It was a sad day for the cast of Glee, who gathered at Paramount Studios on Thursday in memory of Cory Monteith. Cory's costars — including Kevin McHale, Dianna Agron, Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Harry Shum Jr. — then met for lunch together, where they exchanged hugs and stayed close in support of one another. The memorial celebration came less than two weeks after Cory's sudden and tragic death, and the event reportedly drew over 150 people, including Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy. All of the guests wore black ribbons and shared memories and listened to music in celebration of Cory's life. Though Glee's production and premiere were pushed back to allow time for grieving, the cast will be headed back to work in August to start shooting season five, which will include a special tribute episode to Finn, Cory's character on the series.
