Lea Michele is slowly moving forward from Cory Monteith's death.

The 'Glee' actress, who was left devastated when her co-star and boyfriend of one year was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada, in July from a heroin and alcohol overdose, has started going out with her friends again and may soon be ready to date again.

A source told Us Weekly magazine that the 27-year-old actress was overheard talking with friends about a cute guy at a recent party in Hollywood.

The insider added: "She was excited he was coming."

But another friend close to the brunette beauty insisted she is still heartbroken about Cory's death.

The source said: "She talks about Cory constantly. She tries to remember the good times."

Lea recently filmed a tribute episode of 'Glee' to the late actor, who played Finn Hudson on the show, which is due to air in the U.S. tomorrow night (10.10.13) and will feature a number of cameos from former stars.

Actress Jayma Mays, 34, who made her name playing obsessive guidance counsellor Emma Pillsbury on the smash show, admitted filming the episode was very difficult for the entire cast.

She told Yahoo TV: "It's honestly been one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do and I hope I never have to do something like it again.

"It was nice being there with the cast and crew who are like family to me, but we were very aware that we were missing a friend. We've pulled together like anyone who has lost someone and been in that very difficult position. It was very strange filming around it."
