Adam Lambert admits Glee appearance could be delayed due to Cory Monteith’s death & Amber Riley pays tribute!


Adam Lambert has admitted that his forthcoming appearance on ‘Glee’ could be delayed due to the shock death of actor Cory Monteith.

The handsome star played Finn Hudson on the hit Fox musical drama and it had been confirmed earlier this month that Lambert would join Cory and the cast for a special episode. However in a new interview with Ryan Seacrest Adam admitted that Monteith’s premature passing could change the course of the series this year.

Initial plans were good Adam said, explaining:

“I had a meeting with Mr Ryan Murphy, who is incredible and we brainstormed a little bit about what could possibly be my role. So it’s kind of still in development. I don’t know when I start, but I’m so excited.”

However the shocking and tragic news about Cory’s death could well throw a spanner in the works as his absence will need to now be explained in new storylines. Lambert added:

“This weekend gave us some really tragic news that might put a bit of a spin on things, but I hope that altogether – the cast and myself – we can honour Cory’s memory somehow. I’m sure they’ll find a tasteful way to do so.”

Adam wasn’t a close friend of the star but he had some nice words to say about Cory and told the American Idol host:

“I think I met him in passing once and I’m sorry I didn’t get to know him better as everyone has such beautiful things to say about him.”

Meanwhile ‘Glee’ star Amber Riley has become the latest celebrity to pay tribute to her friend.

The actress – best known as Mercedes Jones – took to Twitter to praise Cory and mourn his loss, after it was revealed that his death was caused by a mixture of heroin and alcohol.

Riley tweeted:

“Yesterday I got to sit with my Glee family and remember a man I considered a brother and friend. With a very heavy heart, RIP Cory Monteith 💜 Continued prayer for his family and Lea. Sendings hugs to all you gleeks.”

Jane Lynch ( who plays the role of Sue Sylvester on Glee) spoke about Monteith on ‘The Tonight Show’ and told the presenter that he had “one of the biggest hearts”. She added:

“I don’t think he left one day unlived. He was a real bright light in our family and we’ve lost a really great guy.”
