Amber Riley: I'll miss Glee

Amber Riley

Amber Riley is going to "miss the whole Glee family" as she leaves the show.

The actress took to her Twitter account yesterday to announce she had finished filming her final episode of the popular musical series. Amber plays Mercedes, one of the senior students graduating in the current season.

"That's a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life, the only thing I've known day in and day out for three years," she wrote.

"I'm going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday (sic)," she continued.

"I have so many brothers and sisters now :) But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! SCHOOL'S OUT Glee Kids! Let's play!

"Stay tuned to see what's next for Mercedes (sic)."

Her co-star Dianna Agron is also reportedly leaving the show.

The cast of Glee have been emotional filming the final scenes for season three.

The stars have broken down in tears while working on the last episodes as many of the characters are in their final year at high school and will be going to college or full-time jobs.

Harry Shum Jr., who plays dancer Mike in the show, said the cast were overwhelmed.

"There [are] a lot of tears on set, randomly. We had a rehearsal and even our choreographer had some tears," he told ET. "He couldn't even get through the rehearsal...We've been through a long journey."
