Perhaps not surprising since her character hasn’t been seen since early in Glee season three, actress Ashley Fink says her character likely won’t be returning.

UPDATE: Fink addressed this story with the following tweet, noting she doesn’t know whether or not she’s ever returning:

She spoke to The Insider at the premiere of Chris Colfer’s Struck By Lightning premiere:

“It is what it is. Lauren’s somewhere in that school, she’s just not on camera or being talked about [laughs]. She’s involved in activities that aren’t televised.”

And no one is sadder about this turn of events that Lauren. “Of course I miss me on Glee. I miss everybody. I miss the fun experience that show is. But Glee is very much a fly by the seat of your pants [operation] in the way that best laid plans never quite come together. They have so many [characters] to take care of and I think once they made the decision that all these characters were going to graduate, it shifted the way this season was going to go. I haven’t heard anything from Ryan, but I visited [while they were filming] prom, so I got to see everybody, which was great.”

We had heard in September that Fink’s role would be reduced, but were not sure if she was gone for good. She doesn’t appear to be confident about returning.

    noooo :( I loved Lauren !!

    Glee needs to take stock of its s***, yo! And also it’s actors that it just flat out forgets about…

  • Andy

    All this does is make me wonder if Dijon left on his own accord or if they just forgot to send him a contract for season 2. Oh, I simply cannot wait for the tell-all book he’ll write 10 years from now! The fact that Ryan didn’t even call her to say “hey, sorry, we aren’t writing for your character anymore” is a little ridiculous…

    • diana

      Yes that’s what I was wondering about too because why would he leave on his own accord you know?

    • PotionWillow207

      They’re not obligated to keep every character in every season. They wrote him out in the same way they’re writing out all the characters that are graduating. It doesn’t mean there’s anything underhanded or bad going on. It just means that the show is moving in a different direction.

    Lauren was awesome…they should have given her SOMETHING at Prom since it’s her Prom too!

  • Ssahrishkhan08

    I didn’t like her character, so I’m ok with this.

  • Guest

    Yeah, I didn’t like her character either..the character was just so annoying.

  • Mia

    I’m kinda glad she won’t be on Glee anymore. I wasn’t a huge fan of the character but it is kinda sad that she didn’t get a call or anything.

    Heartbroken!! Besides Quinn, Santana, and Rachel she was the best girl character!! She was hysterical!!!!

  • Turbo

    I served Ashley the other day.  She’s a semi-regular at my restaurant.  She’s the sweetest girl ever and gets delighted at being recognized for Glee.  Just cuz I want someone like that to be successful I hope she comes back in a big way in season 4.

    She needs to be at Prom and Graduation

  • Leigh

    That’s really rude of them to not let her know if her character will ever be on the show agiain

    • PotionWillow207

      That’s show biz. When your contract is up, there’s no guarantee you’ll be back.

    She was one of the best characters, I loved her relationship with Puck.

    I hate Lauren but I love Ashley.

  • Caleb

    She was one of my favorites.  Should at least come back for the end of the season.

    I loved her, and I’ve been missing her this season. I could have done without Sugar and Rory.. 

    • Sarah

      I could have done without both.

        Exactly! ;)

    There’s no doubt in my mind that if the Glee writers choose to include Lauren again, that Ashley Fink would come back. She always talks about this show with so much love. I saw her at Chris’s SBL panel on Sunday and I talked to her about it, and I can tell that she misses it and that she truly has no idea if Lauren’s coming back or not. I asked her why she’s not on the show anymore and she was just like, “Your guess is as good as mine.”
