Jane Lynch Pays Tribute to ‘Glee’ Star Cory Monteith at 2013 Emmys [VIDEO]

Jane Lynch delivered an incredibly moving tribute to her fallen ‘Glee‘ costar Cory Monteith at the 2013 Emmys.

“It is remarkable, and perhaps a little curious, how quickly television shows become like families,” Lynch began.
“This summer on our show, ‘Glee,’ we suffered a painful death in our family: Cory Monteith played Finn Hudson, a star quarterback turned wide-eyed, heartfelt glee singer. And from the first time you saw Cory he had a star quality and a general sweetness that made it impossible not to fall in love with him … and millions did fall in love with Cory.”

Lynch’s voice shook slightly as she added, “I’m here to say that all that warmth and that charm, that openhearted quality that we loved in Cory was no act.”

“Cory was a beautiful soul. He was not perfect, which many of us here tonight can relate to,” she said of the star, who died of a heroin overdose this summer. “His death is a tragic reminder of the rapacious, senseless destruction that is brought on by addiction. Tonight, we remember Cory for all he was and mourn the loss for all he could have been. To a generation that loved Cory so, please know, this gifted and wonderful young man was worthy of your love,” she urged. “And, if you were lucky enough to know Cory as we did, and witness firsthand Cory’s goofy, breezy sense of humor, his natural instinct for inclusiveness and his unbridled sense of generosity day in and day out, I promise you’d have loved him even more.”
