Glee's Dean Geyer Defends Lea Michele, Says She Was the 'Most Friendly' of All the Cast

Glee actor Dean Geyer is speaking out about the allegations against Lea Michele and his experience working alongside her on the set of Glee.

Dean portrayed Brody Weston, the boyfriend of Lea‘s character, from 2012-2013.

Lea is still one of my favorite co-stars that I have had the pleasure of working with. She is extremely hard working and super fun to be around,” Dean told DailyMail. “Her work ethic is so strong it forces you to always be on top of your game, and that’s something I looked forward to everyday on set. I definitely learned a lot.”

He added, “When jumping onto a hugely successful and established show like Glee, I went into it expecting to be known as the ‘new guy’ for at least a month, but that wasn’t the case at all. I almost immediately felt welcomed, and to be totally honest, out of everyone, Lea was the most friendly to me.”

He continued, “I can only speak for myself and my own experience, but from what I saw during my time on set, there was nothing but professionalism and a genuine sense of community amongst the cast and crew.”

“No one showed any signs of discomfort while Lea was on set. If I’m basing my opinion off my season, there definitely shouldn’t be a reason for a backlash,” Dean said.

Another Glee cast member just defended Lea as well.
