Update : 14 Jul 2013, 02:28 PM

The 31-year-old, Canadian actor Cory Monteith has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel. The actor played Finn Hudson in the Fox TV hit, was found dead at the Pacific Rim Hotel in the city centre on July 13, said police.

The cause of death was not immediately apparent, but police have ruled out foul play.

Monteith, who had been in the musical comedy since its 2009 start, was treated for drug addiction in April, and had a history of substance-abuse.

His body was found by Pacific Rim staff after he missed his check-out time at midday, said Vancouver’s Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard. Monteith had been dead for several hours, he added.

The actor had returned to his room at the Pacific Rim alone early on Saturday morning having been out with friends earlier in the evening, said Mr Lepard.

Monteith, who turned 31 on May 11, starred in Glee, an American musical dramedy, “Glee, ” as Finn Hudson, a high school football player who puts his status and popularity at risk to join the glee club and its outcast members. Ms Michele played his on-air girlfriend in Glee, Rachel Berry.The show, with its pop music-based musical numbers and high-profile guest stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, became an immediate hit and made stars of its relatively unknown cast.
