Tragic actor Cory Monteith recorded a touching message to a fan just weeks before his death, urging her to stay out of trouble and remain in school.
The Glee star was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, Canada on Saturday (13Jul13). A coroner ruled he died from a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol.
Video footage of Monteith has now emerged showing the star filming a heart-warming message to a fan during a flight to Japan last month (Jun13). It is believed to be the last footage of the actor.
After an air stewardess asked Monteith to record a clip for her boyfriend's daughter Mallory, the smiling star says to the camera, "Hey Mallory, it's Cory. I wanted to record this video for you guys just to let you know to stay out of trouble and stay in school."
A group of Monteith's closest friends will gather at his Los Angeles home on Friday (19Jul13) to take part in a special memorial. His remains were cremated on Tuesday (16Jul13).
