“Glee” star Chris Colfer talks to Entertainment Weekly about the letters he gets from young gay fans, I posted a portion of Chris Colfer’s interview with Entertainment Weekly in which he talked about his personal experiences being bullied while he was in high school and how he handled it.

His character of Kurt Hummel was stood up to his bully in this week’s episode of the show called Never Been Kissed. The bully (played by Max Adler) ends up kissing Kurt in the end.

The EW article notes that Kurt has unequivocally become the heart of the series and, amid a recent flare-up in gay teen bullying and suicides across the country, one of the most socially important characters on television.

Says Colfer: “With all due respect to my castmates, they don’t get the letters like I get – the letters that not only say ‘I’m your biggest fan,’ but also, ‘Kurt saved my life.’ and ‘Kurt doesn’t make me feel alone’ from 7 year olds in Nebraska. When I was growing up, there wasn’t a character like this. I think what makes Kurt so special is he’s finding himself in front of our eyes.”

4 Remarks

  1. God Bless you Chris! You already are a National Treasure in my book.

  2. Chris is an amazing talent. Kurt’s storyline is the most compelling aspect of “Glee”.
