VANCOUVER, Canada- An actor who played a key role in a popular musically based television show is found dead over the weekend.
Cory Monteith, who played heart-throb Finn Hudson on Glee, was discovered inside his hotel room after he missed his checkout time.
Police say Monteith’s cause of death was not immediately known but they ruled out foul play.
He spent time in rehab earlier this year for drug addiction treatment.
The star has been up front and honest about his struggles with substance abuse in the past, admitting in an interview he started using drugs at 13-years-old.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
