The cast of Glee reunited to pay tribute to late co-star Naya Rivera and you can watch the video right here!

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. Notably absent were Lea Michele and Dianna Agron.

Jessalyn Gilsig Replaces Shiri Appleby in Disney+ Series 'Big Shot'

Jessalyn Gilsig has landed the lead role in the upcoming Disney+ series Big Shot, replacing Shiri Appleby.

Shiri was cast opposite John Stamos a few months ago, but the role has been retooled and needed to be recast.

Big Shot follows “a temperamental college basketball coach (Stamos) who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school.”

Jessalyn will play “Holly, the school’s good-humored and down-to-earth assistant basketball coach.” Deadline reports that the role has “evolved to be more of a contemporary to Stamos’ Marvin — and potential love interest for him down the road — leading to the recasting.”

You might recognize Jessalyn from her work on shows like Glee, Scandal, Nip/Tuck, and Vikings.

“I had a beard before this show, so I’m happy,” Travis said during the panel (via HuffPo). “I’m not a dresser-upper. My publicist got me this shirt and I have to wear it. I think it adds so much. This show is so good that it gets some reality involved.”

FYI: Travis wearing a Life/After/Denim shirt.

Travis Fimmel & Katheryn Winnick: 'Vikings' Screening Reception!

Travis Fimmel shows off his growing beard while attending a screening reception for his new show Vikings held at Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre on Friday (June 7) in North Hollywood, Calif.

The 33-year-old Aussie actor was joined by his co-stars Katheryn Winnick, George Blagden, Jessalyn Gilsig, and Clive Standen.

Vikings centers on the “sagas of Ragnar Lothbrok’s band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes.”

“[Travis] didn’t try to be a Viking, he had this deep Aussie accent, but he had depth, stillness and he believed what he was saying. Both myself and the director saw something, we had one of THOSE moments,” the show’s creator Michael Hirst recently shared.
