Jane Lynch Comments on Mark Salling's Death: 'This Is a Very Sad End to It'

Jane Lynch is providing further comment about the death of her Glee co-star Mark Salling, who died in an apparent suicide at the age of 35 earlier this week.

“It’s been tough. He was a troubled, troubled guy, and he always was. This is a very sad end to it, but I know that he’s at peace now. He’s in the arms of a beneficent force,” Jane told Us Weekly. “I know life was very, very hard for Mark. I think we all do the best we can at the end of the day.”

“He was a hard guy to get to know,” she continued. Adding about her memories of him, she said, “He took videos of the stages and everything. He was so happy to be coming to work, to be on the show. He wrote a song and videotaped his day being on Glee,. Driving into the Paramount lot … at that time he was living on a cot in a little room. It was a big jump for him in his career, and also, he had a job and was in with this group of really great kids. I think he knew that he was breathing rarefied air. There was so much joy and happiness in his musical video that he shot for himself. Fox made him take it down. But it was a sweet, beautiful expression of his joy and being in Glee.”

Jane previously issued another response to Mark‘s death on the day the news broke.

If you don’t know, back in December, Salling had plead guilty to possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor. Photos were allegedly found on his computer. Mark was expected to get 4 to 7 years in prison as a part of an apparent plea deal. He was previously arrested in December 2015 on the charges.
