Glee’s Dean Geyer: Meeting Lea Michele While Shirtless Was “Nerve-Racking”
Most people don’t get shirtless within thirty seconds of meeting a co-worker. (At least, we hope they don’t.) Then again, most people’s jobs aren’t as crazy as working on Glee.
Dean Geyer (Brody) tells E! Online that no sooner had he met Lea Michele (Rachel) for the first time than he was asked to strip in front of her. “It was my fourth or fifth audition, and it was nerve-racking," says Dean. "I met everyone and Lea for, like, 30 seconds, and they were like, 'Can we have your shirt off, please.'" But, uh, can you blame them?
So this sounds like an awkward way to meet someone, but Dean says it helped him relax when it came time to shoot the season premiere’s shower scene. "It was good that we got to play around with it during the audition," Geyer says. "It really set the tone for the day and set the chemistry for me and Lea."
Dean admits that his sexy scenes with Rachel have led to some angry tweets from a few none-too-pleased Finchel fans. However, Dean is okay that’s he’s the one who’s causing some trouble on the show. "I don't mind being the person who gets to mix things up," he says with a smile.
And you know what we don’t mind? Seeing him sans shirt. C’mon, Ryan Murphy — we need a few more Brody shower scenes, pronto. (And if you wanted to throw a bath scene in there for variety — well, that would be just fine, too.)
