The actress received her star for her TV work and a buzz on the cheek from 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy during the ceremony.
Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch finally got her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, September 4, twenty years after she first visited the world-famous Hollywood landmark. The 53-year-old comedian has thus made her dream come true of having her own Walk of Fame star primarily for her outstanding work in television, most notable of which is her portrayal of cheerleading squad coach Sue Sylvester on FOX's musical comedy-drama series "Glee".
Presenting her with the 2,505th star was "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy who planted a sweet kiss on her cheek along with it. Filmmaker Christopher Guest, who directed Lynch in the movies "Best in Show", "A Mighty Wind" and "For Your Consideration", was also on hand to help award the star to the multi-awarded film and TV actress.
Murphy gave a heartwarming message during the ceremony, a testament to her commendable work ethic. "What I felt about Jane on that first day of work back in the day has remained consistent a decade and a half later. She is the hardest working person on the set. She is incredibly upbeat and enthusiastic. She makes everybody better and everybody happier," he said.
Lynch then posed alongside her star, lying down next to it as photographers and fans alike crowded around her to snap photos of the memorable occasion. It now thus signifies her stature as a certified Hollywood A-lister, practically icing on the cake for all the acting awards she had received for her remarkable performance as the ruthless main antagonist on her hit TV series.
