"There’s a lot of careers that I respect and admire, but more than copying someone’s career I would like for others to be inspired by what I’ve achieved with time."
And then with Lea Michele, we heard she was interested from our executive producer and director Paris Barclay, who knew her from Glee and working together with Ryan Murphy [creator of Glee and FX’s American Horror Story]. And so it all sort of worked out. We cast her outside the box. She plays a truck stop waitress. You know, tough, tank top, not a smidge of makeup on her. She completely embraced what the show was all about. It’s a show that people want to play different parts on.
What do you think is your best physical attribute?
I’ve been told that my butt is quite special. I would agree.
My cast will tell you, “Seeing Lea at a club is like seeing a unicorn!”
