Amber Riley caused concern last night, when she fainted while walking the red carpet of an Academy screening of her hit show Glee.
The 26 year old actress of course plays Mercedes in the musical drama and yesterday, as the stars of the show were being honoured in Hollywood, she collapsed while posing for photographs outside the venue.
Riley later tweeted her fans, to assure them that she was ok and the faint had just been a blimp. She wrote:
‘Hey guys, I’m okay 🙂 I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes (sic).’
She also thanked the photographers at the venue for not taking pictures of her, while she was lying on the ground unconscious.
‘I’d also like to thank the photographers for being do professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing.’
Amber looked stunning as she arrived at the TV Academy of Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood last night, dressed in flattering dark blue jeans, a taupe flowing top and a matching blazer.
Despite her health scare, she did not go home to rest, but instead joined her fellow stars – including Lea Michele, Naya Rivera and Jenna Ushkowitz – for the panel discussion with Emmy voters inside.
Meanwhile, Lea has admitted that she is finding filming the third season finale of Glee very emotional. Matthew Morrison recently revealed that a number of the cast will not be back for the fourth run and we can’t help but wonder if Michele’s tweet below gives any clues as to who they may be.
‘Dance rehearsal w/ the original 5 @MsAmberPRiley @JennaUshkowitz @druidDUDE @chriscolfer. Cried 4 the first time about the end of the year!’
Our of that group, we know that Lea and Chris are definitely back, but some of the others could easily be preapring to say goodbye to the hit Fox show.
