That is so sad.
I don't even watch Glee that often, but I was so upset when I heard this. Mainly because I know he was dating Lea Michele, and I can't imagine how incredibly difficult this must be for her. Just so very sad...
Sad but not surprising.
I actually think this was surprising because he had tried to get help. He voluntarily checked into rehab recently. He had been dealing with addiction since he was 16, but never flaunted it like some celebrities. I don't even watch Glee but I was saddened by this.
It's very sad when anyone dies of an addiction. I agree it's not terribly surprising, though, and I don't say that because he's a celebrity and in an "it figures" sort of way. But he had struggled for so long and it's a difficult enough battle outside of stardom. Sad, sad.
I don't think there is any doubt he was getting support but he had a long history of problems (since 19 I think) so no, it's not really surprising to me at least.
This is very sad. My prayers go out to his family and loved ones.
I don't believe the cause of death has been determined, so I will withhold my judgement of "surprising" or not.
I never watched Glee, but this is so sad.
I think too because a lot of young people watch the show and probably look up to him.
I guess surprising is the wrong word, I was just deeply saddened. To struggle with addiction since 16 (he first went to rehab at 19) must be so difficult. I do think he is a good example of what a "functioning addict" looks like, and not what most people think of when they think of an addict.
Make that 13 according to news report. I agree with you. Report says he was extremely good at directing and always knew his lines thoroughly. I wouldn't never guess he was fighting demons.
It will be interesting to see how the show handles this.
I stopped watching Glee a few years ago. How sad to die so young. I feel terrible for his loved ones.
I was so sad when I read about his death this morning. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and coworkers. Only 31...
I've never watched Glee, but any life that's been cut short is a tradegy.
