Heather Morris Reflects On The Importance of Brittany & Santana's Relationship, Almost A Month After Naya Rivera's Death

Heather Morris is looking back on her fondest memories of Naya Rivera and focused on the importance of Glee‘s Brittany and Santana relationship in a new video.

“I have been feeling very heavy lately. I’ve been feeling this like aching in my heart to connect with my fans, to connect with everybody who’s been feeling a little lost and confused during this time,” Heather first started her video before talking about Brittana.

“I don’t need to explain what the importance of Santana and Brittany’s relationship was to all of you who are watching, because most of you felt like it was your gateway into your current life. Most of you felt like it was an inspiration to become your best self,” she shared, adding, “I want you to know that that was never lost on me. It was never lost on Naya.”

Heather continued, “We both knew how special that was. I think she knew a little bit more than I did. I really felt it a lot later with all the messages and all the people reaching out. and I knew the writers also knew that as well. They were basically writing for the fans.”

“I felt a really deep need to connect to all of you right now because I just know how important our relationship was to you all. And I know a lot of you feel very lost and very far away from what happened, a maybe a bit confused. And that’s completely normal,” she went on. “But I felt like it owed it to you guys because I think the fans were such a huge impact on our storyline and I want to thank you all for being such advocates and so supportive of Santana and Brittany’s relationship, because without you guys it never would have existed.”

“You guys helped create something for the writers and, for Naya and I, that made an impact that will last for a lifetime and beyond then. So I want to thank everyone here watching and I want to thank all the fans for your love and support,” Heather said, in a heartfelt thank you to fans. “I want you to know that we are all here with you, that grief looks different on everybody and I want you to be gentle and kind to yourself during this time. I think many of you may feel very far away and I hope this message will help you feel closer.”

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

Just recently, Heather opened up about her grief in another personal video to fans on social media. See it here…

Glee's Amber Riley Says Naya Rivera & Cory Monteith's Names Every Day to Honor Their Lives

Amber Riley has written another touching tribute for her late Glee co-star Naya Rivera, who drowned in California’s Lake Piru after heroically saving her son’s life.

In the tribute that Amber posted to Instagram on Thursday (July 23), she said she says both Naya and their late co-star Cory Monteith‘s names every day to honor their lives.

“I’m so mad the world will never see how high you could have soared. Her brain was brilliant. She was smart and as quick as a whip. Always had me in stitches, we would be in tears laughing so hard at one another,” Amber said. “There was never competition, or shade, or intimidation with us. Just pure adoration and mutual respect. You deserved better. You were so much more than just this show. Your talent outshined us all so many times!”

“Favorite Naya Moment: tour bus to London, Naya greasing her scalp with Doo Gro oil, a plastic cap and a silk bonnet 😂 my sister said ‘oh Naya you blackity black black’ we burst out into laughter! We needed it too because we just wanted to get home to our families. We were alike in that way. We love hard, and protect our own, and we don’t take no shit from anyone (Kevin is literally the byproduct of US 😂) We can either slice you with our words, or bring you comfort with that same breath. Dealer’s choice. I say your name everyday and hold you in my heart, just like I do Cory,” she continued.
