Lea Michele Smokes a Cigarette on Sons of Anarchy Set (PHOTOS)
Lea Michele is currently shooting her guest spot for an upcoming episode of Sons of Anarchy, and new photos of the actress on the California set prove to us that her SoA character, Gertie, is nothing like singing sensation Rachel Berry. Instead, Gertie is described as a “empathetic truck stop waitress and single mother who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time,” and we’re excited to see what Lea does with this part.
In photos from July 29, we see Lea sitting on a bench in a waitress’s uniform sharing a cigarette with Katey Sagal’s Gemma as they film a scene. Like we said, Lea is certainly pushing herself with this part, and she looks great in character.
However, not everyone is on board with Lea’s latest endeavor. A fan tweeted SoA creator Kurt Sutter after Lea was cast questioning the addition of the “Glee girl” and stating that the news “sucks” — but Kurt was quick to stand up for Lea, tweeting back, “Look beyond the song and dance. The kid has chops.”
Check out more photos of Lea filming and smoking a cigarette, and don’t forget to watch her episode when it airs on October 14 at 9 p.m. ET on FX.
