Lea Michele will surely need all the love and support she can get.

We're so happy to hear that those closest to her are flocking to her after the sudden death of Cory Monteith in Vancouver this weekend.

It is now being reported that her former Glee and Spring Awakening costar Jonathan Groff has dropped everything to be by her side.

Her good friend is currently working on The Normal Heart , but knew that he needed to be with Lea during this difficult and emotional time. A source who knows someone working with Jonathan in Manhattan on the film, revealed:

"I was really sad for Lea. My friend in New York is working as a stage hand on the set of The Normal Heart with Jonathan Groff and he told me they canceled filming so that Jonathan could go be with her."

This won't be an easy time for Lea, but hopefully all the support helps her heal. We only hope the best for her in recovering from this loss.

Our thoughts are with Lea and all of Cory's loved ones.

    While I believe most of this post, productions do not cancel filming for anything (except maybe the death of an actor staring in the film)
    It is nice that Lea's friends are running to help her as this must be the most difficult time in her life and my deepest condolences go out to her.
    However, productions do not cancel filming. They go on and on. Each day of filming costs hundreds of thousands of dollars and they do not stop just so a friend can go and help another friend.

    Also, to the idiot first poster of this article, you are a major loser!

    The creator of Glee also created that movie so he may have stopped production in honor of him.

    Re: Ms. B Nice – isn't the showrunner and producer of Clee also producing this movie, so actually I'm sure it was cancelled.

    @mRe: Ms. B Nice – I have not read the shooting script for the movie of The Normal Heart but I actually directed a production of the play by Larry Kramer. If it is at all similar, Jonathan Groff's character (Craig) is extremely small and, though it's possible that it was expanded for the film version, I'm sure Groff's absence wouldn't put the entire project to a halt. Ryan Murphy, on the other hand, the director of The Normal Heart and creator of Glee, might have decided to stop filming for now as he tries to sort out details about the next season of Glee and offer comfort to those close to Cory. If production of The Normal Heart was stopped it was definitely not just because Jonathan Groff needed to go to Lea Michele. It was probably because of Ryan Murphy.

    Re: Ms. B Nice

    I think they would cancel filming because The Normal Heart is directed by Ryan Murphy. I'm sure Ryan is also shaken by the death of Cory.

    This is not a judgement. But I just wanna say…

    You were EFFING so stupid, Cory!!! Why should you consume that effing demonic things?!

    I really love watching Glee. I even can't decide whose my favorite character after Kurt! All of them are inspirations. Keeping me sane to my effing boring life. Okay, I know they are not real person. Fictions. They have another lives outside the screen. BUT I just…

    Okay, I can't describe my real feeling right now in words. Actually I'm sad and… disappointed and sorry for this kind of ending for someone as great as good like Cory Monteith. His role in Glee really touched my heart so deeply. And his death is the first celebrity's death that makes me feel like wanna crying. And hope this is just a bad dream. (I used to be the kind of a person that not giving any damn about celebrity's death.) AND I HOPE HE'S NOT THIS STUPID!!! :( ( :( ( :( ((((

    RIP, Cory. Hope you have a good spot in Heaven with God. And my condolence for Lea and all family Cory's left.

    PS: Sorry if this comment bothers you, readers. I just need a spot to spit out my thought.

    Re: baby mongo snr – You are truly the scum of the earth and everything that is wrong with this pathetic society. I hope one day you feel even a fraction of the pain that this talented young woman is going through and that you have someone like you in your life that will beat you down and say hurtful things. Karma is a b*tch. I hope it breaks you
