Unleashing her inner Rachel Berry! Glee star Lea Michele gets giddy as she signs autographs for fans at LAX

Her budding star Glee character Rachel Berry would indeed be delighted if recognised by an admirer in a public place.

But Lea Michele looked equally as excited as the teenage girl she plays on her all-singing all-dancing television show today as she turned up to LAX airport.

The 25-year-old arrived at the departures area and beamed upon noticing eager fans desperate to communicate with her.

Michele looked every inch the celebrity as she stepped out of a swanky black car with an aide carrying her Louis Vuitton luggage.

She was carrying a much-coveted Balenciaga handbag as she turned up in oversized aviator-style sunglasses and a huge smile on her face.

She showed off her slim figure in black leggings but kept it casual in a blue, black and white plaid shirt and ankle boots.

There was no room for a hair out of place as her poker straight brown locks were perfectly groomed and glossy while she went to check in for her flight.

Perhaps she was heading home to New York after wrapping on the series - which airs on Fox in the United States and Sky 1 in the UK – earlier this week.
