I was woken up this morning by a text from a friend of mine-a fellow gleek-informing me of actor Cory Monteith’s death. Monteith played Finn Hudson in Glee since it’s first episode. His body was discovered Saturday in a hotel in Canada. As yet the cause of death is unknown but it is not treated suspiciously. Moneith was only 31 years old.
Me and Glee have had a frustrating relationship, with me wanting to pull my hair out at time. But Moneith was excellent as jock Finn, a flawed young guy trying to find his way in the world. My heart goes out to his family, friends, castmates and his girlfriend Lea Michele.
R.I.P Cory Monteith.
