Naya Rivera is on the cover of Prestige magazine this month where she talks about playing Santana on Glee:

“Trying to be consistent as an actor is really the hardest thing. It’s been amazing to play the same character for five to six years now because it really lets me flex my acting muscles. But playing a character for that long, you have to really push yourself to keep things new and fresh and interesting. In the episode that airs tomorrow, Santana sings ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade,’ which was something new because Santana doesn’t really sing too many show tunes. But that’s the hardest part really, keeping things interesting.”
