Where You’ve Seen Her: Famous for her role in Broadway musical Spring Awakening, Lea was a household name to anyone who considered themselves a musical buff…So, yeah, we didn’t know a thing about her until she landed on prime time with the hit show Glee (tonight, 8/7c, FOX), a series about a high school glee club. While a high school musical isn’t much of an attention grabber, Lea certainly arouses our interest. And with costars like Naya Rivera and Dianna Argon, we can't resist the urge to get our Gleek on.
Presidential Bathroom Talk: “Looking up at the snipers on the rooftops. Feeling like, at any moment, you could get shot. It was amazing. Using the bathroom was weird. The toilet paper had, like, the White House seal on it.” - GQ
