Today, the world lost a talented young actor, taken far too early.
Cory Monteith, best known as Finn Hudson from Glee was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver after failing to check out. Whilst it’s unclear what happened, the police are not treating it as foul play.
Fans and celebrities including fellow Glee cast members have been posting tributes about the actor all day. I awoke to the news this morning and was shocked and hugely saddened. The actor had voluntarily checked into rehab back in April but was last pictured looking happy and healthy last month. As a huge Glee fan, I cannot imagine how his fellow cast members and Cory’s family and friends are feeling right now, as well as the countless fans.
In this situation, my heart and prayers go out particularly to Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the show and is also Monteith’s real-life girlfriend. They were together for 2 years, and she has openly said in interviews how happy she was with the actor.
Even after watching episodes of Glee and listening to the songs, I’m still shocked that he won’t be back on our screens and his talent will be sorely missed. I don’t think it will sink in properly until season 5 airs but for now, I’ll leave everyone with a performance from Mr Monteith.
Rest in Peace Cory – a star will be shining brighter in the sky tonight
