Lea Michele Talks Losing “Cory and Finn”

“Glee” is getting ready to air its Cory Monteith tribute episode, and Lea Michele just opened up to TV Week Australia about her experience with the tragedy.

The 27-year-old actress/singer explained, “For me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn. 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.”

“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.”

Ms. Michele added, “I woke up every single day feeling like I was in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life. There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together, I consider myself very lucky.”
