Rest in peace Cory Monteith

Cory+Monteith+17th+Annual+SAG+Awards+Rr5eeeNvjYsxIt is a sad day for the family and friends of Cory Monteith, as well as for his fans, who learned this morning about the sudden death of the 31 year old actor. Cory Monteith had been found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver by the hotel staff after he failed to check out of the room, earlier that morning.

Known mostly for his role as Finn Hudson in the hit TV show Glee, Monteith has gained international fame both as a musician and an actor, his character being  a fan favourite as well as acclaimed by critics.

Supernatural fans might remember him from the episode Wendigo and science-fiction fans might be surprised to learn that he’d made episodic appearances in shows such as Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Smallville or Kyle XY.

Despite his young age he’s made his mark on the world, both through his roles and his personal deeds, which, according to those whose lives he’s touched, had brought important changes to the way they viewed themselves and those around them. His participation in anti-bullying campaigns, in charity actions and in educating young people about the dangers of drug use have also made him a memorable individual, given his own struggles with addiction.

His death had been a blow to the acting community, with tweets and messages of condolences coming from actors, musicians and writers alike flooding twitter early this morning.

While the cause of his death is still unknown and the theories abound, we would like any of you that would like to express their opinion on the matter to do so respectfully. Whether you are a fan or not, there are lines that should not be crossed, because while he might have passed away, the people that have been left behind are the ones that will carry the weight of your words, so please keep that in mind.

What's there to say about me? I love the sci-fi and fantasy genre when I read, but I am in no way limited to that alone. I do think Frank Herbert deserves a statue for his writing(if there is one, point me in that direction, please). I enjoy writing quite a lot, but I am also kinda lazy. If you want to make me happy give me books or Doctor Who collectibles. Or a real TARDIS, in which case I will love you forever.
