'Glee' Fans Share Why They Fell in Love with Naya Rivera as Santana on The Show

Fans are sending out positive thoughts after it was reported that Naya Rivera had gone missing during a boating trip.

On Wednesday night (July 8), fans took to Twitter to pray that the 33-year-old Glee actress is found safe and alive after her son Josey, 4, was found alone in a boat on Lake Piru. He told authorities that she went into the water and never came back up.

Glee fans also took the opportunity to share how much Naya‘s portrayal as Santana Lopez on the show helped them learn about acceptance and who they are.

“Dude I’m not even kidding Santana Lopez’s story arc on glee was a huge reason and inspiration coming out, Naya Rivera portrayed that so beautifully and she’s always been an ally to the LGBTQIA community and an inspiration, praying they find her alive and for her baby son,” one fan wrote.
