Jane Lynch is sharing her memories of Mark Salling after his January 30 suicide. She reflected on the actor, 35, while attending the Adopt the Arts Annual Rock Gala on January 31.
“It’s been tough. He was a troubled, troubled guy, and he always was,” Lynch, 57, said. “This is a very sad end to it, but I know that he’s at peace now. He’s in the arms of a beneficent force.”
Lynch and Salling both costarred in Glee from 2009-2015. The young actor ran into legal trouble soon after, recently pleading guilty to child pornography possession. Salling was facing jail time before his death.
“I know life was very, very hard for Mark. I think we all do the best we can at the end of the day. I know Mark that did the best he could,” Lynch said.
