‘Glee’ Star Chris Colfer Talks Losing His V-Card On-Screen
It's the episode that has everyone talking: On Tuesday night's upcoming ep of 'Glee,' Kurt and Blaine (played by Chris Colfer and Darren Criss, respectively) will be taking a big step in their relationship and doing it. As in, having S-E-X. (Sorry -- we're squeamish.)
Of course, we had every expectation that the storyline will be handled with the same tact that's always been given to Kurt's sexuality on the show — and according to Colfer's new interview with E!, it sounds like that's the case.
"I always freak out and panic about storylines that they tell me are coming up because I always think it's going to be raunchy and over-the-top," Colfer said, "but those situations are always handled so well and sensitively and emotionally, and this was no exception."
Given how Colfer has emerged as an important advocate for the gay community, due to his character's experiences and his own transparency about his real-life orientation, he says that it was key that the sequence was done in the right way. This way, it will send a positive message out to the world.
"I really just hope it kind of sets the standard for gay kids," he explained. "I don't mean to upset anyone by saying this, but it is just kind of a known fact that a lot of gay kids are very promiscuous and non-exclusive with each other when they have relationships, which is really sad. But I think with Kurt and Blaine, I would hope would set an example of what something should be and could be." Aww!
We can't wait to see how the whole thing plays out! You can catch the episode, appropriately titled 'The First Time,' on Nov. 8 at 8PM EST on FOX.
