E The Un­break­abl Lea Michele

CLEO (Malaysia) - - COVER STORY -

at life. A year round win­ner Au­thor. All- about still talk­ing Ac­tress. Singer. of we’re too. af­ter the con­clu­sion right rea­sons, and for all the Lea Michele,

SCosette in Les Misérables. This was fol­lowed by roles in mu­si­cals such as Rag­time, Fid­dler on the Roof, and Spring Awak­en­ing. It’s also no se­cret that Ryan specif­i­cally wrote the role of Rachel for Lea. The pro­ducer even called her the “heart of the show”, say­ing that Lea’s reel and real per­sona were very much in­ter­twined. Given this, the pres­sure for her to avoid be­ing type­cast was es­pe­cially im­mense. In an in­ter­view with Buz­zfeed, she says: “I think there’s def­i­nitely an is­sue with leav­ing such an iconic show, play­ing such an iconic char­ac­ter for so many sea­sons. I think that’s def­i­nitely an is­sue peo­ple face in this in­dus­try in try­ing to step into another job. So I was very con­scious to make sure my next project was very dif­fer­ent from Rachel Berry.” But there’s one thing she ab­so­lutely wouldn’t do on Scream Queens: scream. “Ryan Mur­phy got me in a booth one day, and I said, ‘I am scream­ing twice, and you’re go­ing to have to use it the en­tire sea­son.’ I’m a singer!” she says on Women’s Health. To our knowl­edge, that’s the only of­fi­cial diva-ish de­mand she’s made through­out her seven years in the lime­light. That’s not a bad record, we think!
