Lea Michele naughtily posed on the red carpet with the main villain of the show, the masked murderer Red Devil. For those of you who don’t watch the FOX show, the Red Devil could be any of the characters in the series and will be unmasked in the season 1 finale.

Why Lea Michele Refused to Scream as Hester Ulrich

To save her voice, Lea Michele told Women’s Health that she only agreed to scream twice during the taping of the show.

“Ryan [Murphy] got me in a booth one day,” she revealed about a conversation with the show’s producer. “And I told him, ‘I’m screaming like twice and then you’re going to have to use it the whole season,’ because I’m a singer.”

“I was there with Ariana Grande and we were like, ‘We can’t scream, this is our gift.’ So I don’t scream, they just dub it in,” Michele added. “But, they say I do a really good scream face without having to scream.”

On the red carpet, though, Lea was a seductress in a black David Koma Fall 2015 dress.
