Ryan Murphy Talks Cory Monteith's Death: 'It Was Like Losing a Child'

Ryan Murphy is opening up about the death of his Glee star Cory Monteith in a new interview three years after the tragic loss.

The television producer talked about the last time he saw Cory, which was when the actor visited the set of The Normal Heart with girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele.

“We hugged, and the last thing he said was ‘I love you, man, and thank you for helping me get better.’ And then the next thing I knew he was dead. It was like losing a child,” Ryan told Entertainment Weekly.

“What started off as being such a great celebration of love and acceptance ultimately became about darkness and death,” Ryan added about moving on with the show after the death. “It was a great lesson in what not to do moving forward. And many of them are my good friends to this day.”
