“I’ll definitely making up for lost time in the episode we’re currently shooting, and then I’ll be around for the rest of the season,” Naya said during the Fox TCA Party last night. And despite the fact she’s been absent for much of the season so far, she has appreciated the way the show has changed.
“I was excited,” Naya said of receiving this season’s scripts. “I love the new format, I love all of the new kids they’ve brought on to McKinley. It allows the character [Santana] to grow and that’s important.”
Sadly it seems part of Santana’s growth has taken her away from Brittany (Heather Morris) who is now dating Sam (Chord Overstreet). Naya said she’s sure Santana hates that Brittany has moved on, but she’s glad the exes are able to still be friends.
“Obviously Santana doesn’t like when things don’t go her way. Even though she was the one that sort of called it off, I guess, she’s still not happy about that,” Naya said. “You’ll get to see how that plays out.”
( Because Brittany has moved on, Naya thinks Santana might need to, too.Collapse )
