Tributes have begun to pour in from across the entertainment world following the confirmation of the tragic death of Glee star Naya Rivera in a Californian lake last week.
"Rest sweet, Naya. What a force you were. Love and peace to your family."
- Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester on Glee)
"How can you convey all your love and respect for someone in one post? How can you summarize a decade of friendship and laughter with words alone? If you were friends with Naya Rivera, you simply can't. Her brilliance and humor were unmatched. Her beauty and talent were otherworldly. She spoke truth to power with poise and fearlessness. She could turn a bad day into a great day with a single remark. She inspired and uplifted people without even trying. Being close to her was both a badge of honor and a suit of armor. Naya was truly one of a kind, and she always will be. Sending all my love to her wonderful family and her beautiful son."
- Chris Colfer (Kurt on Glee)
