Vanessa Lengies's Career after Glee

Glee was definitely the show that propelled Vanessa's career, but she left the show with remorse and sadness.

As the actress wasn't a permanent member of the cast and was getting paid per episode, Vanessa felt that she wasn't allowed to shine much on the show and thought she needed fresh air, which was her role as Kacey on 'Mixology.'

Her main role in 'Mixology' allowed her to show her potential, and although the show had a short life, it was enough to show that Vanessa had the spark. 

She's been high on the rise since and has been provided major roles in various TV shows and movies, including but not limited to 'We are your friends,' 'Lego: Star Wars,' 'Second Chance,' and 'Happy Birthday.'

With numerous roles under her belt, the actress does not miss a chance to impress her audience every time she takes up the big screens.
