I am going to miss me some Amber Riley! Tell me this isn’t true. The 26-year-old actress – who plays Mercedes Jones in the musical TV show Glee – has filmed her final scene for the series as her character is graduating from high school, and is now looking forward to a “summer vacation.”
She wrote on twitter: “That’s a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life, the only thing I’ve known day in and day out for three years. I’m going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday! I have so many brothers and sisters now :) But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! SCHOOL’S OUT Glee Kids! Let’s play! (sic)”
The majority of the cast was on the set yesterday (May 9) for the last day of shooting. Actress Lea Michele and actor Cory Monteith were spotted filming scenes for the season finale of Glee in Los Angeles. In the episode, all the classmates say goodbye to Rachel as she takes a train and leaves Finn.
Dianna Agron also tweeted in what looked to be a farewell to the show. Check out their tweets…
I honestly hope that Amber Riley isn’t gone from the show. That voice! Dianna was great too, but what more can you really do with her character?
