Chris Colfer woke up today to contrasting news: he's an Emmy nominee... and he's on his way out of the show that earned him that title.
Expressing shock over the latter, the young star spoke to TV Line about the latter development and said the following of Ryan Murphy's decision to graduate those who will be playing seniors on season three of Glee:
"It’s definitely not my choice. But I completely understand that it works for the integrity of the show. One of the things that I love about Glee is, despite characters breaking into song in the middle of the hallway, it was very real to me. It always seemed like a very real high school environment. And I think by having some characters graduate, they’ll continue having that element."
Michele, meanwhile, has also Tweeted a response to the news. A force on Broadway before she arrived on Fox, the actress will have plenty of opportunities ahead and wrote:
“We always knew we’d graduate in real time. It’s all part of the plan and it’s all good! It’s going to make Season 3 amazing!!! To Gleeks everywhere, you’re in my heart now and forever. Love u all!!! This is just the beginning!!”
Will you keep watching Glee after Michele, Colfer and Cory Monteith leave?
