Glee’s New Girls on Rachel-Quinn Comparisons, Rivalries, and Being "Thrown …
“The New Rachel.” That pretension might have left to Blaine (Darren Criss) following his “Call Me Maybe”-off with Tina, Unique and Brittany, though after Glee’s deteriorate premiere, fans seem to consider there might be another estimable claimant – new lady Marley Rose (Melissa Benoist).
“It’s a lot of vigour since apparently we have some unequivocally large boots to fill,” Benoist tells TVGuide.com of a comparisons to New Directions’ former resplendent star. “But we consider that Marley is so opposite from Rachel and will only move a new uninformed opinion and energy.”
When it comes to Glee‘s other uninformed faces, a Fox low-pitched isn’t shying divided from a comparisons. Case in point, Coach Sue’s outline of new Cheerio Kitty (Becca Tobin).”She’s like a immature Quinn Fabray solely she’s not pregnant, manic-depressive or in-and-out of a wheelchair.”
With Rachel (Lea Michele) – or should we call her almighty Schwimmer? – bustling fast daily written lashings during NYADA and Quinn (Dianna Agron) enjoying a collegiate knowledge during Yale, it seems Marley and Kitty are being positioned as a de facto heirs to a throne. “There’s unequivocally a small partial of Quinn in Kitty though there’s also a whole lot of other Kitty stuff,” says Tobin, who points to Rachel McAdams’ Queen B in Mean Girls and Reese Witherspoon’s overachiever Tracy Flick in Election as inspirations for a character.
Benoist, on a other hand, has taken a opposite proceed to building Marley, who was primarily described as simply “someone boys would have a vanquish on.” “As we was auditioning, there unequivocally wasn’t most that we knew about a impression so it’s felt like starting from this vacant slate,which has been unequivocally nice,” she says.
Both actresses highlight a differences between their particular characters and final year’s seniors, though a dual will be intent in a adversary rather suggestive of Rachel and Quinn: The Early Years. “She has it out for Marley,” Tobin says. “She sees that she’s a flattering lady and she’s gifted and people like her and that’s frightful for Kitty.”
So will Marley be means to quarrel back? Yes and no. “She is a small shy, though there is a bombard that she can’t mangle out of,” Benoist says. “There’s unequivocally been some moments where I’m like, ‘Yeah, we go girl!’ though they’ve been few and distant between so far.”
Unlike Quinn – who competed some-more with Santana (Naya Rivera) for a mark during a tip of a pyramid – Kitty will also conflict Brittany (Heather Morris) when she’s not picking on Marley. “She wants Brittany’s position,” Tobin says. “It’s formidable since [Brittany's] such a friendly character. Kitty is only bad to a core to be means to collect on someone like that. I’m anticipating that their attribute gets a small some-more certain since Brittany is a most easier impression to like.”
When it comes to her meant lady persona, Tobin has been means to learn from a best – longtime Glee knave Sue Sylvester (Emmy leader Jane Lynch), whom she worked with her initial day on a series. “They threw me in a low end, though it was incredible,” she says. “I was panicking on a inside, though carrying a time of my life during a same time.”

Despite a rivalries in front of a camera, it’s been really opposite behind a scenes. “There’s a outrageous clarity of intercourse on a show. The comparison expel members who have been doing this for 4 years – they’re so understanding and welcoming and accepting,” Benoist says. “And with us new expel members… it’s good to have an arm to couple or a shoulder to gaunt on.”
The biggest barrier so distant for Benoist, who complicated low-pitched museum in college after years of village museum and cooking museum programs, has been a recording studio. “I had finished it occasionally before and that’s been challenging,” she says. “It’s a training knowledge each time I’m in there. we have to work and it’s a challenge, though it’s rewarding.”
Tobin is uncertain when Kitty will sing, though says a wait will be value it. The doubt is, will fans spin a deaf ear? Tobin is a initial to acknowledge there’s zero her alter-ego will stop herself from saying, though she is confident Kitty’s softer side will be unprotected earlier rather than later. “Eventually, we consider a layers are going to come off. … Like each meant girl, there’s some-more there than only poison,” Tobin says. “l consider a fans are going to hatred her, though hopefully they’ll come around.”
