Chris Colfer and Darren Criss talk about playing gay teens on “Glee”

HollywoodNews.com: AfterElton.com has coverage of the premiere of the concert feature film Glee: The 3D Concert Movie which hits theaters on Friday.

The site includes brief interviews with Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Heather Morris and Naya Rivera who play gay or lesbian or questioning teens. Here is an excerpt:

The film breaks up the cast’s concert footage with featurettes on three unique teenage Glee fans, including Trenton, a gay teen who came out in the eighth grade after having his journal stolen and hand-delivered to his secret crush. Trenton discusses how much of a positive influence Colfer’s character has been on his life. “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 says.

Criss agrees, adding that the response from gay fans has made him take his character more seriously. “They are much greater than they think they are, because it comes right back to us, and that goes into every performance,” he says. “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.”
