Lea Michele hasn't said much publicly since her boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith was found dead of a drug overdose in July.
But she had some sweet and personal things to say to TV Week Australia.
"I feel like, for me personally, I've lost two people: Cory and Finn," she tells the magazine.
She never considered quitting the show. "Everyone is asking: 'Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?', but the truth is it's no harder at work than it is in life so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together."
And she felt fortunate to have known him. "I really woke up every single day feeling like I was ... in some sort of spell or something, that I was lucky enough to have him in my life," the actress said. "There was no greater man than Cory, so for the time we spent together, I consider myself very lucky."
Glee's episode dealing with Monteith's death airs tonight.
