Son to Timothy Colfer and Karyn Colfer, Chris was raised in a small farming community in Clovis, California. He was a kid gifted with great imaginations, which he put into good use while at a tender age. Colfer had a deep passion for writing, and he used it to entertain people. His grandmother used to edit his text, advising and encouraging him as he started writing a fairytale-inspired novel, ‘The Land of Stories,’ which was released in 2012.

While in middle school, Colfer was bullied to the point that he chose to be home schooled for a part of his seventh grade and eighth grade. He enrolled at Clovis East High School and joined the debate and speech program, where he won champion titles. He was also an active member in the drama club. As a senior in high school, he wrote and directed ‘Shirley Todd, ‘a play in which all roles were gender-reversed. This experience would later turn him into a star.

Chris Colfer’s first show was an appearance in a community play entitled ‘West Side Story.’ He was also involved in ‘The Sound of Music,’ a production in which he portrayed Kurt von Trapp. At 18 years, he appeared in the short film ‘Russell Fish: The Sausage and Eggs Incident,’ in which he portrayed the main character.

In 2009, Colfer came to international stardom for his role in ‘Glee.’ Initially, he had not auditioned to play the part of Kurt Hummel, but for Artie Abrams, a role that was eventually given to Kevin McHale. Ryan Murphy, the creator of the show, was impressed with Chris so much that he reserved the role of Kurt for him. The series saw him scoop various awards as well as two Emmy Award nominations.

When it comes to Colfer’s writing career, the youngster signed a deal to write two children’s novels with “Little, Brown and Company”, which also saw him increase his net worth. His first book was launched in July 2012 entitled and ‘The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell.’ In only two weeks the book rose to the top of the New York Best Seller list in the category of Children’s Chapter Books. His second book, ‘The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns,’ debuted in August 2013, and rose to second position on the same list. Following the tremendous success of his first two books, Chris signed another contract which saw him release three more books with the publisher: ‘The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning,’ ‘The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms’ and the ‘Curvy Tree.’ His net worth was growing considerably.

In other works, Colfer produced, starred in, and wrote ‘Struck by Lightning,’ a comedy film. He agreed on a deal with the Disney Channel to adapt a book called ‘The Little Leftover Witch’ for a TV pilot. In 2014, he starred in one episode of ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ in which he played Victoria’s son Tony. He moved to London in 2015, where he starred playing the lead character in ‘Noel Coward,’ a film that is yet to be released.

In his personal life, nothing has been made public of any romantic liaison of Chris Colfer. He is a philanthropist and has supported a number of programs such as The Trevor Project, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Heifer International. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
