Ryan Murphy on the difficulty of shooting next week’s “Glee” Cory Monteith tribute – see a preview
Below is video of next week’s Glee episode that deals with the death of the character of Finn Hudson.
It has a real heaviness because Finn was one of the show’s central characters plated by Cory Monteith who died of an accidental drug overdose in July.
The show’s co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy tells The Wrap: “It was incredibly difficult to work on, it was very difficult to shoot. The interesting thing about that show is that those actors and the creators really, really loved Cory. ”
“Almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance, because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it. I’ve never seen a crew where you can’t continue shooting because they left the room sobbing,” Murphy added. “It was very hard, and I struggled even working on it, because you’re seeing what they felt about not just Finn, but Cory. So I think it’s amazing performances across the board, and everybody went into it with a lot of love.”
“People still are not over it,” Murphy said. “It’s still very, very difficult.”
