VANCOUVER (CBSLA.com) — Police in Vancouver say actor and “Glee” star Cory Monteith has been found dead in a hotel room.
Monteith was 31.
The Canadian-born Monteith was open about his battles with drugs and entered rehab a few months ago.
Raised by a single mother, Monteith first started battling drugs and alcohol when he was 16. He credited an intervention three years later with turning his life around.
Monteith had a series of guest roles in shows like “Kyle XY,” “Supernatural” and “Stargate Atlantis.” On the big screen, he had small roles in movies like “Whisper” and “Final Destination 3.”
It was “Glee” – where he played kind and understanding football player turned choral singer Finn Hudson, that made him a big TV star.
Monteith was involved off-camera with on-screen girlfriend Lea Michele.
When Monteith returned to rehab a few months ago, she publicly supported him and the decision to get help.
