Adam Lambert has finally joined the cast of ‘Glee’ and fans of both the singer and the show got to see him perform a special rendition of Lady Gaga’s ‘Marry The Night’ as his character Elliott ‘Starchild’ Gilbert made his debut.
However as with all special guest appearances nothing is set in stone or made clear as to how long a guest star will appear on the show, after all for many it’s just a one off thing and then they return to their daily business.
Adam Lambert however has confirmed in a TV interview with UK breakfast show ‘Daybreak’ that he will appear on ‘Glee’ for more than one episode as Elliott Gilbert.
The singer also commented on how good it felt getting into the role of another character as fans of the star will be aware that Adam has appeared (as himself) on shows such as Pretty Little Liars and Project Runway.
Speaking to Ross King on ITV’s ‘Daybreak’ though – which was aired on Thursday and can be seen at the bottom of the page, Adam confirmed his future on ‘Glee’:
“It’s more than one episode for sure,” Adam said. “I don’t actually know how many and we’re still in the process of filming.”
‘Glee’ for Adam Lambert also marks the first time the star has actually been an actor and portrayed someone else and he added:
“This is kind of going back to the acting roots a little bit,” Adam said. “It feels good.”
Fans may or may not know this but back in 2009 Adam also tried out musical theater and was also rejected once by a casting director on ‘Glee’ who believed he was a little too old to be on the show:
“It’s funny because I actually auditioned for the show years ago before it started, before I was on Idol,” the singer revealed.
“The casting director was like, ‘Wow, I love your voice, but I think you’re too old to be on the show,'” he said. “So I didn’t get it.”
