During subsequent week’s Glee deteriorate finale, Gloria Estefan pops in to play Mrs. Lopez, a honeyed mom to Naya Rivera‘s abrupt Cheerio, Santana.
While it’s misleading what brings Mama Lopez to McKinley — it is a graduation episode, so that’d be a prepared theory — Rivera stressed that a attribute between mom and daughter is totally opposite than when her grandmother deserted a singing cheerleader after she came out to her during an Apr episode.
“She’s really most a understanding mom — and fun!” Rivera told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday during Fox’s upfront celebration in New York.”She was extraordinary to work with, really honeyed and we had a best time.”
Despite carrying Estefan in a house, Rivera says a Grammy leader won’t get to sing anything though instead breaks bread with her on-screen daughter and her girlfriend, Brittany (Heather Morris) during a “cute” stage during Breadsticks, where Mrs. L is, we guessed it, a good parent. “She’s really understanding of a relationship,” Rivera says.
With expel members streamer to New York and some staying put in Lima, Rivera reveals she doesn’t have a welfare in terms of where she’d like to see Santana go — if a cheerleading grant Brittany so pleasantly helped to arrange doesn’t vessel out.
“Santana only wants to be a star; she really will be posterior that,” Rivera says. “The large doubt is, is a University of Louisville large adequate for Santana? we don’t have a welfare as prolonged as I’m still concerned with a show, that we am, in any capacity.”
Considering Brittany’s graduation standing is adult in a air, and with Santana potentially streamer out of state, could a energetic integrate be separated?
Rivera says Santana will continue to assistance Brittany do anything she wants and, regardless of what happens, betrothed a gratifying culmination for “Brittana.”
“It’s not an ending, so we don’t consider there will be any issues with that,” she says. “The final part is very, really sweet.”
Would we be unhappy to see Brittany and Santana separated? Hit a comments with your thoughts. Glee front back-to-back episodes Tuesday starting during 8 p.m. on Fox.
