Jane Lynch doesn’t ”want to face” the end of Glee. The award-winning actress – who plays sports coach-turned-principal of McKinley High School, Sue Sylvester – has admitted there were a lot of ”waterworks” when the cast wrapped up filming last Saturday for the long-standing TV show.
She said: ”It was waterworks. There are some takes I’m sure they can’t use because we were all weeping. It was hard to get through… (It is) unreal. Surreal and unreal. I can’t believe it’s over. It hasn’t hit me yet. It’s been one of the most wonderful experiences of my life.”
The 54-year-old actress has also praised the FOX show for helping to remove some of the stigma around gender transitions. In series six, Coach Beiste (played by Dot-Marie Jones) makes a transition from a woman to a man and Jane believes it was particularly ”special” storyline of the show.
She added to People magazine: ”Those scenes, for me, will go down as some of the most special…Anything that’s got stigma around it that shouldn’t… like deciding how you want to live your life as whatever sex you want to be – (that’s) nobody’s business but theirs. And I love that he [Glee creator Ryan Murphy] took it on.”
