Lea Michele Landed Role by Luck
She never meant to be an actress…

She’s now been in the business since she was a young child, but she admitted it almost didn’t happen.
"It was a joke, I just went to support my friend,” Lea explained. “But I auditioned and I got it. It was total luck.
“At that point, I wanted to work as a waiter or in a grocery store - I had that fake grocery store with the toy food and money. I was 8 years old - but I auditioned for Broadway and I got it.
“And I went from show to show until I came out to Los Angeles when I was 21.”
The actress- who plays Rachel in the hit comedy-musical also revealed that she isn’t much of a fan of LA where Glee is filmed, saying:
“I miss [New York]…. I feel like you can't be yourself in Los Angeles. It's very pretty when you visit, but if you're a real New Yorker, it's hard to live in Los Angeles.”
