Jessica Sanchez was on the Glee set yesterday (April 15) for the first time when she tweeted, “Oh my gosh. Walking through the sets makes everything so real…”
Jessica is set to play Frida Romero, the legendary lead singer of the Hoosierdaddies, the glee club set to face off against New Directions in the Regionals episode. The competition will be the centerpiece of the Glee finale, airing on FOX Thursday May 9.
While Jessica got the set tour yesterday, she met some of the cast members today. “….haven’t worked with the cast of glee but both sides are so humble and fun to interact with already :)!!!” Jessica tweeted excitedly.
After taking photos with cast members Darren Criss (Blaine), Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Matthew Morrison (Will), and meeting Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Alex Newell (Unique) and Blake Jenner (Ryder) she tweeted, “@jennaushkowitz @darrencriss @anew92 @matt_morrison @blake_jenner You guys were the sweetest yesterday!! Can’t wait for next week!! :)”
I’m guessing that the Regionals competition will be shot next week. Expect LOTS of spoilers. Those scenes are taped in front of a slew of extras, hired to play audience members. Extras LOVE to tweet photos and spoilers! So do their friends and family.
