Chris Colfer: 'Returning to 'Glee' after Cory Monteith's death will help us all to reconnect'

Singer and actor Chris Colfer has confessed that while the past few weeks have been incredibly tough for the cast of 'Glee' following Cory Monteith's death, they're all excited to return to work.

In mid-July, 31-year-old Monteith was found dead in a hotel room in Canada and it was confirmed that he passed away at the hands of a heroin and alcohol overdose, and Colfer now explained to the hosts of 'Live with Kelly and Michael' that getting back on set will help them grieve:

"It's been a rough couple of weeks. But we're hanging in there. We're doing good. We started (filming) on Monday. I haven't been there yet myself, but I think it'll be good to kind of reconnect with everyone."

In a different interview, Colfer admitted that stepping back into his role of Kurt Hummel without having Monteith to play his step-brother will be hard: "We've had bumps and dips along the road over the course of the years, but nothing like this. I know we've always come together - always - in the past, because we are such a family in the cast and the crew. I'm assuming things will be very different, and I'm sure they'll be difficult at first. But... We'll see. I think I'm positive."
