Jane Lynch appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote her new series "Hollywood Game Night", but the host couldn't resist asking her about former co-star Cory Monteith.

Lynch appeared visibly upset but paid a touching tribute to the star, who died earlier this week as a result of lethal overdose of heroin and alcohol, according to the autopsy.

"He was always aware that it was a gift", Lynch said about Glee, the show that made Monteith a household name.

Lynch had only good things to say about Monteith, stating, "I don't think he left one day unlived... We've lost a really great guy."
