You might know her best as charming Cheerios coach Sue Sylvester, but Jane Lynch has been tearing up our TV and cinema screens for decades at this stage and, in honour of her efforts, she's just nabbed star number 2,505 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy was on hand to support the actress at the big unveiling yesterday and didn't hold back when singing her praises. "She is the hardest-working person on the set" Murphy said, "she makes everybody better and everybody happier. She is one of the comedy greats in our business - a true class act."
Lynch returns to TV screens with Glee in just a few weeks when the show makes its delayed return following the death of actor Cory Monteith. Lynch told Variety that the planned tribute episode was among the most moving of all the scripts she's ever read. "I don't think you fill a void. We're going to honour his memory in our third episode of the season, one of the most beautiful things I've ever read written by Ryan and Brad [Falchuk] and Ian [Brennan], the three writers who wrote the first season who are the beating heart of this show" she said.
"Speaking of beating hearts, Cory was, in life and his character, the most empathetic, heart-centered person I've ever met. And he's going to be missed big time."
