Mark Salling (aka Noah “Puck” Puckerman) is excited about returning for the final season of ‘Glee.’ Unfortunately, his excitement is hindered by the overwhelming sadness he still feels over his friend, Cory Monteith’s, death.
So sad — Mark Salling, 32, feels as though there is major void in ‘Glee’s’ final season with the absence of Cory Monteith. “I still think about him all the time,” he reveals — check out the rest of his heartbreaking interview.
Mark Salling Interview — Actor Feels A ‘Big Hole’ From Cory Monteith’s Death
“Cory Monteith was a great leader as a character and person in real life,” Mark told People of his close friend and costar, who tragically died last summer at the age of 31. “It’s a big, obvious hole. I still think about him all the time.”
We can’t imagine what it would be like to return to set without Cory after growing so close to him.
“He was kind of like the quarterback of the show, which sounds cliché because the [tribute] episode was called that, but he was kind of like that in real life,” he added.
The ‘Glee’ Set Like One Big Family
“I’ve been through so much with some of these cast members,” said the actor. “Traveling the world, international tours … it’s really like family.”
Mark was asked whether the reunion has offered any closure for the lost member of their family. He answered, “I don’t think there will be any closure. Not yet.”
