Jane Lynch Says Such Sweet Things About Late Naya Rivera in Touching Tribute

It has been almost one month since the tragic passing of Naya Rivera, and her former Glee co-star Jane Lynch had some lovely things to say about her today.

“I think that one of the things that kind of got lost when we were doing the show was what a force she was because there were so many talented people,” Jane said during a Today show appearance. “She was one of those people—she wasn’t in every scene, but when she was…she just blew everybody away.”

Jane continued, “I had three-page monologues, so did she. It took me a week to get mine. She would do them right off the bat and they would be changing them and she had no problem with it.”

“My niece Megan was very close with Naya and Megan always said that, with Naya, you felt like somebody had your back. She was somebody who wasn’t going to let anybody mess with you. She was a great advocate and loved the fact that she and Heather Morris had the lesbian relationship on the show and how much that meant to so many young people,” Jane said. If you missed it, Megan‘s tribute to Naya went viral after her death.

“It’s just gut-wrenching and heart-breaking that she’s gone,” Jane continued.
