On Glee, Jane Lynch portrays Sue Sylvester, one of the funniest characters in TV history.
Alas, the sarcastic cheerleader coach is also one of the loneliest, as her attitude and drive to win doesn't exactly appeal to potential mates.
Fortunately for the actress, however, life does not imitate art: Lynch is engaged to her longtime girlfriend, psychologist Lara Embry. The couple is planning a May wedding
Lynch has other professional reasons to celebrate these days, as well:
She earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role on the series; while Glee won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy.
