Lea Michele, 27, has had a rough few months since the passing of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith. The Glee tribute episode that aired Oct. 10 showed just how raw her sadness still is. But with the help of friends and other loved ones, she’s beginning to get through it.
“Everyone wants to talk about how he died … but who cares? One moment in his whole life; I care more about how he lived.” Those words, spoken by Kurt (Chris Colfer) on the Oct. 10 episode of Glee, perfectly reflected how the characters spent the emotional hour-long tribute to Finn (Cory Monteith). It was a celebration of his life — his accomplishments, his performances, and the countless way he improved the lives of those around him — and now, HollywoodLife.com is doing some reflecting of our own.
The cast of Glee — both past and present — assembled Oct. 10 to say goodbye to two of their own. Not only was this week’s episode a tribute to Cory Monteith, who lost his life on July 13, but it was also a send-off for Finn Hudson, the quarterback who sang his way into America’s hearts over the course of the past four years.
