OK, here's one way to bury Rachel Berry forever. We knew Lea Michele would be starring in Ryan Murphy's latest project, Scream Queens -- which follows a sorority being stalked by a vicious killer -- and now EW has the first photo of her new character -- and it's a far cry from her Glee days. As Murphy reveals:

"Her name is Hester. She plays a girl with scoliosis and a neckbrace, whose nickname is Neckbrace--Emma's character just calls her 'Neckbrace.' It's a real Eve Harrington part for Lea. This girl wants everything Chanel (Emma Roberts) has and will do anything to get it. Lea calls it her Charlize Theron Monster moment. We won't let her put on any make up and she wears these horrible 1995 tracksuits. But there's a great turn that happens half-way through the season with that character."

Roberts tells EW she "can't look at Lea in a scene because she makes me laugh," adding: "She's so funny. We'll be doing a scene where I'll be giving everyone my death glare and I'll have to skip Lea because I'll start cracking up. It's been really fun to work with her because I was such a fan of Glee. Her and I have really hit it off."

Scream Queens premieres this fall on Fox.
