Cory Monteith Death: More 'Glee' Cast & Crew React

The cast and crew of Glee are rightfully shocked and saddened by the tragic death of star Cory Monteith at the young age of 31.

The actor was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver after not checking out at the time he was expected to leave on Saturday (July 13).

After the news spread, Cory‘s co-stars and very close friend Mark Salling tweeted a simple “no” while others close to the show also shared their sentiments.

Now, more of his co-stars have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the devastating news. Glee guest star Gwyneth Paltrow also has released a statement.

Cory was a sweet and talented man. My heart breaks for Lea and the entire Glee family,” Gwyneth told EW.

“My deepest sympathies go out to friends and family of Cory Monteith. Such tragic news.” Adam Lambert, who just signed on for a stint next season on Glee, tweeted.

“going through a million memories and emotions today. ill love you always Brother Cory.” Mark tweeted after his original reaction tweet.

He has been an addict since he was a teenager.
extremely tragic, but when you know an addict, it is not shocking.
u guys see photos of someone smiling and think they are ‘happy and healthy’. it’s called an addiction for a reason.

no one jump the gun on an overdose. we dont know yet what happened, either way its sad. He has been trying to beat his addictions at least.

I was completely shocked I still don’t believe it. even though I’ve never met him I even actually did not like his character on glee I still kind of feel like I lost someone somehow

Why does no one ever mention his parents? Instead of ‘poor Lea’ how about thinking of his parents who just lost their child?

such a great talent gone far too soon my heart goes out to his family friends and cast members i,m a big fan he will be missed i,m still shocked he will be missed R I P Cory

Its Sad To Know This Happened . My Sister Told Me And I Didnt Believe It . He Was Very Talented . My Heart Goes Out To Cory’s Family And Friends . Sorry For Your Loss . Rest In Paradise Cory <3

@wow: I Agree . We All Know How Close Lea And Cory Were , But Think About His Parents . They Just Lost A Child , A Child They Cant Get Back . That Is Something That No Parent Wants To Experience .

@wow: Because he rarely mentions his parents. He wasn’t very close with them growing up. He had a better relationship with them in recent years, but that aside you’re more inclined to pray for those you know. Everyone knows about him and Lea and were close with both of them.

He’s 31 with a girlfriend, he had a life of his own. At that age, it’s not just about your parents. As much as you love them and grateful for them, people grow closer with their significant others. Someone that you wake up to every morning and see a future with. People are sad he doesn’t have they don’t have that anymore.

Seriously, just let people grieve however they want.

I am so shocked and sad at Cory’s death.He and his family will be remembered in my prayers and I offer my condolences to them.Such a talented and seemingly lovely guy.We will miss you! x

just really sad.. like it gives me chills … but like alot of people are saying like he was hooked to drugs for along time.. I’m sorry you can get help but it won’t take the crave away. he probably tried to get help but it was probably on force. you have to be able to want to or you will keep doing it. really sad I fell for his character on glee.. but it is just really sad. to many young folks are dying its just a shame and it’s mostly the drugs and money that kill em :( no parent should loose there baby. no matter if there not close or not. but my heart goes to the family and friends. R.I.P Cory I hope heaven treats you well.

Not surprised at all. Just a shame he chose to destroy the lives of everyone who cared about him in such a selfish way. My sympathy goes out to everyone who loved him even those who knew he had a problem but didn’t care enough to get him the psychological councilling he so desperately needed.

I love you Cory I will miss you the most so sad just found out I hope you will read this Cory xoxoxo aly.

Rip Cory
I hope everyone will remember u I know I will you where the best I’m just tearing up.

Xoxoxo
Alyson

Always in my heart.

@Sarah.: I know I love him alot

ITS REALLY SHOCKING !! like 2 weeks ago i was just watching glee from 1st season and watched the chemistry between lea and him and it was CUTE and to see this news on his death is heart breaking im up to season 3 and to know this HIS WAS THE BACK BONE OF GLEE HE WAS THE ONE HOLDING GLEE UP !!
RIP CORY AND MY HEART GOES TO YOU AND LEA !!!

to be honest he died a mysterious death and was found dead on the day he was suppose to leave from vancouver … It doesn’t seem to me that he just died as many other stars do of the common overdose …
Maybe something worse happened and he was killed .. he was too young to just die like that alone in a hotel with no one around to help him .. He could have been saved .. I don’t believe he died from drugs .. I believe there is something the media is not telling us .. what really happened ?

@vaf:
I am too sad about the fact he is dead now . I wish he was alive , this is unfair .. He was gone too soon just like Heath Ledger and many others before him .. May he find peace ..

My heart breaks for his loved ones. I’ve been trying to have a Glee marathon this weekend, but it’s been really tough. I don’t know how many times I myself have started crying. My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family, I know Cory will be very missed.

I can’t believe it, I see the news but I refuse to believe he’s gone :/
