Personal Quote:

On getting slushied on Glee (2009): It felt like I was bitch-slapped by an iceberg. See more »

Trivia:

Originally auditioned for the role of "Artie" on Glee (2009), but did not get it. The casting agents were so impressed with his audition that they wrote the role of "Kurt" for him. They named the character "Kurt Hummel", due to Colfer's past role of "Kurt" in "The Sound of Music", when he was fourteen, and because of his rosy cheeks, which reminded them of "Hummel" figurines.
