Lea Michele is definitely the queen of scream!
The former Glee star dished on her newest role in the Fox horror comedy Scream Queens, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday. The series chronicles the lives of a group of college sorority girls while a mystery killer in a red costume runs loose on campus. The show is also jam-packed with credits of A-list names, including Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin and Nick Jonas.
The actress shared her experiences shooting for the new series on location in New Orleans with Ellen DeGeneres, who is also a native of Louisiana. She gushed about the restaurants—which she says are turning her into a Pilates fiend—the welcoming residents, and even the swamp tours, admitting excitedly that she once even got to feed a gator.
It got even more adventurous in the city when Michele described one shoot where she had to be buried up to her neck in the dead of night in the New Orleans soil for a scene. Series creator Ryan Murphy unfortunately had to help whack spiders off her face while she was stuck without the use of her hands. Eek!
