Monteith and Michele met on Ryan Murphy’s hit television musical, “Glee”, in 2009, where they played onscreen sweethearts Finn Hudson and Rachel Berry. The show ran for 6 seasons, 4 of which included the Canadian actor as the popular quarterback.
Unfortunately, Monteith was found dead at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver on 13th July 2013. The actor, who was 31 years old at the time, died of a “mixed drug toxicity” of heroin and alcohol.
Michele also remembered Monteith on the 2nd and 3rd-year anniversaries of his passing. In 2016, she tweeted, “I know everyday you’re watching over me, and smiling. Love and miss you Cory, everyday, but today a little more.”
In speaking with “Women’s Health”, the actress revealed that she got 3 tattoos to remember her late love – a number 5 (the number on Finn Hudson’s football jersey), the name “Finn” on her butt cheek, and the phrase “If you say so” (the name of the single she wrote about Monteith) on her ribcage.
We’ll always remember you Cory Monteith. Rest in peace.
