Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera
and Heather Morris talk about what fans can expect from their Glee
gay characters next season.
Criss plays out-and-proud Blaine
Anderson on the Fox musical-comedy, while Colfer plays gay William
McKinley High student Kurt Hummel. The pair declared their love for
each other after a brief romance during the show's second season.
Rivera plays closeted lesbian Santana
Lopez. In the episode titled Sexy, Santana confessed to
Brittany, played by Heather Morris, that she loves her. Brittany
declared her love in return but added that she was taken. By the end
of the season, however, Brittany was once again single, and romance
for the pair in the upcoming season remains a possibility.
The four stars talked about what fans
can expect from their Glee characters and how fans have
reacted to their coming out stories during a recent press tour for
Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, gay
entertainment website AfterElton.com reported.
“I'd like to see her be pretty mean
this year,” Rivera said of her character. “Like real mean. And
maybe get a girlfriend.”
“I'd like to see her get a
girlfriend, for sure,” Morris said. “Like a hot girlfriend.”
“With boobs,” Rivera added.
“It's crazy when you represent such a
select community, just the stories that you hear that are
heartbreaking and inspiring, and they always thank you so much, not
realizing that it's really them who are brave and are the strong
ones,” Colfer said.
Criss said the positive response he's
received has made his role more meaningful: “They are much greater
than they think they are, because it comes right back to us, and that
goes into every performance. It's not just a job anymore. It's like
I've been given this superhero's costume and I get to play him, and
it's a privilege.”
