Videos: Melissa Benoist, Littleton girl turned Glee's new Rachel, on fame...and tampons
Viewers of Glee last night saw a lot of Littleton-bred Melissa Benoist, whose character seems targeted to become the new Rachel now that the Lea Michele-portrayed fave has moved to NYC. As a result, lotsa video of Benoist has surfaced, including a 2007 solo when she was an Arapahoe High senior and (ahem) her turn in a Tampax commercial. See both below, along with a Fox31 interview and a Glee promo.
By the way: Yes, we know that during the episode, Blaine, played by Darren Criss, was officially declared the new Rachel...but go with us on this one.
