Lea Michele, 28, was no Rachel Berry on the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, but that didn’t stop her fans from appreciating her darker new role. The versatile actress clearly has a big future ahead of her. She can certainly pull off many facades, and Twitter users agree!
‘Sons Of Anarchy’: Lea Michele Guest Stars — Fans Freak Out On Twitter
Lea’s SOA character, Gertie, is a truck-stop diner waitress — very far from the Lea we’re used to! In one scene, Gemma (Katey Sagal) shares a smoke with Gertie and they have a heart to heart, finding out they’re oddly similar.
Lea did an amazing job in this dramatic new role, which leads us to believe she is fully capable of taking on more roles like this. Here are the latest tweets from Sons of Anarchy fans, who are also raving over Lea’s guest-starring role!

‘SOA’ Exec: Everything Rachel Berry Is, ‘This Woman Isn’t’
The producers and stars on SOA even gushed about Lea’s fantastic performance!
“She brought something totally different from Rachel. I am so excited! I remember seeing her in Spring Awakening when she was just a Broadway actress, and I knew there was a lot deeper actor there then what we have been able to use before or what we have seen on Glee,” Sons of Anarchy executive producer, Paris Barclay EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com.
“She has a completely different part then Rachel, everything Rachel is, this women isn’t,” Paris said. “I mean she is a down home regular woman who is kind of grumpy and she doesn’t care about her appearance. She smokes! I mean, Rachel smoking, I don’t think Rachel smoking would ever happen.”
Hopefully we’ll be seeing more roles like this for Lea in the very near future!
