"The most important thing I would say, with all seriousness, is to please remember that this is just a television show and Darren [Criss] and I are actors. My Twitter feed is full of angry people saying they’ve been emotionally distraught for weeks and they’re going to harm themselves if they break up. I know these are mostly exaggerations, but it’s still concerning. A TV show is never worth any of that."

"Whatever makes the girls on the internet happy, because the angry tweets I get sometimes scare the hell out of me."
— Chris Colfer, on Kurt and Blaine’s future (via blaineforpresident)
"My bottom line is that I want Kurt to be happy. He was not very happy last season. So whatever that entails, if they break up, stay together, attempt a long distance relationship, I’m on board. I just want to see Kurt happy for a change."
"I think I just want to leave my mark in some way. I hope I leave the world a better place than it was when I came, and I think the best way I can do that is through acting and writing, and hopefully it will make a difference someday."

"When production wrapped on Struck By Lightning, I wasn’t ready to say good-bye to these characters and was thrilled when Little, Brown asked me to adapt the story into a novel. I felt the best way to tell Carson’s story was through his critical eyes in a journal he kept the last months of his life. So this is a story about adolescence, told through the eyes of a teenager, for other teenagers."

"No one’s going to hand you things. To be completely frank, if you’re someone like me, and you’re a really specific, niche type of person, you really have to make opportunities yourself. You don’t have to be a genius to think that. When I look back at my childhood heroes, I realize there was no one who was me in a nutshell. There wasn’t one person I wanted to be. I wanted to be Tina Fey slash Woody Allen slash Mickey Mouse. So, I had to be a template for myself."
— Chris Colfer, “Do you think an actor has to write his own projects to get ahead in Hollywood these days?” (via staceysthings)
"I have my frustrations with it like any writer would. But, it’s not my call, it’s someone else’s network, it’s someone else’s vision. I was just excited to be working for the Mouse. It was cool to have a badge that said I was a Disney employee. But it was almost like a writing class. One day they would say, “We want you to change the pilot from 12- year-olds to 15-year-olds,” and in the next draft, two weeks later, they’d say, “Now we want it to be drama.” It’s very different when you’re working on a book, because the only person I really had to please was myself."

"This is my twelfth and last book signing, and I still get nervous every time I go out there because there’s always a chance that I could disappoint somebody and I don’t want to do that. My heart pounds every single time I’m about to walk down and meet everybody and I’m so sad that it’s over."

"When I was 18, the show first started. I kinda had really a choice, to…you know…deny what I think was pretty much obvious or to be honest. And I’m glad I did because it seems to have helped a lot of people."
"I think sometimes not so great things are praised, and I always feel like someday we’re going to get over that. We’re going to stop putting people on a pedestal that shouldn’t be."
