Glee actor Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel in the show has admitted that he was constantly "harassed" at school.
Speaking to Mr Porter, the star, whose character missed out on a place in coveted theatre school NYADA, admitted:
"I was harassed at school every day, called ‘f****t’, I had things taped to my back. For most of my adolescence I was in my bedroom writing or watching things I shouldn’t be watching on TV, like Nip/Tuck.
“And I was obsessed with superheroes. I had this thing where I wanted to be rescued. The other kids wanted to be Superman, but I thought Lois Lane kind of had the best deal.”
Well look who is laughing now!
The actor also revealed that his character was made for him after he failed to land the role of Artie (now played by Kevin McHale).
He added: "I was auditioning for the part of Artie, the kid in the wheelchair. And I didn't get it. Obviously. So that was it."
Revealing that the show's creator Ryan Murphy created Kurt after taking inspiration from his story, the actor added: "So they invented a character for me. They created Kurt specifically.
“There are two experiences in my life that I just cannot wrap my head around. That's one. And the Golden Globes was the other. I just cannot believe they happened. In the beginning I was telling my friends that I met the person who did the voice from Scooby-Doo. Then those stories turned into: ‘Meryl Streep kissed me on the cheek.’”
We couldn't imagine the show without Chris, could you?
