With only 3 more Glee episodes to film, before the series is done for good, Lea Michele told Jimmy Kimmel on his late night talk show Wednesday night, that things are starting to get emotional.
“I’ve thoroughly warned everyone in my life. Everyone’s prepared for a possible total breakdown,” Lea laughed, “But we’re good!”
Maybe not the rest of the cast, however! The tears have already begun to flow, reports Lea.
“I was doing a scene the other day with the original little group—Chris Colfer, Jenna [Ushkowitz], Kevin [McHale], Amber [Riley]—we were in the choir room and I was giving some very emotional speech and I started to cry and Jenna started to cry and we were like, ‘…don’t you start!’ and literally yelling at each other to not get emotional.”
“It’s gonna be tough,” Lea added. “What’s so crazy is that we’re so in the thick of it right now, even still, with 3 left–musical numbers and circus acts and crazy stuff–it’s hard to think, like, ‘Oh, this is going to be done soon!'”
The Frozen song “Let it Go,” served as the big ender on the first episode. Lea told a funny story about how super nervous she was to sing the iconic song. There was fake snow falling–and after swallowing some, she vomited! Oops. The young children of crew members who were on set to watch were pretty excited, despite the mishap. Some of the little ones actually believed she was the Frozen princess! “It was awesome!” Lea said.
In another segment, Lea talked excitedly about The Bachelor. She wanted every single detail of Jimmy Kimmel’s experience appearing on the show (If you watched Monday’s edition, you saw Jimmy crash several of Chris Soule’s dates.) Lea is a huge Bachelor fan.
Glee airs on Fridays at 9 pm on FOX, with the two hour SERIES finale set for March 20.
