Lea Michele: 'I've Lost Two People,
Cory and Finn'

WITH just a few hours until the most anticipated Glee episode, the tribute to Cory Monteith, Lea Michele opens about Glee, the memorial episode, and cast. The actress admits it feels like "I've lost two people, Cory and Finn," and that the "The Quarterback" was very therapeutic.

"We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium, and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him," Lea Michele told TV Week Australia. "It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn."

On the question on everyone lips, if the actress ever considered leaving Glee after the tragic death of Cory, Lea said:

"Everyone is asking, 'Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work? … But the truth is it's no harder at work than it is in life, so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together."

“[the episode] was perfect ... it was something we all needed to do together.”

Though the tribute episode, titled "The Quarterback", never explains how Finn died, the action takes place a few weeks after his funeral, with the glee club gathering to say farewell to their friend.

"I really woke up every single day feeling like I was … in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life," Michele told TV Week Australia. "There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together, I consider myself very lucky."

Exciting to see tribute episode for Finn/Cory? We are counting the minutes.
