Matthew Morrison has admitted that he often struggles to learn his Glee scripts, because the filming schedule is so tough.
The 32 year old actor says he can cope with the long hours, the late nights and the early morning camera calls, however he is having trouble finding time to learn his lines.
Speaking in an interview for BBC Radio 1, Matthew explained:
“We start, like, at 6.30am on Monday but you have to have a 12-hour turn around after every day, so progressively every week our call time gets later every day, and by Fridays our call is at noon and we’re done at 4.00am or something like that.
“Usually if I’m on a little break, that’s when I learn my lines. There’s been a few times when I’ve had sheet music or something on set and I’ve scribbled down some lines on that.”
Matthew also revealed he finds it “exciting but also scary” when he thinks about how long the phenomenally successful show could run for, and how many series he could star in.
He added: “It’s a 10-year high school, so the kids are going to be there for 10 years. They have to graduate, obviously, at some point. I think that I could possibly be there for a long time which is exciting but also scary.”
During his time away from ‘Glee’, Matthew has found the time to record an album – which includes a duet with Sir Elton John and a collaboration with Gwyneth Paltrow.
The 32-year-old heartthrob will be hitting the road to promote the LP and is very excited to finally be releasing his songs.
Speaking about the album – which is due to be released in May – he told British TV host Lorraine Kelly: “I’ve been sitting on this material for a while. I recorded a lot of it during the first hiatus from ‘Glee’ about a year ago, but it’s been a slow process. Now that ‘Glee’ has started back up again, I’ve been doing all my recordings on every single weekend, so I’m actually dying to go to sleep.”
