Lea Michele Opens Up For The First Time About Losing Cory Monteith
Glee fans are ready to watch the Farwell To Finn episode that airs tomorrow night on FOX. The promo alone had us in tears… In a new interview with TV Week Australia Lea Michele talks about what it was like filming that episode, and speaks out for the first time since losing Cory Monteith.
“I feel like, for me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn. We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic.”
Asked if she’ll be leaving the show, Lea responds, “Everyone is asking: ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’, but the truth is it’s no harder at work than it is in life so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.”
Lea Michele was asked how she would like fans to remember about Cory:
“I really woke up every single day feeling like I was being in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life. I feel like what happened with Cory (the cause of his death) was this big, she says, holding her fingers together to reflect a miniscule amount, in the scheme of who he was and his life.
There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together I consider myself very lucky.”
