A private memorial was held yesterday to remember Cory Monteith. The service was organized by the cast, crew and producers of the hit TV series “Glee.” Cory Monteith, the 31-year old actor who played Finn Hudson on the show tragically died too soon. His death was due to an overdose of heroin and alcohol. In a statement made on Fox television, it was said that Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of “Glee,” and Lea Michele, “Glee” star and girlfriend of Cory, spend time together with their colleagues: “to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith.” This was all that was said about it because Fox declined to add more details.
There is a lot of speculation what will happen on the hit TV series. The fifth season of “Glee” will be delayed due to this tragedy. The delay will not be more than a week. The season will commence on September 26th. However, apart from the timeline there is no news yet how the sudden disappearance of Cory Monteith, Finn Hudson on “Glee,” will be handled. Cory played Fin, a handsome athletic guy who at first was not into the “Glee” club. However, after some incidents and convincing he decided to join and became a “Glee” star. On the show and in real life he found love in the form of Lea Michele. Lea said the following during an interview about Cory, prior to the tragedy: “It’s more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with. We get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible, and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker.” No doubt that Lea spoke about Cory like this yesterday during an emotional celebration of his life.
