Lea Michele - Lea Michele: 'There Was No Greater Man Than Cory Monteith'

Actress Lea Michele has opened up for the first time about losing her real-life and onscreen boyfriend Cory Monteith, explaining she feels like she has "lost two people".

Michele and Monteith were together as a real-life couple for over a year before his death in July (13) from an accidental drug overdose, and their Glee characters had been on/off Tv lovers since the show began.

She tells Tv Week Australia, "For me personally, I've lost two people - Cory and Finn."

Michele was the driving force behind the upcoming Finn tribute episode of Glee, which will air in America on Thursday (10Oct13), and she admits she felt the sombre show was needed: "We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the (fictional school) auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic."

Michele, who returned to the set a few weeks after Monteith's death, admits her Tv work has been a big help to her as she mourns her boyfriend's death.

She explains, "Everyone is asking, 'Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?', but the truth is it's no harder at work than it is in life. So we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together."

And the actress insists she is not focusing on the negative, but remembering the good times she spent with Monteith.

She continues, "I really woke up every single day feeling like I was being in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life... There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together I consider myself very lucky."
