Jane Lynch Remembers 'The Greatest Thing' About Naya Rivera

Jane Lynch is remembering Naya Rivera.

During a new interview, the 60-year-old actress opened up about the impact the 33-year-old late actress had on her life.

″The greatest thing about Naya Rivera was that she would be the first one to speak up if something was happening that wasn’t right, that wasn’t fair, that was cruel,″ Jane shared with People.

″If you were a friend of hers, you knew it, you could feel it,″ Jane continued, adding that Naya was “loyal” and “protective.”

Jane continued: ″Just such a fierce force of nature that girl was. It’s a great loss. It’s a great loss for all of us.”

Jane and Naya starred together on Glee, which ran from 2009 to 2015.

Naya went missing after a swimming accident last month at Lake Piru, and her body was unfortunately found five days later on July 13.
