When Finn put Rachel on the train to New York at the end of last season of Glee, we were both thrilled that she was going to live her dream and sad that it had to be at the cost of her relationship. For us at home, the New York move means Glee will be a whole new show in season four, but we wondered if this will feel like deja vu for actress Lea Michele, a New York native and Broadway star before she made the switch to TV.
“Rachel’s only been to New York once prior to being put on the train,” Michele told VH1 when we caught up with her at San Diego Comic-Con. “So I think I have to let go of everything I know about New York and try to see it through new eyes.”
New really is the word of the season for Gleeks. Darren Criss also told us how much he’s looking forward to shaking things up on the show.
“It’s going to be cool to leave the hallways of McKinley and see a New York apartment and see these characters existing outside of the world of Lima, Ohio,” Criss said. “I’m really excited!”
