As Glee fans, the death of Cory Monteith is just something we don't think we'll ever get over.
After his passing in 2013, Cory's struggle with addiction was something that has been well documented. However, it is only recently that we learnt about the large role that Glee creator Ryan Murphy played in helping Cory.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lea Michele and Ryan shared how Cory's death affected them almost immediately.
The creator of the show even shared the last thing Cory said to him... we'll warn you now, this is heartbreaking.
"We hugged, and the last thing he said was 'I love you, man, and thank you for helping me get better'. And then the next thing I knew he was dead. It was like losing a child."
Lea also shared in the interview how much Ryan helped her following Cory's untimely passing.
"When I found out, Ryan was one of the first peopole I called. When Cory was alive, Ryan was very helpful in trying to get him well and healthy but, when that day did come, Ryan did take change and he helped me more than I can ever explain. He completely cared for me. He made sure I was okay every single day, whether it was coming over to his house and having dinner prepared for me, or making sure I was okay at work," Lea told Entertainment Weekly.
Creator of the show Ryan also asked Lea if she wanted to continue working on the show. Lea said, " He sat me down and said, 'What do you want to do? Do you want to continue the show? Do you want it end? I just said, 'I just want to go back to work.' His heart is bigger than I think he knows what to do with someimtes."
Pass us the tissues please.
