'Glee' Star Naya Rivera Snags a Record Deal

As resident McKinley High troublemaker Santana on 'Glee,' supporting actress Naya Rivera routinely steps aside for series standouts Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Santana's love interest, played by Heather Morris, to take the spotlight. But now, the 24-year-old Californian is making a play for solo success: reports that Rivera has scored a record deal with Columbia Records. Rivera is the third star of the hit series to go solo.
