Lea Michele is remembering her late boyfriend Cory Monteith by donning a necklace with the name of his Glee character, Finn.
Currently, Michele and the rest of her Glee costars are filming a tribute episode to Monteith, who died of a heroin and alcohol overdose on July 31.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy previously expressed the difficulties of writing Finn out of the show. Murphy noted that the character will not die of an overdose as Monteith did in real life, rather, his death will not even be given a cause as Murphy hopes the episode will celebrate his life rather than his death.
According to E! News, Michele’s character will not be seen in the episode until the very end, when she will come out and sing and emotional song in tribute to Monteith’s life.
Following Monteith’s death it was announced that the new season of Glee would be pushed back and premiere September 19.
