‘Glee’ Cast Talks Series Finale on ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ (VIDEO)

March 12, 2015

Glee’ cast members Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Chord Overstreet, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Darren Criss opened about the series finale in a joint interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, giving fans a few hints of what is in store as the six years of the hugely popular musical series on Fox comes to an end.

It’s hard to believe we have arrived at this moment, that the famed series ‘Glee’ created by Ryan Murphy will come to an end after so many years. The show has become iconic and part of our pop culture, and we all know of the students of McKinley High School of Lima, Ohio as if they were our very own classmates.

If it’s bittersweet for the audience, just imagine for cast members, who, minus one, the late Cory Monteith, see the series come to an end as their lives and their characters’ lives couldn’t help but intertwine. Most especially for Lea Michele who was the onscreen and offscreen girlfriend of Monteith.

Assembled together, five of the cast members shared their thoughts on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’ Perhaps Jenna Ushkowitz summarized it best when she said, “It’s as if you take every family member and friend that you’ve ever loved and that you have to say goodbye to and put them all in front of you at once.”

Darren Criss in speaking of a particular scene said, “We were watching Matt Morrison sing us all a song so we were very much in our own world experiencing this and one take they pulled a fast one on us, they took Matt out of it and put basically the entire crew and production there looking at us.”

Lea Michele said of the scene, “We cried so hard that they actually cut. “We are loud criers, me and Jenna, it was like our vocal cords.”

And, too, there is Cory Monteith who had a special tribute episode devoted to him in a prior season which celebrated his character’s life while not explaining his untimely death.

Chord Overstreet said of the tribute to Cory Monteith in the finale that we have yet to see, “There’s a moment in the last episode that we had to and then obviously when we wrapped we all took a moment.” He added, “It was really cathartic. Of course you’re going to cry.”

Chris Colfer said of those moments, “He was there, though, we could feel him. He was there.”

Soon viewers will share in on the emotional sendoff, as the final episode of ‘Glee’ will have its broadcast premiere on Friday, March 20th. But in the meantime, as we count the days, watch the replay of the Glee cast’s interview with Ellen DeGeneres below!
