Chris Colfer struggled to find the time to write his first book, “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell.” Most of his days and nights were spent working on the FOX series, “Glee.”
He had a lot more time to work on his latest book, “The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms” as the final season of “Glee” wrapped up in March.
Generally, actors working on major projects have some free time as they wait for the crew to prepare for the next scene. “Glee” was different. The actors had to juggle the regular demands of acting with work on choreography and recording music. Toss in constant attention from the media and a tour and free time was a premium.
“ ‘Glee’ was a tough show to do. It will be regarded as having the hardest working cast in television. It was a miracle what we accomplished compared to industry standards,” Colfer says in an interview four months after the series finale. He was hesitant to talk to the press right after the show went off the air.
The Clovis East graduate was on the network series about a spunky high school glee club for seven years and became one of the the biggest break-out members of the cast. He won a Golden Globe in 2011 and was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards. Colfer won three People’s Choice Awards as Favorite Comedic TV Actor.
