Today’s birthday girl is Naya Rivera.
The “Glee” star is experiencing something that no one else on the show seems to be enjoying: sleeper success. While the other actors associated with the program saw their own stars rising very quickly, Rivera toiled in near-obscurity until her character began to become a fan favorite. Soon, the creators of the show realized that the actress was far more talented and far more versatile than many of her counterparts, and by the end of 2011 I was reading articles that called Rivera one of the year’s “breakout stars.”
In my last two profiles I’ve discussed Capricorn competency. It’s funny how someone who has been there all along can suddenly “break out.” I guess that’s a Capricorn for you: quietly, competently working hard while so many others pretend to be the stars of the show.
