Chris Colfer, the actor who plays teenager Kurt Hummel in the award winning show ‘Glee,’ is set to leave at the end of the third season. Kurt will make his exit with Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Finn Hudson (Cory Montieth) as the three graduate McKinley High.
Regarding the news Michele earlier tweeted “We always knew we’d graduate in real time. It’s all part of the plan and it’s all good! It’s going to make season 3 amazing!!!”
However it has emerged Chris Colfer isn’t quite as eager to move on. The multi-talented star seems a tad unnerved at the prospect, unsurprising given that he allegedly found out via Twitter.
Speaking to Access Hollywood the twenty-one year old revealed, “I didn’t necessarily know it was going to be our last season. I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can’t be there forever.”
“I understand that there’s time for a conclusion. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end.”
Fortunately Chris’ exit from ‘Glee’ does not signal the end of his Hollywood career. Evidently the star is set for bigger and better things.
Colfer has both scripted and is set to star in coming-of-age movie ‘Struck by Lightning.’ ‘Mad Men’ actress Christina Hendricks has recently joined the cast, alongside Allison Janney (‘The West Wing’) and Sarah Hyland (‘Modern Family’).
Further accentuating his talents Colfer received an Emmy nomination in the ‘Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series’ category for a second year running. An unassuming Colfer told Entertainment Weekly, “It was a surprise…The category is so so tough, so selective, that I didn’t think I would get another nomination.”
