Twitter Informs Chris Colfer of His Glee Graduation


This must have been the look on Chris Colfer’s face when he learned that he will be (sorry for the blunt term) axed in Glee’s upcoming season from his Twitter account:


Nonetheless, the actor remains poised to face the music in his interview with Access Hollywood and handled it as gracefully as his Glee character Kurt Hummel would have done it. He had become more prominent as an actor because of the hit Fox series, having recently won a Golden Globe for his portrayal in the show. He was even considered by Time magazine as 2011’s list of 100 most influential people. All in all, it was not a bad year for Colfer and based on how things are going, it can only get better and better for him.

He did admit that he was not completely shocked at the announcement of their graduation in the next season: “Yeah, I found out that they made that announcement. I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year, I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can’t be there forever… I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon, but I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end…”

Aside from this realization, Colfer is continuously receiving support and gratitude from fans all over the world who were able to relate the most in the character he portrayed in Glee. He definitely gave homosexuality a new face and a new name, so to speak. His famous kissing scene with the character Blaine, played by Darren Kriss, was one of the most elegant male to male kissing scenes ever seen on TV. In fact, his own personal experiences as an open gay teenager in high school were incorporated in the show by Ryan Murphy. The character Kurt was tailor-fitted for Colfer and it proved to be one of the strong points that made the show such a hit among the viewers all over the world.

Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining to the Glee exit since Colfer just got nominated in the Emmy’s for best actor in a comedy. It is quite a pleasant surprise and balancing act for the sadness he is feeling for having to graduate on Glee with other co-stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith. His career looks very, very promising, given the following, influence, and talent that he has shown in the musical series. It is even possible, as rumors are already circulation, that there may even be a spinoff from his Glee character to be turned into a separate show.

Aside from the TV activities, Colfer also recently signed a project that involves writing two novels for children. Way to go, indeed!
