The starlet told marieclaire.co.uk they was so excited about visiting the Wicked set, they looked for something they could take home…
It’s no secret Lea Michele is a huge Broadway fan. But when we met up with the Glee starlet, she let slip to marieclaire.co.uk that the cast were so excited to film the show on the Wicked stage in New York, that they ran around looking for things to steal.
Speaking of the Glee cast’s ‘amazing’ time in NYC, Lea giggled her way through the story, about looking for mementos to snatch from the famous set.
‘We were crazy,’ she laughed. ‘We kept running around and looking for things to steal, and we couldn’t because everything was massive or chained down – probably they knew we were coming!’
The actress and her co-star Chris Colfer also opened up on their ‘fantastic’ outings around Europe during the Glee tour – and how Chris astounded guides at the Tower of London with his historical knowledge.
‘He was saying all these things and the tour guide was amazed – I think he was kind of freaked out – he was like “how do you know all this?”’ Lea laughed.
But the part Chris looked forward to most? Going to Dublin.
‘I’m going to find myself a leprechaun, and I’m going to kidnap him and take him back with me to the states,’ he joked.
‘I’m very Irish, my family is all Irish and St Patrick’s Day in my house is crazy, so I’m excited to like go and see my heritage and find a leprechaun.’
During the interview, the Glee pair also let us in on their favourite show moments, what’s in store for season three, and how they’ve never let the pressure of Hollywood get them down.
