Glee - Amber Riley Leaving Glee For Good

Glee actress Amber Riley has become the latest star to leave the hit U.S. TV show.
The 26 year old, who plays Mercedes Jones on the musical series, will bid farewell to the New Directions glee club at MCKinley High at the end of the current third season as her character graduates from school.
After filming her final scenes for the programme, she took to Twitter.com to write, "That's a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life.
"I'm going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday! 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!"
Actress Ashley Fink, who portrays Lauren Zizes, was revealed to have been dropped from the cast last month (Apr12), while series co-creator Ryan Murphy previously announced he would be fading out the characters played by leading stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith as they 'graduate' this season, although they will return for cameos in future episodes.
