Stars React To 'Glee' Actress Naya Rivera's Death

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — As soon as Ventura County officials announced they had found a body in Lake Piru, believed to be that of 33-year-old actress Naya Rivera who went missing last week while swimming with her son, a number of Hollywood stars shared their grief online.

Taking to social media to share their memories were a number of former "Glee" cast members, including Jane Lynch and Kevin McHale, who wrote in a heartfelt thread:

"I'm thankful she became like family. I'm thankful that my dad happened to have met her years 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."
