Recently, one of AC’s youngest fans, Avery Phillips, was cast in our favorite show, “Glee.” And even though Avery’s only 5 years old, she was beyond excited to learn that she’d be playing a younger version of her favorite cheerleader, Quinn Fabray, who she refers to as “the boss of the Cheerios.” The pint-size cutie has been cheering since she was 2 and couldn’t wait to try on her William McKinley uniform.
Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos taken on the set of “Glee.”
Glee goes back in time…how cute are the kids playing Brittany, Quinn, Mercedes, Santana, Puck and Rachel? The episode, entitled, “The Substitute,” aired on November 16 and guest-starred Gwyneth Paltrow.
Uh oh, looks like Sue’s office is being taken over by mini Gleeks! Look at all those cheer trophies!
Avery’s one lucky girl! Don’t you wish you were sandwiched in between Cory Monteith and Mark Salling?
Avery even met AC’s future cover girl, Heather Morris, a.k.a. Brittany S. Pierce.
While Sue Sylvester may frighten most kids, Avery loves her. In fact, when she saw the actress who plays her, Jane Lynch, on set, she immediately ran up to her and gave her a big hug. “I’m a meanie, don’t ya know!” said Jane as she picked up Avery. “No, you’re not,” replied Avery. “You’re so funny!”
