Chris Colfer Sorta Invented Kurt's Role on 'Glee'
At Chris' second audition, the show's creator Ryan Murphy said to him, "Why do I have a feeling you've been in The Sound of Music?" Ryan was spot on – Chris told him that when he was 14, he played Kurt.
"They definitely got a Von Trapp vibe from me," the actor who just celebrated his 20th birthday on May 27, jokes.
The wheels must have been turning in Ryan's mind because Chris continues, "Later I got a call from my agent that they were writing a new role that they wanted me to audition for instead. And I find out that this new role is called Kurt."
"They didn't tell me it was written for me until after I was cast, which I really wish they had told me before because I would have saved so many emotions and nerves," the California native dishes.
