THUMBS UP! Cory’s death is such a waste

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

THE tragic death of star Cory Mon­teith is just so sad.

He was only 31 – it’s such a waste of a tal­ented ac­tor.

Glee is a global phe­nom­e­non and he was cat­a­pulted to world­wide fame overnight. It ob­vi­ously took its toll.

By con­ci­dence, I watched a doc­u­men­tary on satel­lite TV about Cory. It was all about his bat­tle with drugs and the prob­lems he had away from the cam­eras.

Des­per­ate

Af­ter watch­ing it I re­ally hoped that he would turn his life around but it seems, sadly, he wasn’t able to.

I sus­pect he was let down by peo­ple who could have helped him and I think there are peo­ple out there who need to take some re­spon­si­bil­ity for what hap­pened. Surely some­one must have known how des­per­ate he had be­come and could have tried to help.

I just think it is such a tragic waste of a life. He showed in his short life he was po­ten­tially an amaz­ing and tal­ented ac­tor des­tined for great things.

It is such a shame that we have to lose such tal­ent to drugs.

More needs to be done to warn th­ese young rich stars of the dangers of drugs, drink and what­ever other temp­ta­tions that lie in wait for them –they need to make sure they have peo­ple around who can help them if they do get in­volved with drugs.

We need to learn from this to try to stop it hap­pen­ing to any­body else.
