Raised in suburban New Jersey, Lea Michele (born Lea Michele Safarti on August 29, 1987) always dreamt of being a start of the stage — much like the Glee character she would eventually play. As a child, she appeared in several Broadway productions, including Les Miserables and Ragtime. She got her big break in 2006 when she snagged the leading role in Duncan Sheik’s coming-of-age Broadway musical Spring Awakening, but it wasn’t until she was cast as Rachel Berry on FOX’s Glee in 2009 that she became a household name.
