In remembrance of Cory Monteith’s birthday on May 11, Lea Michele, 27, posted a touching tribute picture on her Twitter account. Cory would have been 32-years-old today had he not tragically died from a drug overdose in July of 2013.
To celebrate Glee hitting the 100th episode on March 18, Lea Michele began posting pics from the cast over the years — one of her on the first day of filming, one of her with some of the cast in 2008, and then one in front of a billboard in 2009 — with Cory Monteith.
While Finn (Cory Monteith) may not have been there to physically lead the New Directions at Nationals, he was definitely with them in Los Angeles in spirit. Gleeks, get your tissues ready.
Lea Michele has tackled TV and Broadway, and now the gorgeous actress is bringing her talents to the April cover of Seventeen magazine. Talking about the possibility of a Glee spin-off, being comfortable and confident with her body, and on finding, (and losing), her true love, the 27-year-old is an open book.
In a new interview, co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk revealed that while the cast is excited to take on some of the best Glee hits ever on the hundredth episode, it wasn’t easy to perform “Don’t Stop Believin'” without Cory Monteith. The song was the first and last that Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn performed together.
Lea Michele knows that Cory Monteith will always be looking over her, and she’s raved over how great of a man he was. However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t eventually want that deep connection again.
