  • Is that a recent picture? Her face looks um…… refreshed. I don’t think she really needed it either.

    • I worked on her film. She actually “refreshed her face” for the character. It was all temporary.

  • Looking forward to it, loved her on Glee. It would’ve been hilarious if the widow character was anything like Terri Schuester.
