In this new interview for THR, three-time Emmy nominee actress Kate Burton talks how it was working with Lea back in Spring Awaking:
Let’s jump to Broadway. You played mom to Jonathan Groff, Skyler Astin and Lea Michele in Spring Awakening before any of them really broke out.
And John Gallagher (Newsroom)! I did the workshop of that show with Groff, Gallagher and Michele that went to Broadway. I knew early on that the show was really extraordinary. They did it off-Broadway and it went through the roof. Then the woman who played all the moms had to go to the hospital and we didn’t have understudies. The theater company asked me to come in. It was a harrowing experience because the show moved so fast. I did that for one terrifying night and then they moved it to Broadway. I said to the producers if Christine Estabrook, who is playing all the moms, ever wants to take some time off for a few weeks, I’d love to come in for her. Lea was obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy! Every time I came on, whether it was off-Broadway, she’d say, “You have to tell me what’s going to happen! Are Meredith and McDreamy going to get back together?! What’s going to happen to Cristina?!” She was a riot. At that point, she was a little theater actress who went from show to show, one musical after the other. And the next thing I know, there she is on Sunset Boulevard and I’m looking up at her [on billboards]. When I went on to do Spring Awakening, Lea was so helpful to me with the transitions, it was a hard show to get into and I ended up doing it for 10 weeks on Broadway. One time I was with my own son, Morgan Ritchie, at the movies way before Glee and suddenly we hear, “Mom! Mom!” He looks up and Lea is running toward us. He was delusional! (Laughs.) That’s always been the case with Lea, who I love so much. Jonathan I was with at the Emmys this year and I’m so proud of him.

Here’s a new article posted on Forbes.com talking about Chrysalis, organization that is very close to Lea’s heart:
Their annual Butterfly Ball has also drawn many supporters. Lea Michele, for instance, was introduced to Chrysalis when Glee creator Ryan Murphy was honored back in 2010. She and Cory Monteith were both big supporters of the cause, so Lea used her expansive social media following on Twitter TWTR +3.53% to galvanize support for Chrysalis in Cory’s memory after his final Glee episode aired. Individual donations of $10 came pouring in from around the world, raising in excess of $10,000.

I’ve added screencaps and a couple of news pics of Lea for #Fasterthan Campaign. It’s a very important cause and you can find out more about it here.
“The fight against breast cancer is a cause that I deeply care about and a cause that I have long supported,” said Lea Michele. “When I heard that evian was partnering with the NBCF to launch this campaign, it was an initiative that I wanted to be part of as regular self-examinations are the key in making a positive change in a woman’s survival rate.” Source

Ina new interview for Vulture, Paris Barclay talked more about Lea’s role on ‘Sons of Anarchy':
What’s the story behind Lea Michele’s upcoming guest gig? Does this show give instant street cred to actors known for playing squeaky-clean teens?
Exactly! She’s been the most fun. Lea has never been on a show other than Glee. I’ve directed a lot of Glees, so I’ve known her for a while. She’s been very much identified with the character of Rachel, and when Kurt Sutter wrote this role, he said, “Do you think we could get Lea Michele to do it?” And I said, “Well, hell, let’s ask!” And we did and she read it and within 24 hours, she said, “Fantastic, I’m in.” She only had to work one day, but she had to do six scenes, and she was awesome. The crew loved her. We finished early. She’s so prepared, and it’s such a different character from Rachel. This is a down-home, earthy waitress in a small-town diner who bonds with Gemma. She didn’t get to sing. She’s not going to do a note at all.
So no musical episode?
Sadly, no. When she was there with Katey, I said, “Can’t you sing a little something?” But no, she wanted to stay in character, and I respect that. And she didn’t die, so I’d love to see her again.
