Class of ’08: Clovis East High School in Clovis, Calif.
WHEN DID YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH KURT HAS RESONATED WITH FANS?
When the letters started coming in from kids who were thankful for my storyline. It’s like the first time on television that a conservative father was accepting of his gay son rather than kicking him out.
WERE YOU A HUGE BRITNEY SPEARS FAN GROWING UP?
Actually, this just shows how young I am, but she was a little before my time. I do love to listen to her songs when I’m on the treadmill.
HAS THERE BEEN A DOWNSIDE TO THE GLEE PANDEMONIUM?
It’s just amazing to be loved by so many people, but I’ve had some scary situations and some very aggressive fans. But it’s like, how can you get mad at someone for loving you?
