Canadian actor and singer, Cory Monteith, died suddenly last night in his hotel room. The cause of death is still unknown, but an autopsy will be due Mon, July 15. The Glee star was found unresponsive by one of the hotel staff members. When they discovered his body they ruled out a foul play. So many stars such as Kim Kardashian and Demi Lovato, tweeted their condolences on this tragic loss.
"Just learned of the death of Cory Monteith. So sad. Prayers for his family." -Kim Kardashian
"R.I.P. Cory Monteith. So unbelievably tragic." -Demi LovatoOf the cast of Glee pour their hearts out to their fans about how shocked they were to learn of this incident saying " He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously." Monteith started on Glee in 2009 as Finn Hudson. He auditioned in LA with videos he did of himself playing drums and was told he had to consider doing other areas of music such as singing. Singing wasn't necessarily his forte but gave it a shot by submitting another tape. He finally got the role of Finn who is a quarterback on the show. Monteith explained on the show that Finn is portrayed to be this dumb guy, but can make some sense of some things. The success of being Finn Hudson made the actor a regular on the show.
At one point, Monteith began a relationship with his American co-star, Lea Michelle. During the times together, he admitted to needing some special treatment due to his substance abuse addictions starting at age 19. It seem like this guy had so much going for him and now it is so sad to learn of his passing. He had so much progress and it's a shame that his death is a mystery for right now. Hopefully he didn't have any threats or pressure that caused all of this but my prayers out to his family and friends.
R.I.P. Cory Monteith.
