Naya Rivera says she is 'grateful' to have been a part of hit TV show Glee.
Rivera has played Santana Lopez in the show, which is will be coming to an end after six seasons.
Speaking to Access Hollywood the actress said: "I think we've had a really good run on the show. I think that all good things must come to an end, so whenever that comes to an end, I'll just be grateful that I was even on it."
It has been a tough time for the show recently after the death of popular cast member Cory Monteith.
The tribute episode for the actor was aired earlier this month, and Rivera admits that singing If I Die Young was a challenge for her.
"It was really difficult, it brought tears to my eyes. It was definitely tough, but all in all, I think it was a great episode. I'm really proud of everybody."
Away from Glee Rivera has also completed work on TV movie The Naughty List, and will be back on the big screen in Home.
Home is directed by Nicholas McCarthy and will see Rivera team up with Ashley Rickards and Catalina Sandino Moreno.
'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy recently confirmed the hit show will come to an end in 2015.
