The stars of Glee have opened up about filming the highly-anticipated Cory Monteith tribute episode, with Darren Criss calling it "tough to shoot" and Naya Rivera labelling the experience "the worst week ever."
Speaking to E! News on the red carpet at the 2013 MTV VMAs over the weekend, Rivera, who plays Santana Lopez, revealed:
"It's the worst thing that's ever happened to me. It is the hardest thing to do. It's been the worst week ever."
Meanwhile Criss, who plays Blaine Anderson on the hit show, added: "We're shooting it right now. It's tough to shoot."
"It's something that needs to happen for the fans. I don't know; it's going to be tough.
He continued: "But it will be very poignant and hopefully very moving, and just that: a tribute. Hopefully it will be a good tribute to Cory."
Co-star Matthew Morrison also discussed the difficulties the cast has faced in dealing with Monteith's character Finn Hudson's death.
He told E! News over the weekend: "We're in the middle of filming and it's incredibly hard.
"We've mourned Cory, but now we're mourning Finn. So it's kind of like two people in that one person."
Monteith was found dead in his hotel room as a result of an overdose in Vancouver, Canada on July 13. He was 31 years old.
