Naya Rivera es recordada con emotivos mensajes por sus compañeros de Glee
Heather Morris y Jane Lynch, entre otros, recordaron a la actriz.
En la tarde del lunes, 13 de julio, el departamento del Sheriff del condado de Ventura en California confirmó que había encontrado el cuerpo de la actriz Naya Rivera desaparecida el día 8 del mismo mes.
El grupo de actores y actrices que compartieron con Rivera el set durante las grabaciones de Glee, compartieron en redes sociales algunas palabras, anécdotas y fotografías con la actriz de ascendencia puertorriqueña.
Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) publicó un tuit en donde escribió: “Descansa, dulce Naya. Qué gran fuerza fuiste. Amor y paz para tu familia”.
Rest sweet, Naya. What a force you were. Love and peace to your family.— Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch) July 13, 2020
Por su parte, Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel), publicó una fotografía de ambos en blanco y negro y destacó su brillo, sentido del humor, belleza y talento. “Ella inspiró y animó a mucha gente sin proponérselo”.
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.
Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones), publicó un video de Naya con su hijo Josey y aseguró no tener palabras ante lo sucedido, “solo muchos sentimientos”.
Kevin McHale (Artie Abrams), publicó una foto junto a la actriz y expresó no poder imaginarse el mundo sin ella. También, recordó que en esa misma fecha, siete años atrás, estaban juntos en Londres cuando recibieron la noticia de la muerte de su compañero de elenco Cory Monteith. Por otro lado, le agradeció por haberlo hecho una mejor persona.
My Naya, my Snixxx, my Bee. I legitimately can not imagine this world without you. • 7 years ago today, she and I were together in London when we found out about Cory. We were so far away, but I was so thankful that we had each other. A week ago today we were talking about running away to Hawaii. This doesn’t make sense. And I know it probably never will. • She was so independent and strong and the idea of her not being here is something I cannot comprehend. She was the single most quick-witted person I’ve ever met, with a steel-trap memory that could recall the most forgettable conversations from a decade ago verbatim. The amount of times she would memorize all of those crazy monologues on Glee the morning of and would never ever mess up during the scene… I mean, she was clearly more talented than the rest of us. She was the most talented person I’ve ever known. There is nothing she couldn’t do and I’m furious we won’t get to see more. • I’m thankful for all the ways in which she made me a better person. She taught me how to advocate for myself and to speak up for the things and people that were important to me, always. I’m thankful for the times I grew an ab muscle from laughing so hard at something she said. I’m thankful she became like family. I’m thankful that my dad happened to have met her weeks before I did and when I got Glee, he told me to “look out for a girl named Naya because she seemed nice.” Well dad, she was nice and she became one of my favorite people ever. • If you were fortunate enough to have known her, you’ll know that her most natural talent of all was being a mother. The way that she loved her boy, it was truly Naya at her most peaceful. I’m thankful that Naya got that beautiful little boy back on that boat. I’m thankful he will have a strong family around him to protect him and tell him about his incredible mom. I just hope more than anything that her family is given the space and time to come to terms with this. For having such tiny body, Naya had such a gigantic presence, a void that will now be felt by all of us - those of us who knew her personally and the millions of you who loved her through your TVs. I love you, Bee.
Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray), recordó su primer día juntas durante la grabación del episodio piloto de Glee. “Ella fue mi primera amiga y aliada en el show”. Además, recordó lo espontánea que era cuando viajaban juntas.
Naya and I fell into stride with such ease, she was my first friend and ally on our show. In the pilot, our characters came and went with such swiftness. Our enthusiasm brimmed with all of the unknown. We tried to grasp what the other cast members must be feeling as we were working in such separate manners. We dared to dream. What if this show worked? Wouldn’t that be something? Something was brimming, it was palpable. And thank god it worked. Naya’s magnetic talent was going to be unleashed, we just didn’t know it yet. I’ve been revisiting Naya’s performances on our show and it has brought me great joy. To work with her was a gift. There was a great deal to absorb - her work ethic, her fearlessness, her talent - supreme. Naya had a laugh that would envelop you and hold you captive. She was mesmerizing. That twinkle in her eye, her luminous smile. Naya lead with truth, humor, wit. I loved her for all of these reasons. I loved her sense of curiosity and wanderlust. I was lucky enough to be her travel partner for some of my most favorite adventures. As I write this, I’m grinning with swelling memories of a spontenaous 36 hour excursion - one might even say diversion - to Paris. With Naya, everything was possible and would often simply unfold before us, almost magically. On this particular jaunt, within ten minutes of checking into our hotel, we found ourselves strolling the halls of L'École des Beaux-Arts, sipping wine from paper cups with students showcasing their latest work. It was fantastic. We were united in our commitment to discovery. And there was always a list of cleverly curated ideas in Naya’s back pocket, should we need it. I cannot make sense of this tremendous loss. I will hold onto her and these memories for the rest of time, alongside our Glee family. Please hold space for her, her family, her beautiful boy. In absolute, loving memory.
Lea Michelle (Rachel Berry), quien por estos días anda retirada de las redes sociales después de que varias personas la acusaran de tener comportamientos cuestionables en los sets de grabación, publicó en sus historias de Instagram una foto de Naya, luego una de Cory y finalizó con una de sus compañeros de trabajo en ‘Glee’.
Harry Schum Jr. (Mike Chang) destacó la habidad de Naya de memorizarse varias páginas de los libretos de ‘Glee’ y cómo siempre fue una amiga en las buenas y en las malas.
Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina Cohen-Chang) también manifestó su cariño por su amiga a pesar de haber tenido altos y bajos.
There are no words and yet so many things I want to say, I don't believe I'll ever be able to articulate exactly what I feel but... Naya, you were a force and everyone who got to be around you knew it and felt the light and joy you exuded when you walked into a room. You shined on stage and screen and radiated with love behind closed doors. I was lucky enough to share so many laughs, martinis and secrets with you. I can not believe I took for granted that you'd always be here. Our friendship went in waves as life happens and we grow, so I will not look back and regret but know I love you and promise to help the legacy of your talent, humor, light and loyalty live on. You are so loved. You deserved the world and we will make sure Josey and your family feel that everyday. I miss you already.
Finalmente, Heather Morris (quien interpretó a Brittany Piece y en el show fue pareja de Santana Lopez, el personaje de Naya Rivera), escribió en Instagram que está “honrando su luto” y cuidando de ella y su familia.
