Becca Tobin Remembers How Kind Naya Rivera Was in Touching Tribute

Becca Tobin is looking back on her time with Naya Rivera, just hours after it was revealed the actress died in a tragic drowning accident on Lake Piru in California last week.

“Naya was insanely talented, breathtakingly gorgeous, and one of the wittiest people I’ve ever met, but the legacy she left behind for me is her kindness,” the 34-year-old actress shared on her Instagram.

Becca remembered how Naya welcomed her to the cast without any reservations when she joined in season three.

“I joined the cast of Glee in the third season and as the newcomer, I was intimidated and terrified. The cast was already such a tight-knit group who had been working incredibly hard together for over three years to make it a hit show and I never expected any of them to have time for me,” she wrote. “To my surprise, Naya, one of the most beloved by the rest of the cast (and the entire world), showed me instant warmth and kindness.”

Becca continues, “She invited me to parties and gatherings and was always there to give advice. She was a superstar who had nothing to gain from being kind to the new girl, but she was and that changed this new girl’s entire experience on that show.”

“I will forever be grateful to that beautiful human. My heart goes out to her family and her sweet boy. ❤️”
