The spotlight has been shining heavily on the cast of Glee recently as they have been dealing with the loss of one of their leads, Cory Monteith, and trying to move past this tragic loss. The cast is being incredibly strong as they return to set without their former costar, according to insiders.
Cory Monteith’s death has affected everyone involved in the show in a different way, according to Emmy winner Jane Lynch. The actress opened up and gave some insight about what it’s been like to be back at work after Monteith’s passing.
Lynch said, "Everybody’s doing differently. You know, it’s tough. Everybody had a relationship with him and we all express our grief in different ways so I’ll only speak for myself. I love him and I honor [him], and every day I go to work, I walk by his trailer and I go, ‘He should be in there.’"
Lynch also shared that they’ve been so strong in part because of each other and truly come together as a family. "We had a nice memorial. The cast and the crew, we all got together and we remembered Cory and honored [him]. We went back to the work and the wheels turn in spite of what happened and I’m just glad we had that memorial so we were able to come together and be a family," Lynch said.
The cast of Glee will be featured at the Teen Choice Awards tonight, as they are up for several awards, and one of its stars, Darren Criss, is hosting the teen-friendly show. The awards show is also paying tribute to the late Cory Monteith with a special segment.
Glee is set to return to the tube on September 26 on FOX at 9pm EST/8pm CST.
