Brave Lea Michele flashes a smile as she films Glee in New York

You could forgive Lea Michele for wanting to hide herself away as she comes to terms with the tragic loss of her boyfriend, fellow Glee star Cory Monteith.

But the resilient actress is getting on with her life – and is pushing on with filming scenes for the upcoming series of the hit show.

Michele flashed a smile in a Twitter pic she posted of herself on location as her character Rachel Berry in New York, posing under a billboard for musical Funny Girl.

She's already got through the difficult task of filming a tribute episode to her late boyfriend, who played Finn Hudson in the show.


The cast have been working hard to support and comfort each other after Cory's untimely death from a heroin and and alcohol overdose in mid-July, and Lea is said to be doing an "amazing" job at holding her co-stars together.

The fifth season of Glee will premiere in the US on 26 September and will air a special memorial episode for Cory on 10 October.
