Big Bang Theory & Glee actress Galloway dies at 78

Jane Galloway Heitz, who appeared in Glee and The Big Bang Theory, has died aged 78.

The actress was probably best known for playing Lillian Adler in Glee, who was William McKinley High School’s former glee club director, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Heitz managed to appear at both ends of the show’s six year run, appearing in the director’s cut of the pilot, in 2009, and the 2015 finale.

The character played by Galloway Heitz was important in the story of Glee and her photo was displayed in the club's choir room.

It hung above a plaque which read: "By its very definition, Glee is about opening yourself up to joy."

The death of Galloway Heitz was confirmed in US media after her obituary was published with her funeral set to be held on Saturday, November 30, in Illinois.
