Now to start with, I think you would be interested to know how he got engaged in acting on the first place. Chris had a very stressful childhood and teenage years. You might think that every one of us goes through some troubles in this early period of life, but believe me, his situation was much worse than “average”. Growing up in a small and conservative town, Chris, now openly gay, was constantly bullied at school for the way he sounded and acted. The actor is quoted saying that back in these days he felt like “a lone duck in a swan-filled pond who criticized everyone“. Bullying and obnoxious people were not the only or the greatest of problems that Colfer had to deal with. His sister suffers from severe epilepsy and sometimes experiences up to 15 seizures per hour. Needless to say, a life in the family whose member has such a horrible disability can get really stressful. Chris used acting as a way to escape from all this stress and find some peace of mind.
Now as about Chris’s career in television and movies, it all happened really fast. In 2009 he just landed a role in popular television series and gained critical acclaim recognition right away. The portrayal of Kurt Hummel has garnered Chris a spectrum of prestigious awards, including Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries, or Television Film, People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Comedy Actor and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. As far as we know, each episode of Glee increases Curt Colfer net worth by $45 thousand.
What you should also know is that Chris has wrote, produced and starred in his own movie, titled Stuck by Lightning. He has also written a book for kids, The Land of Stories, which turned out to be New York Times number-one bestseller. Each of these projects has contributed to the growth of overall Chris Colfer net worth.
