For Jane Lynch, coping with the loss of Glee costar Cory Monteith is an ongoing struggle.
"I think that grieving comes in waves," she told PEOPLE at the Ciroq-sponsored Variety & Women in Film pre-Emmy event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday. "Every day that I go to work, I walk past his trailer, and every time I look at a call sheet I see that his name is not on there. Every time I do a scene with the kids I realize that he's not there, so you're reminded in every moment. It's hard, and it feels like such a waste."
But while Lynch admits "it's tough" as she and her castmates continue to mourn the 31-year-old – who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol this past July – her heart goes out to his girlfriend and costar, Lea Michele.

The cast of Glee said a final goodbye to Cory Monteith, who died in July, through his character, Finn Hudson, in a tribute episode they filmed recently that costar Jane Lynch says is "really beautiful."
"It was hard, and it was beautifully written," Lynch, 53, told PEOPLE at the FOX Fall Eco-Casino party Monday. "We grieved together, and it was so important for the crew to grieve as well, so we kind of all grieved as a big family."
"It was really hard to do, but it was a really beautiful episode."

Jane Lynch's estranged wife Lara Embry is asking for attorney fees to be paid for by the Glee star, along with spousal support.
Lynch, 53, who has been separated from Embry since February, had sought in divorce papers to terminate the court's jurisdiction to award spousal support to her ex. Embry's requests came in her response filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Lynch said in July that their breakiup is "not dramatic," adding, "It's not a horrible thing. … It's two people who just decide it's better to go apart than stay together."

Glee star Jane Lynch and her wife, Dr. Lara Embry, are getting a divorce, the actress tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter," Lynch says in a statement.
Lynch, 52, and Embry, 44, met at a 2009 fundraiser in San Francisco at which Embry was being honored. Shortly after confirming their engagement, the women married on Memorial Day in 2010 in an intimate ceremony in Sunderland, Mass., one of the few states where gay marriage is recognized.

It's not every house – or couple – that can welcome Reese Witherspoon, Jane Lynch and Julie Roberts to dinner all on the same night, but Glee, American Horror Story and The New Normal creator Ryan Murphy and his husband, photographer David Miller, did just that, when in June they hosted the $40,000-a-plate dinner for President Obama.
Of course, besides great connections, it also helps to have a $10 million showplace to call home, which the couple – who wed last 4th of July – also have, as seen in The Hollywood Reporter's first-ever Home Issue.
Located near the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Spanish Colonial residence was first built in 1927 and last owned by Diane Keaton. Murphy bought it in 2010 and worked with designer Cliff Fong to add several colorful touches – including quirky antiques and figurines with sombreros circling a courtyard water fountain.
