Actress Lea Michelle says getting a role in “Scream Queens” was one of the best moments of her life.
The 30-year-old actress, who was not sure about her next project after her role on “Glee” came to an end, said she was thrilled to work with Ryan Murphy, reported Female First.
“I didn’t know I was playing Hester until the last season of ‘Glee’, and Ryan called me and it was one of the best moments of my life, because here I was thinking that ‘Glee’ was ending and not quite sure what was next.
“And to get that call saying, ‘I’m writing another part for you. You’re in a neck brace, and you’re going to work along with Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts,’ I pinched myself. I have so many things that I want to do, and getting to play a darker role like this was obviously on my list,” Michelle said.

The actress said she would always be grateful to Murphy, who is the creator of both the shows, for believing she could tackle the role as Hester.
“There’s definitely a part of me that feels like this is something that I can do and do well, but the fact that Ryan saw this in me — I wear no make-up. I don’t even put a brush through my hair before playing this character.
“But I’m grateful for that because it’s helped me to grow so much. I would be happy to work with him for the rest of my life. To get another call saying, ‘This is what we’re doing’.”
