via usmagazine.com The Glee cast is trying to move forward -- while keeping Cory Monteith close in their hearts. While appearing on Conan on Thursday, August 1, Darren Criss remembered the late actor, acknowledging that it's been hard for everyone involved since Monteith's tragic July 13 death.
The 26-year-old explained, "Obviously it’s been a very rough time, but when you start picking up the pieces after something as tragic as this, we’re picking up the pieces now, and there’s two things you gotta remember about Cory."
"One is he was a really funny guy, had a great sense of humor, he loved life, and he always took care of his friends and wanted his friends to be happy," he continued. "So it’s only right that we start to try to smile again, try to laugh again, that's something he would've wanted."
