Last week, Glee co-star Dianna Agron issued her own statement about her fallen friend, Cory Monteith. "I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile," Agron said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry."
"We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there," Agron said about Glee. "Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone's hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me but my family."
