It has been confirmed that Glee actor Cory Monteith has died at the age 31.
The Canadian actor – who played Finn Hudson on the hit FOX series – was found on Saturday in his hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver.
Cory – who completed a stint of rehab in April for substance addiction – was last pictured with his girlfriend Lea Michele just last month.
The news was confirmed by Vancouver Police at a press conference on Saturday night.
No cause of death has been confirmed at this point, but there were said to be no implications of foul play.
Medical examiners will conduct an autopsy on Monday.
Acting Chief Doug LePard read in a statement: ‘Shortly after noon today, the Vancouver Police received a call from the BC Ambulance Service regarding a sudden death in a room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel at 1038 Canada Place in downtown Vancouver.’
Confirming: ‘The deceased has been identified as 31-year-old actor Cory Monteith, who achieved great fame on the popular TV series Glee.’
Before giving out further information, LePard said: ‘I want to pass on our condolences to the family, friends, castmates and millions of fans of Mr. Monteith.’
Cory had checked into the hotel on July 6 and had been due to check out on Saturday.
However, video footage had shown the actor returning to his room by himself after an evening out with friends on Friday.
News channel CTV British Columbia tweeted the news shortly before it was confirmed saying: ‘Sources tell CTV Glee star Cory #Monteith found dead today in Vancouver. Police expected to confirm at 10:30.’
