Kurt and Blaine’s First Kiss: Grant Gustin on Why It “Needed” to Happen!
His character may have garnered mixed reviews when he debuted on Glee as troublesome Warbler Sebastian earlier this season, but guest-star Grant Gustin is busy securing a place in our hearts with some serious love for the show that gave him his breakout role!
At last week’s GLAAD Awards, Grant talked to Zap2it about his respect for the show, calling it “a revelation for this generation” and picked out one particular moment as a highlight. Can you guess the one???
Grant said of the landmark liplock, “Seeing that kiss between a very young Darren Criss [Blaine] and Chris Colfer [Kurt] was a big statement to make and a statement that needed to be made. And it was done in a very realistic, fair way. No slander. No stigmas placed on it. It makes it real for kids. The show and the characters are so important to them.”
Well put, Mr. Gustin! We couldn’t agree more (and that’s why we we’re so vehemently opposed your characters… interference! No hard feelings?).
