Chris Colfer’s Struck by Lightning in the Champs-Elysées Film Festival 2013 ’s website
There was another topic of interest to me, one that I knew she could discuss. [Christina] Hendricks was in the film “Struck By Lightning,” which was written by Clovis East graduate Chris Colfer.
When I ask about Colfer, Hendricks flashes a smile and said: “He is such a wonderful and talented young man. I really enjoyed working with him.”
Chris Colfer is not a man who wastes time resting on his laurels. In the past four years, we’ve seen him sing and dance on Glee, win a Golden Globe® and two Teen Choice Awards, and become a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author thanks to his young adult novel, The Land of Stories.
And that’s not all. Colfer also managed to find the time to write a screenplay and star in the resulting film: Struck By Lightning.
Directed by Brian Dannelly (Saved!), Struck By Lightning stars Colfer, Allison Janney, Rebel Wilson, Sarah Hyland, Dermot Mulroney, Christina Hendricks, and Polly Bergen, with supporting performances by Allie Grant, Ashley Rickards, Carter Jenkins, Graham Rogers, Matt Prokop, Robbie Amell, Roberto Aguire, Angela Kinsey, and Brad William Henke.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Chris Colfer about writing Struck By Lightning and the experience of bringing his words to life on the silver screen.
