The cast of "Glee" is taking time to remember Cory Monteith, gathering for a private memorial on Thursday.
In a statement to "E News!," Fox said "Glee" producer Ryan Murphy and actress Lea Michele brought the group together for the first time since Monteith's passing to "share memories and music in an emotional celebration" of Cory's life. The actor, who played Finn Hudson on the show, died unexpectedly in Vancouver earlier this month at the age of 31. His cause of death was determined to be the result of a mix of alcohol and heroin. Cory had struggled with substance abuse since he was a teenager.
His co-star and girlfriend Lea has remained out of the public eye since his passing but Murphy revealed in an interview with E! that she was involved in the decision to have his character die on the show's upcoming season.
