The show that made him famous has ended, but Chris Colfer has successfully moved on.

Millions of fans know him from his portrayal of Kurt Hummel on the TV series “Glee” — a role for which he earned a Golden Globe Award and two Emmy nominations.

By the time “Glee” concluded its six-year run in March 2015, though, Colfer had written and directed a film, and published a book series that landed him on the New York Times best-seller list.

The “Land of Stories” series, designed for ages 8 to 12, is based on his childhood obsession with fairy tales.

The fifth book, “An Author’s Odyssey,” was released Tuesday.

Colfer, 26, spoke ahead of an appearance tonight at Bexley High School.

Q: Do you enjoy book tours?

A: They can be very grueling, but I genuinely enjoy it. There is absolutely nothing like having a 6-year-old talk to you about your characters as if they are real people.

And they always shower me with artwork and drawings. I’m such a hoarder; I have a room in my house filled with binders of artwork. My assistant is frustrated with me that I keep it all, but it warms my heart.

Q: What do you do at your appearances?

A: This summer, I’m doing things a bit differently. Rather than have a long book-signing line, I’m going to read a little bit from the book, do some trivia and have a costume contest because I love costumes. And then we’re doing a raffle, where five ticket holders can come backstage for a meet-and-greet. (Everyone with a ticket receives a signed copy of the book.)

Q: You have said that fairy tales and fantasy in general helped you face difficult situations as a child. Do you think youngsters need an escape?

A: I think escapism is so underrated, especially with the state of the world right now. Escapism is one of the greatest things we can give kids. Who wouldn’t want to turn off the news and go into a fairy tale every now and then?

Q: You’ve said you think you were born to be a storyteller. How did you know?

A: I’m not sure I had a choice. A lot of writers would probably agree with me: We don’t really choose to spend hours and hours alone at a computer. It’s something in our soul that makes us do it.

Q: Did the end of “Glee” prove to be positive or negative for you?

A: Both. I’m much tanner now because I’m not in a soundstage all day. I’ve been able to see my friends and family, and play with my dog.

But there are little things I miss that people don’t really think about: gossiping with the hair and makeup ladies. And I miss “Taco Tuesday” with the Teamsters — those little things.
