Chris Colfer, who plays gay student
Kurt Hummel on Glee, has said fans are disappointed to find
out he's just playing a character.
In the Monday, April 9 episode of
cabler Bravo's Emmy-nominated series Inside the Actor's Studio,
host James Lipton talks to the cast of Glee.
In a clip from the show, Colfer talks
about letting down his fans.
When Lipton asked Colfer to describe
his character, Colfer answered: “What I think I love about Kurt the
most is that he is himself despite having his world constantly tell
him he should not be who he is. And it takes a lot of strength to be
who is he and to wear those tight pants.”
“He's very, very different from me
and I think that really disappoints a lot of people.”
“I can't tell you how many times I've
met people like on the street and after like a minute of talking with
them they realize he's not real.”
“You mean Kurt isn't?” Lipton
“Kurt, yeah,” he answered, then
joked with a wave of his hand: “Oh, I'm fake, too.” (The video
