Jane Lynch can't bring herself to read the script for Glee's tribute episode to its late star Cory Monteith.
The 53-year-old actress - who plays tough-talking Sue Sylvester on the popular show – told the New York Daily News that she has not yet gathered the courage to find out how Ryan Murphy has decided to write Monteith out of the series following his death from a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol last month.
She told the newspaper that the script "is at home waiting to be read.
"Gosh, I have no idea how to do it," she added.
Lynch has also revealed that she is glad that she is not responsible for giving Monteith – who played Finn Hudson – the send-off he deserves..
She added: "I am glad it is not my call, because not only are we saying goodbye to him, but the audience is saying goodbye to him, too, not just Cory but to Finn.
"It's really sad. They have a big job ahead of them."
Murphy recently revealed that they were unlikely to have Finn die of a drug overdose, and instead wanted to focus on the character's life, and not his death.
Murphy explained: "There were a lot of things that we had to decide - how are we going to deal with his death? At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose - that was something we had considered.
"But we have decided that we're not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we're doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died.
"The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, 'This episode is about a celebration of that character's life.' That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way."
