Chris Colfer says his character on the
Fox musical-comedy Glee, Kurt Hummel, has yet to kiss
out-and-proud gay student Blaine, played by Darren Criss.
Kurt has been run out of McKinley High
by closeted football player Dave Karofsky, played by Max Adler. Kurt
fled the school after officials decided against disciplining the
bully, and towards the Dalton Academy, where he has joined Blaine.
Glee ringmaster Ryan Murphy has
promised romance this season for Colfer's gay character. On the
show's holiday special, the
pairing up of Kurt and Blaine in the holiday classic Baby It's
Cold Outside suggested more than friendship between the chorus
But Colfer told E!
Online that the pair have yet to smooch.
When asked, “Have you been kissing
any boys in private school uniforms lately?” Colfer answer: “Not
on the show, that's for sure! … Not yet. But it's really funny how
hungry people are for that. Calm down, perverts!”
He went on to suggest that perhaps
Kurt's romance will be found somewhere else.
“Maybe they're not going to kiss?
Maybe a nice hug will do for them. Maybe they're a higher-level
relationship; everything is spiritual. Who knows? But I think if we
rush it too much, everyone would say how much we rushed it and how
it wasn't real.”
