Which Cory Monteith Prop Did Lea Michele Take Home from ‘Glee’?

After nearly six years of filming, Glee will have its final episode in mid-March.

Perhaps no one owes more to the show or will miss it more than its star, Lea Michele, who portrayed the perky and type-A Rachel Berry.

Glee‘s female lead since the pilot episode, Lea Michele dated her character’s love interest in real life, Cory Monteith who played Finn, from 2011 until his shocking death in 2013.

The absence was clearly felt by Michele in her personal life, but perhaps even more so on the Glee set and amongst all of the show’s millions of fans. Following Monteith’s – and, subsequently, Finn’s – death, his character’s football jersey was framed and hung in the fictional music room.

After Glee finished filming for good this past Saturday (Feb. 21), various cast members posted tweets and pictures showing their emotional goodbyes.

Perhaps the most poignant picture is the one that Lea Michele shared of her walking away from the studio carrying Finn’s framed jersey, a permanent and meaningful reminder of the loss of her fellow actor, co-star, and on-and-offscreen boyfriend.
