Can you imagine Glee without Naya Rivera as Santana or Jane Lynch as Sue? We can’t either — but we came thisclose to being deprived of seeing these amazing women on Glee.
Jane tells Huffington Post that, even as recently as her late 30s, she was ready to give up on acting. "I must have been 37 or 38 at the time. Don't get me wrong — I had a pretty nice career going. I was making a good living doing a lot of voiceover work for radio,” Jane says, now 52. “But I just wasn't able to break through to the next level."
It wasn’t until 2000 — when she landed a role in the mockumentary film Best in Show— that things finally started to change. “That's the thing that kind of blew the doors open for my career,” she says. Since then, of course, Jane has been everywhere, both on the small screen on Glee and in movie theaters with films like Wreck-It Ralph, which opens today.
