It’s been a difficult time these past few months for Gleeks, the Glee cast, and of course Cory Monteith’s family and friends, after his tragic death two months ago.
In tribute, Ryan Murphy and co. decided to write and dedicate an episode to Finn in Cory Monteith’s honour. Titled ‘The Quarterback’ – referring to the position Finn Hudson played in the football team, which can also be interpreted as Finn’s role in the Glee club, the leader. Click here for a full round-up on 5×03 ‘The Quarterback’.
What came as a surprise to most Glee fans was the fact that Dianna Agron who played Quinn on the FOX hit-musical, was NOT going to appear in the tribute episode. A massive disappointment seeing as Quinn was an important part of Finn’s character, dating on and off throughout season one and two. Again, to read more about this click here.
Agron has recently been promoting her new film The Family (which was released on Friday), which stars some of Hollywood’s biggest names; Robert DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones.
In an interview with Katie Couric on her show, Katie, a visibly teary Dianna spoke about remembering her late co-star. Gracefully answering Couric’s question, Agron had nothing but praise for Monteith saying ‘he was one of the most amazing people that I’ve ever met’ and that ‘it’s one of those things that still doesn’t seem real’.

The tribute episode of Glee will air 10th October on FOX.
