->"I love Broadway World! I'm like such a dork; I wake up, get my cup of coffee, and am like, 'Let's see what's going on on Broadway World!'"

'''Lea Michele''' (b. Lea Michele Sarfati; August 29, 1986) is an actress who was born in the Bronx. She started acting at the tender age of eight as Young Cosette in a production of ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', which she admits she tried out for on a whim. She then continued on to play the Little Girl in the original Broadway cast of ''{{Ragtime}}'', Shprintze on ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'', and several parts in various musicals, concerts, and plays, reaping in a bunch of awards and accolades while she was at it. She also played Wendla in the musical and the original Broadway run of ''SpringAwakening''.

And then she auditioned for the part of the obnoxious, talented diva Rachel Berry on ''{{Glee}}'' (with a rendition of "[[ActorAllusion On My Own]]" from ''Les Miserables''. Interviews say, though, that it was in fact [[PlatonicLifePartners platonic life partner]] and [[Creator/JonathanGroff ''Spring Awakening'' co-star Jonathan Groff]] who introduced her to series creator Ryan Murphy, and that the part of Rachel was written with her in mind.) And to say that [[StarMakingRole playing Rachel made her famous is a huge understatement]].

She's made her film debut in ''New Year's Eve'' and has already lent her voice to the titular character in the upcoming animated film ''Dorothy Of Oz.''

Personality-wise, the media knows her as a [[GenkiGirl cheerful sweetheart]] with pipes that have been called a once-in-a-generation voice. Lea is also a vegan and a very strong advocate for gay rights, as well as for [=PETA=] and has campaigned very openly against animal cruelty. Follow her on Twitter [[http://twitter.com/#!/msleamichele here]]!

!!This actress provides examples of:
* BreakTheCutie: The sudden death of Cory Monteith, her then fiance.
* CleopatraNose
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DawsonCasting: In ''SpringAwakening'' and ''{{Glee}}''. Rachel is supposed to be sixteen. [[SarcasmMode Uh huh]].
* FagHag: Without any of the unfortunate implications. See below for her own account of her relationship with Jonathan Groff, and then find an interview, any interview, where Chris Colfer is brought up.
* FanGirl: Lea has repeatedly described herself as Chris Colfer's biggest fan. They blatantly adore each other.
* GenkiGirl: She has a tendency to slip into this.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Definitely has shades of this with Dianna Agron.
* IAmNotSpock: She'll always be Rachel to most television-watching people. But of course, theater circles will always remember her for her performance in ''Spring Awakening.'
* LikeParentLikeSpouse: Invoked.
--> '''Lea''': I know this is going to sound really cheesy, but I have the coolest dad in the entire world. My dad is hilarious. Heís also strong, smart and makes me feel like heís going to take care of everything. I think those are the qualities I look for in a boyfriend. Ē
* MatzoFever
* MsFanservice: Both in {{Glee}} and her magazine photoshoots.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Jonathan Groff, who played Melchior in ''SpringAwakening'' and Jesse on ''{{Glee}}''.
--> '''Lea''': I donít go a day without talking to Jonathan. I donít go a day without being in contact with him. Our families are very close, every New Yearís we spend together with our families, we have a tradition with them. Weíve been on trips together. Iíve driven reluctantly to the country, to Jonathanís house. Iíve seen Jonathan in every job heís ever done. Heís been my date to things like the SAG awards and openings. I grew up never having had close friends because I was working all the time. All the girls, growing up, everyone had their best friends. And I never, ever had that. And Jonathan is really and truly my first and only best friend. And I couldnít have picked a better person.
* SeparatedAtBirthCasting: Idina Menzel plays her mother on ''{{Glee}}''.
* ShesGotLegs
* StageName
* TeensAreShort: She's 5'2" and is currently playing high-schooler Rachel on ''{{Glee}}''.
* TwoFirstNames: Her real name is Lea Michele Sarfati, but she dropped her last name because [[KidsAreCruel she was teased about it]].
* YouLookFamiliar: On ''Les Miserables'', she played Young Cosette and returned to play Eponine.
