Glee star Matthew Morrison has opened up about the tragic passing of his co-star Naya Rivera who sadly passed away in a boating accident earlier on this year.

Matthew played the role of Mr Schuester (who ran the Glee Club) and Naya was one of his students. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Matthew spoke about Naya's untimely passing...

"Naya was a huge bright light," Morrison said. "I mean, she's someone who kind of kept us in stitches on set, like, she was always the one who is just so witty and just, like, always joking."

"On that show, it was difficult. We pulled long, long hours — like 16 to 18 hour days — and we needed that, that team morale, and she was always there to give us a good laugh."

"It's crazy saying 'was,'" he went on to say. "But she was a special person and my heart just goes out to that family who is grieving. I can't imagine, you know, having a son myself, the upbringing that that child is going to be exposed to because his mother is not there, you know? It's gotta be so tough, so my heart goes out to that family."

Naya definitely leaves behind a huge legacy and a load of loving friends, family and fans.
