‘Glee’ fans embrace Chris Colfer’s character
HollywoodNews.com: “It’s the first time in the history of television that a father like that has accepted his son for who he is.”
So beams Chris Colfer of “Glee” who told fans at Comic-Con that he receives many warm responses from his fans about his gay character, Kurt Hummel, and the relationship he has with his father.
“Every day I get thousands of emails and Facebook messages saying how much it affected them, and they’re so happy that relationship is now on television,” said the actor.
Digital Spy overheard the quotes.
Also, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy defended Kurt’s romantic behavior toward Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith), a plot line that was played out during last season.
“I don’t look at that as creepy behaviour,” said Murphy, “I look it as a character who is in search of love and makes mistakes, as we all do, but yeah, we are going to revisit that early on in the season.
“I’ve always thought of the Kurt, Mike O’Malley, Finn triangle as men talking about their issues. We will be doing that.”
