Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room Saturday afternoon. He was 31.

A cause of death was not given and foul play was not suspected.

According to reports, hotel staff discovered his body after he missed his check-out time.

“We are deeply saddened by this tragic news,” said Glee producers in a joint statement with Fox. “Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”

Last March, Monteith entered rehab for substance addiction, forcing Glee to write him out of Season 4′s final stretch. Upon his release one month later, the actor said to fans, ”Sending out big love to everyone. Thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me!”

He made his first public appearance last month when he attended Chrysalis Butterfly Ball charity gala in Los Angeles with girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele.

Monteith’s colleagues and friends took to Twitter early Sunday morning to express their shock and grief.

RIP CoryMontieth. You will be loved. Always.
