"It's still really sad but it was beautiful. (It was) nice to all be together again." Jane Lynch on reuniting with her Glee castmates to remember tragic actor Cory Monteith on Thursday (25Jul13). The star died on 13 July (13) after a drink and drugs binge.
Beloved British author Jane Austen is to feature on the new English £10 note. The woman behind literary classic Pride and Prejudice will replace naturalist Charles Darwin.
The new look note is likely to hit the financial market in 2017, according to Bank of England bosses.
New governor Mark Carney says, "Jane Austen certainly merits a place in the select group of historical figures to appear on our banknotes. Her novels have an enduring and universal appeal and she is recognised as one of the greatest writers in English literature."
Jane Lynch reunited with her estranged wife Lara Embry for lunch on Monday (22Jul13), just over a week after the Glee star filed for divorce to end their three-year marriage. The actress recently insisted the former couple would remain friends for the sake of her ex's young daughter, Haden.
"I think they will call her Mary Elizabeth if girl and George if its boy... Imagine if they call it Tiesto... Actually I think it will be called Orlando, or Otis or Ava or Jane." Singer Lily Rose Cooper offers up ideas for the new royal baby's name before the official announcement of the boy's birth on Monday (22Jul13). A name has yet to be revealed.
Glee star Jane Lynch is set to be honoured for her philanthropy work in Los Angeles next month (Aug13). The actress will receive the Marianne Williamson Founder's Award at the Angel Awards, organised by bosses at Project Angel Food, which provides sick people with nutritious meals.
Lynch says, "I couldn't be more thrilled to be receiving this honour from the angels at Project Angel Food who are really doing God's work."
American TV personality and chef Giada De Laurentiis will be handed the inaugural Iconic Chef Award at the gala, which is set to take place on 10 August (13).
Gleeks across the world are mourning the recent loss of Cory Monteith. Glee's shinning star died from a lethal mix of alcohol and heroin last weekend. Jane Lynch, who worked alongside Monteith on the hit Fox show since its 2009 premiere, remembered him Wednesday night while on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
After Leno commended Lynch for still showing up despite the passing of her co-star and friend, Lynch held back tears as she fondly remembered Monteith. The Annie actress praised Monteith's inspiring spirit, saying, "He was one of those guys that, you know, he knew he was breathing rarified air. The gifts… this wonderful show gave us. And he was one of those guys aware that it was a gift."
Although Monteith's life was cut short at the young age of 31, Lynch disclosed, "I don't think he left one day unloved." And then went on to say, "We've lost a really great guy."
Ever since Monteith first appeared on the musical comedy as an underdog who grappled with balancing football with glee club, fans were enchanted by the extremely talented actor. Jane Lynch, who plays the malicious Sue Sylvester on Glee, reveals that Monteith was an inspiration off the screen as well. Lynch shared how Monteith once flew across the country with his own money to visit a sick child whose last wish was to meet him. "He was just a real giver," Lynch adds.

Actress Jane Lynch fought back tears as she paid tribute to her tragic Glee co-star Cory Monteith during a U.S. TV interview on Wednesday (17Jul13). The 31-year-old's body was found in his hotel room in Canada on 13 July (13), less than three months after he completed a stint in rehab, and an autopsy has confirmed the star died after taking a deadly mix of heroin and alcohol.
Lynch, who plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the TV musical, has been hit hard by the tragedy and she became emotional as she shared her memories of Monteith on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, branding him a "really great guy".
With her voice breaking, Lynch told the host, "Cory's one of the biggest hearts, was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that... you know, he knew he was breathing rarefied air... the gifts that this wonderful show gave us.
"He was always aware that it was a gift and he was quite generous. He was one of those adventurous types... I always admired how he would get up... you know, he would fly to Mexico, he'd throw parties for his friends. I don't think he left one day unlived. He was a real bright light in our family and we've lost a really great guy."
When asked how she hopes Monteith will be remembered, Lynch added, "He once flew across the country on his own nickel to meet with a sick kid whose last wish was to meet him. That's the kind of guy he was. Just a real giver."
Monteith's remains were reportedly cremated on Tuesday (16Jul13) and his mother, brother and actress girlfriend Lea Michele said their farewells during a private ceremony.
Bryan Cranston was surrounded by his Breaking Bad and Malcolm In The Middle co-stars on Tuesday (16Jul13) as he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Emmy-award winning actor joined the celebrity A-list when he was presented with the 2,502nd star on the famous Los Angeles sidewalk, and his friends and family turned out to help him celebrate.
Cranston was joined by his wife Robin Dearden and daughter Taylor, as well as his TV families from past and present.
His former onscreen wife and son from Malcom In The Middle, Jane Kaczmarek and Frankie Muniz, were both there to cheer him on, along with his Breaking Bad TV family RJ Mitte and Anna Gunn.
Cranston's onscreen partner-in-crime Aaron Paul took to the stage to pay tribute to his Breaking Bad co-star, telling the crowd, "Breaking Bad would not be the same without this man. Let's be honest, television would not be the same without this man. But I'm here to tell you all that I, personally, would not be the same without this man."
Kaczmarek, who played his onscreen wife Lois on Malcolm in the Middle for six years, added, "We would count our lucky stars that Bryan Cranston was in our cast, that he was in our show, that Bryan Cranston was our friend."
The 57-year-old actor, who has also starred in The Lincoln Lawyer and Argo, also put in a performance at the ceremony, completing a number of press-ups on his plaque and singing a few lines from My Fair Lady tune On The Street Where You Live.
After the ceremony, Cranston took to Twitter to thank his friends, writing, "Today I got (a) star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Overwhelming. It's like walking in on a surprise party thrown just for you! My thanks to all."
"I don't abide by the C-word (celebrity). I think that people are interested in you if you give them something to be interested in. I don't give them anything to talk about-I lead a boring life."

Glee star Jane Lynch is determined to keep her divorce from Lara Embry amicable for the sake of her young stepdaughter. The actress split from Embry in February (13) and moved to end their three-year marriage by filing divorce papers earlier this month (Jul13), but she is adamant they will stay friends for the sake of Embry's daughter, Haden.
The actress adds, "It's not dramatic. It's not a horrible thing. It's something that we're dealing with. It's two people who just decided it's better to go apart (sic) than stay together.
"All's good. We have a little girl - she has a little girl who's very dear to me. She's 10, and she's doing great. It is (horrible). It is. We have to remain adults, which we have. We keep everybody's - especially Haden's - good in our mind."
The couple married in 2010.
