16 members of the cast gathered on Zoom to talk about their favorite memories of Naya on the 10-year anniversary of her character Santana Lopez coming out as a lesbian on network TV. The reunion was part of the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards, which aired on Thursday (April 8).

Demi Lovato, who played Santana’s girlfriend Dani on Glee, opened the tribute. She said, “I will always cherish the chance I got to play Naya‘s girlfriend, Dani, on Glee. The character Naya played, Santana Lopez, was groundbreaking for closeted queer girls, like I was at the time. Her ambition and accomplishments inspired Latina women all over the world.”

The cast members who then participated in the reunion included Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jessalyn Gilsig, Dot-Marie Jones, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Alex Newell, Lauren Potter, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, and Jenna Ushkowitz.

Some actors from Glee just paid a visit to the Naya Rivera memorial that has been set up at Lake Piru, which is where the actress passed away last week.

Iqbal Theba, who played Principal Figgins on the Fox series, posted a video of the memorial on his Twitter account. He wrote, “Went to see her with my friends @dotmariejones & @BradEllisPiano ❤️NAYA❤️.”

Iqbal was joined at the memorial by Dot-Marie Jones, who played Coach Beiste, and Brad Ellis, who played the glee club’s pianist Brad.

Dot Marie Jones Opens Up About Going To Lake Piru With 'Glee' Cast To Pray For Naya Rivera

Dot Marie Jones, who starred with Naya Rivera on Glee, is opening up about her experience of reuniting with the cast to pray for Naya‘s safe return.

During an interview on The Talk, the actress who played Coach Beiste on the Fox show, revealed that the cast had “been in a group text the night before, and we had planned to go out that night, but it was already coming on 5 o’clock, and the lake from where I live is like 45 minutes away, an hour.”

Dot added that her co-stars decided to visit first thing in the morning instead.

“I told Bridgett [Casteen], my wife, I just said, ‘I gotta go.’ And she said, ‘I know you do.’ And so, I went out by myself – got there probably about six, and cried and prayed and talked, and you know, told her she had to come home, so we could all rest, and especially her mama and her family.”

Dot continued, “The kids being there, and all of us praying and talking, and I know Cory [Monteith] had something to do with it. He had to because, God bless, they found her on the seventh anniversary of Cory’s death, which is unfathomable.”

She also recalled her time with Naya, saying that “I love her so much because she’s the real deal. She’s no BS. She’s not fake. What you see is what you get…her heart and the sincerity of that girl, it’s just, people don’t even know.”

“It just shows how much we all cared and loved that girl,” Dot said of their lake visit. “Rivera was a good kid. We loved her.”

The cast of Glee traveled to the lake to pray for Naya, and her body was found a few hours later.
