Tributes have been paid to actress Naya Rivera, whose death has now been confirmed by US police after missing for days.
The 33-year-old, famous for playing Santana Lopez on Glee, had gone missing during a boat trip in California.
After a long search, divers found her body yesterday prompting an outpouring of love and sympathy from her co-stars.
“She was so independent and strong and the idea of her not being here is something I cannot comprehend,” wrote Glee actor Kevin McHale on Twitter.
“She was the single most quick-witted person I’ve ever met, with a steel-trap memory that could recall the most forgettable conversations from a decade ago.
“She was the most talented person I’ve ever known and I’m furious we won’t get to see more.”
“Rest sweet, Naya. What a force you were. Love and peace to your family,” added Jane Lynch, who played coach Sue Sylvester on the show.
Many of her former cast-mates gathered at the bank of Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, to pay their respects.
