role models are very important and always keep you inspired.
I love Barbra [Streisand]! I also love Jennifer Lawrence. I think she’s an amazing actress and a very strong and outspoken women. Those are the kind of women who I admire so much.
This blog is a gift from all of us to Lea. She’s had a fantastic year between Louder, Glee, and Brunette Ambition. She’s been such an inspiration to a lot of us through everything this year and we wanted to do something for her.
So, we really need your help and involvement.
The idea is to submit anything you want, whether it’s a video, a photoset, a graphic, you name it. The cut off to submit is Friday, August 29 at midnight so that way we have all day to organize everything and then send the link to Lea on twitter :)
We’ll reblog anything you make as well! If you want us to see what you’ve made so we can reblog it (or if you don’t want to submit), tag your graphics, photosets, etc. as happybdaylea.
- Include your name, country when you submit (or your tumblr url whatever you’re comfortable with tbh)
- If it’s just a message, send it through our askbox and we will take care of the rest.
- You can submit as many things as you want, but not of the same thing. Please, please, please do not spam us.
- Also, if you see that we didn’t receive your submission, just tell us and if we didn’t get it, send it again. We want everyone to feel included :)
