Following the news of her death, many of Naya Rivera's Glee castmates are sharing heartbreaking social media posts.

Among them, Demi Lovato's emotional post reflected on the time she acted alongside Rivera.


The character you played was groundbreaking for tons of closeted queer girls (like me at the time) and open queer girls, and your ambition and accomplishments were inspiring to Latina women all over the world.

Chris Colfer, another former classmate, added to the list of celebrities offering their condolences.

It was confirmed by the Ventura County Sheriff's Office that the body recovered in Lake Piru was indeed that of Rivera.
