We caught up with Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Cory Monteith and the rest of the cast at the 'Glee' premiere
Lea Michele of FOX's 'Glee'
HitFix: So how was high school for you?
Lea Michele: I had a really great high school experience. I liked it a lot. I mean, I was happy to be out of high school when it was done, but now I get to spend every day in high school hallways, so it's nice.
HitFix: How do you think this version of high school is different from the ones we ordinarily see?
LM: I think that as opposed to other high school shows, it just shows the life of the misfits, the not-cool kids and that's who we are, so it shows high school from that aspect.
HitFix: Since your background is in theater, how are you adapting to working in TV?
LM: It's hard getting new material, so much so fast. But I love the idea. I love the process of television. I love the challenge of focusing on one thing really, really hard and then letting go of it.
HitFix: And give me the pitch to get people to watch the show...
LM: Please f***ing... [she breaks into giggles] I'm so sorry! Anyway, it's amazing. I just can't say anything other than that. It's so funny and it's so fantastic. I'm a huge fan.
"Glee" premieres on Tuesday, May 19 on FOX and will return to FOX in the fall.
