Glee News: Chris Colfer didn’t know he was leaving

We always thinks it’s kind of rude for TV bosses to tell newspapers about stars being let go, before informing the talent.

It seems that Glee showrunner Ryan Murphy is one of those people who we love to hate, because Chris Colfer has revealed that he wasn’t informed he was leaving the show, before the public announcement was made.

It was revealed earlier this week that Chris – who plays Kurt on the hit Fox musical show – along with Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cory Monteith (Finn) would not be included in the fourth season of the show, because they would be graduating from McKinley High.

Colfer admitted that the news was a surprise to him, when he told Access Hollywood:

He told Access Hollywood: “Yeah, I found out that they made that announcement.

“I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season. I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can’t be there forever.

“Do I want to leave the show? Absolutely not. This is home for me. But I understand that there’s time for a conclusion. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end.”

However there is a silver lining for Colfer. He recently found out that he had been nominated for an Emmy as best actor in a comedy series.

Speaking about the honour, he added:

“As a performer, I feel so fulfilled.

“It’s just a huge category. It’s best actor in a comedy, and we all know that Kurt’s not funny, so I’m very, very happy to be a part of it.”

It has been rumoured that Rachel, Kurt and Finn will all move to New York after High School and the actors will all be awarded their own spinoff show. However no official comment on this has been made to date.
