Cory Monteith,31, who played Fox hit “Glee,” was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on Saturday, police said.
Police said the cause of death was not clear, but they ruled out foul play.
Medical examiners will conduct an autopsy on Monday.
Monteith’s body was discovered by staff members at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel after he missed his checkout time, acting Chief Constable Doug LePard told reporters.
Monteith apparently had several people over to his room at one point Friday night, but LePard said Monteith, who had checked in July 6, was seen on hotel supervision video returning to his room in the early morning hours by himself.

Adam Shankman, who directed an episode for each of the past three seasons, told that he had talked to Monteith on Saturday morning. The actor said he wanted to come down to California to Jet Ski.
Shankman said Monteith was the glue of “Glee.” He was always welcoming, whether it was to a guest director or a new cast member, Shankman said.
The actor knew all of his lines when filming began each time and would congratulate his fellow cast members when he thought they did well.
“He showed up every day and he was a delight,” Shankman said.
One of his classmates on “Glee,” Mark Salling, tweeted a simple “no” after police held their news conference.
