(On her audition for Glee)
Lea: My first audition was a disaster. First, I went in and the piano player messed up my song. I got so nervous and freaked out. Then they were laughing at the scene that in my mind was serious, and so then I turned to everyone at the table, and I was like, "That wasn't supposed to be funny. That was my serious moment. Now I'm gonna do it again and I want you all to cry!" And then they kept laughing, and so I left and I thought it went terribly. Little did I know throughout my audition I was kinda doing a lot of what was and became Rachel Berry.
