Cory Monteith's Last Video

“Glee” fans everywhere were shocked on Sunday when it was revealed that actor Cory Monteith, who played tough jock/sensitive singer Finn Hudson on the hit show, had died of unknown causes in his Vancouver hotel room.

Now, the fresh wound reopens as a video the actor recorded for a fan has resurfaced on Youtube. It is thought to be his last.

According to The Huffington Post, a flight attendant on an Air Canada flight from Japan to Vancouver asked Monteith to talk to her boyfriend’s daughter, Mallory.

Monteith says, “Mallory, hey, I’m Cory, I’m Sheila’s friend. I wanted to record this video for you guys just to let you know to stay out of trouble and stay in school.”

An autopsy has since revealed that Monteith, who was dating co-star Lea Michele, died of a heroin overdose. Monteith had struggled with addiction issues in the past and had recently gone through rehab.

Jewish girlfriend Lea Michele has been MIA since the news broke, with her reps asking for privacy during this devastating time.

“Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them,” Michele’s representatives said in a statement on Tuesday. “They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together.”
