Cory Monteith, a 31 year old boyish-looking guy who hit big-time stardom by playing singing quarterback Finn Hudson on the hit TV series “Glee’ had died on July 13,2013 in his hotel room in downtown Vancouver,Canada.
Known to be laid-back, humble and a good-natured guy inspite of his fame, the Canadian-born native had been vocally outspoken of his ongoing battles with substance abuse since age 13 and repeated stints with rehab,the last one on April 2013.
He was often described as a triple threat—great actor,singer and dancer and as the “next Hugh Jackman” who recently received an Oscar nomination for his role in the musicale film Les Miserables.
Cory had a great showbiz career with great expectations of being a much greater entertainer in the coming years but which was sadly aborted by his untimely death. An autopsy is to be done today to look into probable cause of death.
Cory also had a loving and supportive family and girlfriend, Glee co-star Lea Michele.
My heart goes out to all of them in this very sad moment.
Cory, life had been short for you. If your departure from this world is by means of your untimely death, then it’s your final act.
If you were only given a chance to sing one last time, that would have been one heck of a memorable swan song.
Thanks for entertaining us with your great voice! I’m sure that the angels from above are joining you in chorus right now.
Rest in piece!
