Say it ain’t so!
While Glee fans fell in love with Ashley Fink’s character Lauren in the show’s second season, creator Ryan Murphy seemed to have different plans.
In the season three premiere, Lauren quit New Directions and Gleeks haven’t heard from her since!
That is, until now!
"It is what it is. Lauren's somewhere in that school, she's just not on camera or being talked about [laughs]. She's involved in activities that aren't televised."
LOLz, at least she can keep a sense of humor about it all…even after the show’s creator promised she’d return and STILL hasn’t followed through!
Still, there seems to be no hard feelings as Ashley explains:
"Of course I miss me on Glee. I miss everybody. I miss the fun experience that show is. But Glee is very much a fly by the seat of your pants [operation] in the way that best laid plans never quite come together. They have so many [characters] to take care of and I think once they made the decision that all these characters were going to graduate, it shifted the way this season was going to go. I haven't heard anything from Ryan, but I visited [while they were filming] prom, so I got to see everybody, which was great."
Though no longer on the show, Ashley has remained SUPER supportive of her former Glee castmates, most recently attending the premiere of Chris Colfer’s film Struck By Lightning, which he wrote as well as starred in!
We miss Lauren on Glee, but maybe there's still hope she might pop up next season!!!
