Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were a couple in real life as well as on screen in Glee, so the impact of his loss has hit her doubly hard when returning to the set to film the show’s tribute episode for Cory and his character, Finn. Still, she’s glad to be there because at least the cast (minus Dianna Agron – she’s NOT WELCOME!) have each other for solace.
From TV Week Australia:
“I feel like, for me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” she tells TV WEEK Australia.
“We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic.”
Asked if she ever considered quitting the show, Lea responds, “Everyone is asking: ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’, but the truth is it’s no harder at work than it is in life so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.”
Well, I’m glad she could put on a brave face and that she’s finding some comfort in being back to routine. However, I’ve been side eyeing her over the Dianna Agron thing for a few days, admittedly – I like Dianna and y’all know my feelings only recently softened towards Lea (and not really for nice reasons – I just feel really sympathetic), so she’s inching her way back to my shit list (which I’m sure she cares about). I hope everyone can just find some peace, in whatever way that comes about.
