Lea Michele from Glee on Being Like Rachel Berry

Glee star Lea Michele made her Broadway debut in Les Miserables when she was just nine years old. Before she was old enough to legally drink, she had been nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical for Spring Awakening. And now, at 23, she’s one of the Screen Actor’s Guild Ensemble in a Comedy winners for Glee.

We assumed that being a busy actress since childhood probably meant that Lea didn’t have the kind of high school experience that her character Rachel Berry enjoys at McKinley High. But we were wrong. At a recent event that we filmed for the Archive of American Television, Lea told us about her pretty normal teen years, and the personality trait she shares with Rachel.

  1. I think it's great when you share traits with the character you portray, especially when it gives you the insight you need to make that character so powerful.
