The tragic death of Cory Monteith earlier this year left Gleeks wondering what would become of the best TV show since anything EVER, and last week the show’s creator Ryan Murphy answered the question with the answer we were all dreading, as he confirmed that season six would sadly be the final series at McKinley High.
Since the news broke, we’ve been in a bit of a state of panic wondering what an earth would become of Rachel and co (and also a bit miffed that it won’t be acceptable to chuck slushies around anymore), but one gal we’re not too worried about is Naya Rivera, who seems pretty at ease about the conclusion of the show.
Talking at the ELLE Annual Women of Hollywood celebration a couple of nights ago, Naya, who plays Santana in the show, spoke about how happy she is to have been part of such an amazing project, but after the dramatic shake-up with the loss of Cory, the cast need to move on to new things.
“I think we’ve had a really good run on the show. I think that all good things must come to an end, so whenever that comes to an end, I’ll just be grateful that I was even on it.”
Has anyone got a tissue we could use? We've errrr.... got something in our eye. SOB.
Naya also spoke about her part in the emotional and moving tribute episode which was filmed to commemorate the life of Cory, who played Finn Hudson since the early days of Glee.
“It was really difficult, it brought tears to my eyes,” she said, talking about her performance of If I Die Young in the ep. It was definitely tough, but all in all, I think it was a great episode. I’m really proud of everybody.”
Trying something a bit different from strutting round in her cheerleading uniform to belt out a few classics, Naya will sono be releasing her first solo artist track, Sorry, which features the talents of her boyf Big Sean too.
Are you gutted about Glee finally coming to an end, or do you think it’s the right time? Will you miss Naya playing Santana?
