While some of his Glee castmates returned to work today, Chris Colfer won’t be joining them until later this week. The actor is currently in New York City promoting the release of the second novel in his The Land of Stories series, The Enchantress Returns. Colfer stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio/SiriusXM 105 this morning to speak with EW‘s Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw about the book and returning to Glee after the loss of costar and friend Cory Monteith.
Asked whether reuniting with his TV family will be cathartic, difficult, or both, Colfer said he honestly doesn’t know. “We’ve had bumps and dips along the road over the course of the years, but nothing like this. I know we’ve always come together — always — in the past, because we are such a family in the cast and the crew. But I don’t know. I’m assuming things will be very different, and I’m sure they’ll be difficult at first. But…. We’ll see. I think I’m positive.” Listen to that portion of the interview below.
