Jayma Mays: 'It wasn't my choice to leave 'Glee''

'Glee' beauty Jayma Mays has revealed that it wasn't her decision to leave the show's cast and she's now wondering how she will be written out of the well-loved U.S. musical drama. 

Speaking to Metro newspaper about her impending departure from the programme, red-headed Mays explained that she has been cut from playing guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury and is sad to be leaving:

"It wasn't my choice. The creators decided to do it. We knew it was coming last year. Some other characters will also be leaving this season. It's very sad to be going, but I understand why they do it. It's about getting new blood into the show. I really enjoyed playing Emma. I don't know how I'm written out yet. I'm so curious."

She also spoke briefly about filming the recent tribute episode for the late Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, and added: "It's been really hard. We just filmed his memorial episode and it was a very difficult thing to do. Just being there, you felt the absence of a friend and co-worker. It's been a very sad and difficult year for everyone."

'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy has also confirmed that the series will end after season 6: "I always knew that, I always knew how it would end. I knew what the last shot was - he was in it. I knew what the last line was - she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens, you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we're figuring that out now."
