Jenna Ushkowitz has finally released a statement regarding co-star, Cory Monteith's tragic passing.
The Glee actress posted the following statement on Instagram with a vintage cast photo:
"I am so grateful that Glee brought this group of extraordinary individuals together to form a family. I was lucky enough to closely experience the love and light that Cory shared with the world, as well as having the privilege of traveling down the road together on a once in a lifetime journey. Cory always reminded me to be gracious, kind and open, and he will leave a mark in my heart forever. Thank you everyone for your constant support and love while we mourn the loss of our dear friend, and continued support to Cory's family, and to Lea."
Many other cast members have expressed their heartache for Cory, and especially Lea!
We have a feeling filming season 5 will be a true test for this Glee family, especially since they are planning for a tribute episode to honor the late actor.
Rest easy, Cory.
