The cast of Glee got a little scare last night (May 1) at The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ screening of Fox’s Glee at Leonard Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, California.

Amber Riley collapsed on the red-carpet whilst doing interviews with various media outlets. Thankfully, she is now feeling fine and says that she became “dizzy” from the flashbulbs.

Soon after the scary incident, she took to Twitter to assure fans she was ok, saying, “Hey guys, I’m okay :) I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes”.

She later thanked photographers for their professional manner, saying, “I’d also like to thank the photographers for being do professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing”. 

As for the event itself, the two best lines of the night came from Amber and Chris Colfer. Riley was asked to recall her favorite moment with on-screen love interest Chord Overstreet: “It’s always interesting when we kiss because both of our lips are so big,” she said to laughs. “We have to figure out whose lips are going to be on top!”

Colfer addressed Kurt’s tight gold lamé pans from his NYADA audition: “I had two fittings and had no idea it would be a battle of the bulge.”

What did you think of last night’s episode of Glee?

    You know, I think Amber fainted because she’s been starving herself… sure she looks like she’s at a healthier weight now, but clearly she’s not getting fit in a healthy way. A twenty-six year old doesn’t just randomly faint because of flashes from a camera.

      Think about it she was on set a day working long hours then had to come to an event later on that day. Which she had already committed to the event she could’ve be very over worked and fainted if she was starving herself wouldn’t she be even more smaller? Those camera flashing in your face could make a person dizzy and faint! I’ve fainted before and I damn sure wasn’t staving myself I had a virus people there said she looked sick before she even fainted!
