In Focus: Naya Rivera's Colorful Career—From 'Glee' Star To Newsmaking Author

After searching through the difficult, murky waters of Lake Piru in Ventura County, California, actress Naya Rivera was found dead, 33.

The news comes just days since Naya was first reported missing on July 8. Reports claim that she and her four-year-old son Josey had rented a pontoon boat on the lake. Josey was later seen alone, asleep on the boat. When he woke up, he told authorities that they had gone for a swim but that his mother did not return.

Naya's death coincidentally falls on the seventh year death anniversary of Cory Monteith and over two years since that of Mark Salling—two of her Glee co-stars.

A model and actress since childhood, the former child actress rose to fame in the musical comedy series Glee, which ran from 2009 to 2015. She then went on to play other characters, dabble in music, become an author, and start a family.
