Cory Monteith On ‘Glee’ — His 10 Best Moments As Finn
“We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones,” Glee executive producers, 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Company said in a statement.
Cory, who died at 31, starred on Glee as Finn since its premiere on May 19, 2009. Many of Cory’s scenes on the series involved his off-screen girlfriend Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry. Their on-again/off-again relationship was the central storyline that drove the series. The truth is, Glee has always been about “Finchel,” so we imagine it’ll be a difficult task to work around this devastating news.
However, during his time on Glee, Cory had many show-stopping performances. Celebrate Cory’s life with us and watch 10 of his best performances as Finn below.
