Dianna Agron was snubbed from Cory Monteith's Glee tribute episode because she was 'intensely disliked by Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy'

After starring in the show for four seasons, it must have come as quite the snub.

Glee's Dianna Agron has been excluded from Cory Monteith's tribute episode amid rumours that she was 'intensely disliked' by certain cast and crew members.

Dianna played Quinn Fabray, who was dating Cory's character Finn, for four seasons but was not asked to come back for the tribute episode - or any of the fifth season.

The 27-year-old recently admitted she was shocked at the snub, which is rumoured to be because of Cory's real life girlfriend, Lea Michele, and the show's co-creator, Ryan Murphy.


A well-placed source allegedly told RadarOnline: "[Ryan and Lea] intensely dislike Dianna and have both worked to marginalize her as much as possible ... [they] never saw her as a team player, [they] simply did not want her sharing the glory for this very special episode.

"It’s shocking, because even though she’s not contracted for this season, many other actors returned to pay tribute to Cory... even ones with less of a story connection to Finn than Dianna had!"

Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith's characters were dating in Glee, so her absence has sent chins wagging.


After admitting she was shocked at not being invited back, Dianna says she would have stayed if it were down to her.

She admitted: "I think moving on might be the wrong choice of words because [Glee] is always going to be a part of me and with me, and I would always go back."

Dianna's absence from the tribute episode has already set chins wagging, with Gleeks blogging about the snub across the board.

One fan wrote: "Dianna played Finn's love interest! She and Cory were linked so closely that it would seem odd not to have her show up to any sort of celebration of his life."

The actress attended a concert dedicated to Cory shortly after his death and has spoken openly at her sadness at his loss, making it even stranger that she wasn't involved in filming.

Cory, 31, died tragically in July after taking an accidental overdose of heroin and alcohol just months after leaving rehab for the addiction.

His tribute episode, The Quarterback, is due to air this Thursday.

We are awaiting comments from both Ryan Murphy and Dianna Agron's spokespeople.
