Sugar's departure is bittersweet for Glee

GLEE producers have lost their Sugar to another show.

Actress Vanessa Lengies, who plays Sugar Motta in the song-and-dance series, is quitting Glee after landing a regular role on new U.S. sitcom Mixology.

She says, "Getting to play Sugar Motta was one of the biggest opportunities of my life, and I met some of the most fantastic people, but I was being hired per episode. I loved getting to be there and dancing around, but I didn't really have much of an opportunity to act."

Her new show debuts next year (14) and so Lengies is hoping to give her Glee character a proper send-off later this year (13) when the show returns.

She tells TV Guide magazine, "I would love to have them introduce a time machine and ­reveal that Sugar was a visitor from the future."
