She may play gorgeous songbird Rachel Barry on the hit show Glee, but back in the day, Lea Michele was just another adorable kid who loved to pose for photographs with her friends and only RadarOnline.com can show them to you!
Michele, 24, is the epitome of glamor now — but check out the pint-sized actress when she was just six years old!
Lea attended the Rockland Country Day School in Rockland County, New York, and a classmate tells RadarOnline.com that little Lea was a rising star even then.
“She was already in the business at the time…doing some modeling and stuff like that,” says Lea’s former friend and classmate, Laura Kanaplue.
“She and I were really good friends and we were both in plays. She was a really sweet girl. Everyone liked her, she definitely wasn’t shy.”
