Messaggi d’amore e di commiato da Mark Salling, Chord Overstreet, Naya Rivera, Dianna Agron & co. – Chi è entrato a far parte del cast di “Glee” non ha avuto solo una grande possibilità di avere successo nel mondo dello spettacolo, ma è entrato a far parte di una vera e propria famiglia. Il legame tra gli attori è infatti diventato veramente intenso negli anni e si sta manifestando pienamente proprio in questi difficili giorni. La morte di Cory Monteith è stata un duro colpo per i suoi colleghi ed ognuno lo saluta a modo suo.
Mark Salling è quello che ha esternato maggiormente il suo dolore: il tragico “no.”, pubblicato su Twitter quando aveva appena ricevuto la notizia, è stato successivamente cancellato e sostituito da un dolce messaggio: “Going through a million memories and emotions today. i’ll love you always Brother Cory”.
Dianna Agron ha affermato: “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. 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. 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. My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us”.
Naya Rivera ha detto: “The entire Glee family and I are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Cory was and always will be a part of my own family and a good friend. He was a special part of this world and will forever be missed. My heart goes out to Cory’s family and Lea and while we are grateful for everyone’s well wishes, privacy during this time of grief is greatly appreciated.”
Amber Riley ha twittato: “Yesterday I got to sit with my Glee family and remember a man I considered a brother and friend. With a very heavy heart, RIP Cory Monteith. Continued prayer for his family and Lea. Sendings hugs to all you gleeks.”
Jane Lynch ha parlato di Cory durante un’intervista televisiva: “Well, Cory was one of the biggest hearts and was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that knew he was rarefied air from the gifts this show, this wonderful show gave us. He was always aware that it was a gift. He was quite generous and one of those adventurous types of people. You know, I always admired how he’d get up and fly to Mexico, throw parties for his friends. I don’t think he left one day un-lived. He was a real bright light in our family. We’ve lost a really great guy.”
Darren Criss ha preferito astenersi dal commentare l’accaduto ed ha annullato diverse interviste, ma ha indossato un fiocco nero in segno di lutto “per un Amico” come ha lui stesso affermato.
Infine l’hanno ricordato musicalmente sia Matthew Morrison che Chord Overstreet, che durante il suo concerto gli ha dedicato questa toccante canzone:
