‘Glee’ Star Chris Colfer Talks Kurt’s Deep Crush On Finn: ‘It’s Not Going Away Anytime Soon’

“Kurt goes through a Meryl-Streep-movie-of -motions in such a short amount of time,” that’s how Chris Colfer described what’s in store for his character over the next few weeks on “Glee,” starting with tonight’s rather emotional episode. In it, we find Kurt attempting to bring he and Finn (Cory Monteith) together, but things (as usual) don’t go as planned.

“There’s really not much closure for Kurt in (the) episode,” Chris told Hollywood Crush, “I think it’s kind of a, ’Be careful what you wish for’ message. Even though I think Kurt was brilliant for doing what he did — almost like an evil genius putting that plan together — but the result was not what he wanted.”

But, a plan gone awry (not to give too much away, but both boys parents are involved, a storyline that Chris confirms, “definitely continues”) isn’t enough to deter Kurt. Chris explains, “I think it makes their relationship that much more complicated. Kurt’s crush on Finn is a very, very deep one, and it’s not going away anytime soon. It’s going to take more than his diabolical scheme backfiring up on him to stop his love for Finn.”

Another emotional hurdle Kurt (and Finn, for that matter) must face in tonight’s episode, is continuing to deal with the loss of a parent at a critical time in life. “I’m very fortunate, I still have both my parents,” Chris acknowledges. “I would imagine that losing your mother at such a young age will always affect you. Friends that I have that have gone through that experience, it still is very hard for them to digest. I think that will be an element with every relationship or emotion that Kurt goes through.”

Do you cheer on Kurt’s crush for Finn even though you know it’s not realistic? Are you cringing a little bit at the thought of their parents getting involved in the drama?
