Canadian actor, Cory Monteith, star of musical TV series “Glee”, was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday. The 31-year-old singer and actor who played Glee’s upbeat and popular character, Finn Hudson, had been staying at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. When the actor missed his scheduled check-out time, staff went to his room and found his body. The cause of death is unknown, but authorities have ruled out foul play. An autopsy will be conducted on Monday.
Monteith had been open about his history with substance abuse. He struggled with the issue as a teenager and checked himself into rehab in March.
Fellow cast members have taken to Twitter to express their grief. Monteith had an off-screen romance with co-star Lea Michele and the actress has asked the public for privacy during this time.
