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.”

Ryan Murphy Announces Initiative to Take On Hollywood's Diversity Problem

Ryan Murphy, creator of Glee, American Horror Story, and American Crime Story, has just launched a new program called Half, which will mandate that half of the directors on his shows will be either women or minorities.

“I personally can do better,” the 50-year-old exec told THR. By the end of 2016, Ryan‘s goal is to have half of the directors on his shows be women and/or minorities.

“The industry has always been about, you come to us,” Ryan added. “There’s not a lot of effort and inclusion, and I’m saying, ‘No, we’re going to go to you.’”

Publicist Nanci Ryder‘s speech at The Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment breakfast really inspired Ryan to make this step. “Nanci said, ‘People in power, you have a position and responsibility to change the industry,’ and I thought, ‘She’s right.’”

Kardashian Kids Are Not the Focus in 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story'

Ryan Murphy takes the stage with John Travolta and Sarah Paulson to talk about his new show The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story at the FX portion of the 2016 Winter TCA Tour held at the Langham Huntington Hotel on Saturday (January 16) in Pasadena, Calif.

The trio was joined by the rest of the cast, including David Schwimmer, Cuba Gooding Jr., Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Sterling K. Brown, and Courtney B. Vance.

“In the 10 episodes, there are over 400 scenes that were written,” Ryan said (via EW). “Of those 400 scenes, only four or five of them involve the Kardashian children. That gives you a grasp on how important we felt they were to the story.”

Also in attendance at TCA that day were The Americans stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, Baskets creators Louis C.K. and Zach Galifianakis, and Atlanta‘s Donald Glover.
