Ryan Murphy had apparently promised a big storyline was in store for the character, but it never materialised.
Speaking to The Insider, she said:
“It is what it is. Lauren’s somewhere in that school, she’s just not on camera or being talked about [laughs]. She’s involved in activities that aren’t televised. Of course I miss me on Glee. I miss everybody. I miss the fun experience that show is.”
Asked if she was angry about her casual departure, she replied:
“Glee is very much a fly by the seat of your pants [operation] in the way that best laid plans never quite come together. They have so many [characters] to take care of and I think once they made the decision that all these characters were going to graduate, it shifted the way this season was going to go.”
There’s still a Whitney Houston tribute and a body swap twist in store before the current run of the show draws to a close next month.
