Dianna Agron on Cory Monteith's Death: 'We Will Miss You'

Dianna Agron has released a statement about her Glee co-star Cory Monteith‘s tragic death over the weekend.

“I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile,” the 27-year-old actress told THR. “Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry.”

“We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there,” she said. “Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family,” Dianna continued.

“My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend,” Dianna concluded. “We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”
