After six seasons of slushies to the face, the kids of McKinley High are saying goodbye for good, as Fox airs the series finale of "Glee." The show has had both crazy success and deep lows since its premiere back in 2009 ... and, according to star Jenna Ushkowitz, it's going on out a high note.
toofab's Brian Particelli caught up with Jenna, who played goth stutterer-turned-Prom Queen Tina Cohen-Chang, at SXSW, where she opened up about her brand new documentary "Twinsters" and filming the "emotional" end to the beloved TV show.
"It's kind of shocking, as well as very emotional," Ushkowitz says of her run on the series. "We went through a lot of ups and downs and the last couple of days were so emotional, I was not prepared for at all. It was really nice. It's bittersweet, but I'm excited to see what everybody else does. Everyone is so talented in their own ways and we're really honing in on them as adults."
Of the finale itself, she adds "What we shot felt right, it felt like a really nice goodbye and a really nice tie-up." Check out the video above to see how she plans on watching the 2-hour ender tonight.
And while Jenna says she can't wait to see what her former costars do next, it's her latest project that we're incredibly interested in.
Ushkowitz was at SXSW to promote a documentary she executive produced, "Twinsters," about two strangers on opposite sides of the world who discover they could be twins separated at birth. It's an insane story ... and one that had Jenna thinking about her own adoption.
