Interviewer:So since you’re in the gay storyline and playing a gay character, I have to ask about your sexuality.
Grant:That’s amazing. You’re the very first person that’s ever asked.
Interviewer:Well I’ve seen so many blog posts and other things where people are guessing or sharing rumors, so I felt I should just ask you.
Grant:Nobody has ever asked me. I am not gay in real life. I don’t know if I’m supposed to elaborate more on that.
Interviewer:Not at all. I just wanted to have it right from you. It’s kind of sad to have to ask, but people will just make it up if I don’t.
Grant:Well, people just kind of assume that I am for multiple reasons. I come from a musical theater background, and there’s kind of an assumption about that. And I’m playing a gay character, so people just kind of assume. … People have assumed my entire life. I don’t even think about it any more.
Interviewer:But you’re having fun playing gay on TV?
“It’s when you see the difference between myself and Kurt. Like, if someone had done what Sebastian is gonna do in my world? They’d come up missing. I wouldn’t be diplomatic like Kurt is. Kurt is way too diplomatic. I’d go get my shovel out of the backseat of my car and I’d take care of business, Clovis-style. No messing around.”—Chris Colfer (source)
