Glee star Kevin McHale has described the upcoming Cory Monteith tribute episode as "extremely emotional."
McHale, who plays Artie Abrams on the hit Fox show, told TV Line that at times the shoot has been "hard to get through," revealing: “There are so many incredibly well written and powerful scenes.”
The actor singled out one particular moment in the episode, saying: “When [the cast] got the script, we were all reading it together and we were like, ‘Did you get to that one scene.’ And when you see it everyone will know what that one scene is.”
McHale added that some of his co-stars found it difficult to react to the news of Finn Hudson's death as their characters, rather than as themselves.
Kevin continued: “[Some cast members] are having to play reactions that they obviously would not feel in real-life, and that’s a weird thing to play. Because you want people to know how you actually feel.
"But [Ryan Murphy & Co. are staying true to] the characters, and that’s the smart thing to do.”
The star finished the interview by saying: “Some people aren’t dealing with the loss of Finn, and it’s a difficult thing because in real life none of us were like that. We were all very much dealing with it.”
Cory Monteith, who played the much-loved character Finn Hudson, was found dead as a result of a drug and alcohol overdose on July 13.
The Glee tribute episode is slated to air in the US on October 10.
