Lea Michele Wraps "Glee", Takes Cory Monteith’s Football Jersey as Memento

You’re gonna need to the tissues for this one, Gleeks. The cast of “Glee” finished shooting the show’s final season this weekend, but Lea Michele couldn't leave the set without taking one very special item.

The 28-year-old actress took the No. 5 jersey worn by Finn, her character’s on-screen sweetheart played by her off-screen love, the late Cory Monteith. Leah shared a picture of herself walking away with the memento along with the caption, “One last thing.”

Before the final day of filming, the star tweeted, “I can’t believe tomorrow is our last day at glee. It is going to be such an emotional day. But I’m so grateful though to have had…this incredibly amazing experience,” she said. “Thank you so much to all of our amazing Gleeks who supported us so much! I love you guys. We were so lucky to have had the most amazing crew who worked so hard everyday to make the show amazing. I’m so grateful for them…So thank you all again so much from the bottom of my heart. I will miss Rachel Berry so very much."

After years of battling addiction, Cory died of a drug overdose in July 2013. He was 31.
