Glee‘s Jane Lynch, who won a 2010 Emmy for playing cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, is reacting publicly to co-star Mark Salling’s apparent suicide. A TMZ photographer caught up with Lynch and asked about Salling’s shocking death.

“It’s sad and very tragic,” she told the outlet.

When asked how she will remember Salling, Lynch said, “As the guy who made that really sweet video in the beginning of Glee when he was so happy to be a part of this group.”
