Lea Michele wore a risky dress at the Sons of Anarchy premiere on Saturday. It was a stunning white Cushnie Et Ochs dress with a dangerously placed front cutout.
The Glee star was there to promote her role in this season of Sons of Anarchy. The 28-year-old will play a single mother and truck stop waitress on the show.
SOA creator Kurt Sutter seems excited about her role. He said of Lea Michele,
“With Lea Michele, we heard she was interested from our executive producer and director Paris Barclay, who knew her from Glee and working together with Ryan Murphy [creator of Glee and FX’s American Horror Story],” Sutter explained.
“We cast her outside the box. She plays a truck stop waitress. You know, tough, tank top, not a smidge of makeup on her. She completely embraced what the show was all about. It’s a show that people want to play different parts on.”
Lea Michele will be playing alongside some amazing and surprising co-stars. Courtney Love will make an appearance in three episodes.
Sutter says Love will be playing the preschool teacher to Jax’s son, Abel.
“I’ve known Courtney for a little bit and become friends with her. I knew she was trying to do some acting and reinvent her career,” Sutter said. She will be playing most of her scenes with Gemma (Katey Sagal) and Wendy (Drea de Matteo).
Lea Michele has also been busy filming the sixth season of Glee. Fox recently revealed that Rachel Berry would be heading back to Lima, Ohio to run the New Directions as her character prepares for the end of the show.
