Happy birthday, Lea Michele! The former ‘Glee’ star and future Scream Queen is turning 29 years-old today, August 29! We were so bummed that ‘Glee’ ended, but thrilled when Lea picked up a new project. Do you think her co-stars are throwing her a big bash?
Lea Michele is turning 29 years-old today, August 29! We always forget that those kids from McKinley High weren’t actually teenagers! Lea’s a Broadway superstar and soon to be horror hottie when Scream Queens premieres. Keep your fingers crossed that she’s the Final Girl! We hope Lea’s having the best day ever, and that her huge group of friends and cast members does something extra special for her!
Lea’s truly got a spectacular voice, and she was able to show it off one last time in the final season of Glee this past year. Like any true Broadway diva, Lea made sure to go out on top when the finale rolled around; we’re absolutely never going to forget the amazing Ms. Berry!
When Glee wrapped, Lea took something special with her: Finn’s jersey that hung in the choir room. Lea had to deal with unimaginable death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, who played the high school’s football star — and also had to act out her grief onscreen when they had the character pass away as well. We can’t imagine what Lea went through, but without Glee, she would never have met Cory, either. It’s clear that she recognized how special this experience was to her.
Now Lea’s moved on to something totally different — starring on Ryan Murphy‘s horror series Scream Queens! Lea’s joined a huge cast full of totally awesome ladies who are trying fight off a serial killer on their college campus. We’re so excited for this show to start; Lea’s character is such a departure from her usual gorgeous self. Who wouldn’t want to see a show where Lea’s rocking a huge brace and some frumpy sweaters? Count us in!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Lea a happy birthday in the comments!
