The 12-second clip, entitled the ‘Cory Monteith Memorial Card‘, shows the 31-year-old actor’s character Finn Hudson in various scenes from throughout his four years on the hit US TV show. Making several appearances in the video montage is Cory’s girlfriend Lea, who played Finn’s on-screen love interest Rachel Berry.
The clip ends with a simple message, reading: ‘Cory Monteith: Forever in our hearts’. Over a million people have viewed the tribute footage since it was posted, with fans also having shared their own memorial messages to the Canadian actor.
Since Cory died last month from a lethal overdose of heroine and alcohol, girlfriend Lea has been putting on a brave face, with the actress returning to the Glee set last week for the first time since Cory’s passing.
The 26-year-old actress was also seen celebrating friend Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s baby shower in Beverly Hills, California, over the weekend, where Lea managed to raise a smile as she was escorted to the event surrounded by her girlfriends.
The new season of Glee will air on September 26, with a special tribute episode to Cory planned for the third episode.
