Would Lea Michele Do a Glee Spinoff?!

Season 6 of Glee will focus entirely on the show’s cast members in New York City, which means Lea Michele will be front and center in the storyline. But, would the actress be willing to take on a whole show devoted to her character, Rachel Berry?!

“Let’s do it!” she told Seventeen, when asked if she’d be interested in a spinoff. “I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway.”

The 27-year-old famously made the decision to return to work on the hit Fox show just weeks after her costar, and real life boyfriend, Cory Monteith, passed away over the summer. In the mag’s April issue, she reiterated her reasoning behind throwing herself back into work. “[The Glee cast] is the greatest group of people I have ever met in my entire life!” she gushed. “We all lost Cory. I didn’t think for one minute that being away from them is what I wanted. Being on the set of Glee is no more difficult than being at home and finding [Cory’s] slippers under the bed. We had a life and a job together — it goes with you everywhere you go. You can’t get away from grief. So I might as well be surrounded by the people I love and get to lean on them.”

As she’s done several times since the actor’s tragic drug overdose, Lea didn’t hold back from talking about the relationship she had with her costar. “I only have happy memories of Cory,” she said. “He was not his addiction — unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I love every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.”
