It’s no surprise to hear that Glee’s upcoming Season 5, Episode 3tribute to Cory Monteith (Finn) will be incredibly powerful, so we’re fully expecting to do some serious bawling when it airs. And we’re only going to be watching it — so we can hardly imagine how tough things have been on the actors and crew members who are shooting it.
"We're in the middle of filming it, and it's incredibly hard," Matthew Morrison (Will) tells E! Online. “We've mourned Cory, but now we're mourning Finn. So it's kind of like two people in that one person.”
However, Matty says he is blown away by Lea Michele’s (Rachel) strength during the whole process, as indeed we all have been. "It's incredibly hard, and we're staying strong together, and I have to say Lea has been the most strongest of all of us," he continues.
In fact, one unforeseen silver lining to the whole tragedy is that the Glee team is now even tighter than they ever have been. "I think we all knew we were very close, but I think this just kind of solidified it like we are a rock for each other right now," Matthew says. "It's quite a beautiful thing."
We admire Matthew for finding some positive in this very devastating situation, and we look forward to the tribute episode providing some closure for Finn and Cory.
