Kevin Zegers, one of Cory Monteith’s friends and final co-stars, recently opened up to Bello magazine about the Glee star’s tragic passing.
It turns out Kevin was in Vancouver when news broke of Cory’s accidental overdose — he said:
“There was a group of us who were there for the whole finding out up until now, and it’s been very, very strange.”
The actor revealed that he’d even brought back some of Cory’s ashes on his return to Los Angeles. He explained:
“He’s probably the closest person I’ve ever lost… It was a heavy and weird month. Cory was the nicest man I knew. It’s a f***ing horrible disease.”
Kevin, clearly still trying to make sense of the event, added:
“By the grace of God, I’m not dead… I think it’s something that constantly reveals itself as something that happens to people who, for whatever reason, don’t get well, and it was by no lack of him trying or anyone else trying to help him get well. Eventually, your body just says, ‘No, it’s enough.’ But it doesn’t make it any less sad or tragic. I think the problem people had was that he looked healthy and he never showed the struggles he was having.”
Kevin, it sounds like you were a wonderful friend.
