Vanessa Lengies, who was introduced on Glee back in season three, will bid farewell to the series. Lengies played Sugar Motta, a new member of the New Directions with a wealthy father and self-diagnosed Asperger’s syndrome. Although her character aspired to be the star of the group in the beginning, she remained in the background.
Lengies told TV Guide that working on the FOX show was “one of the biggest opportunities of my life, and I met some of the most fantastic people.” But she also acknowledged that she really didn’t have an opportunity to act, which was very apparent in the last season.
But that’s definitely changing, as her pilot Mixology was called to series by ABC. The show follows ten singles on one night in the same bar. Lengies plays Kacey, a bubbly waitress looking for love.
Since the sitcom is set for a mid-season premiere, that means she still has time to do a proper goodbye. Well, if the Glee writers permit it. But how exactly does she want to go? It looks like she was inspired by the fandom: “I would love to have them introduce a time machine and reveal that Sugar was a visitor from the future.”
I definitely want to see a proper goodbye for Sugar, but I don’t know about a time machine…How would you like to see her go?
