First thing this morning, I woke to discover that some beautiful person had made an excellent recording of Chris Colfer’s interview at the New Yorker Festival. It was 90 minutes of pure early-morning delight for me — but that said, I could be pretty happy listening to that particular actor read the Fanny Farmer Cook Book for 90 minutes.
But there are things I’d love to hear him discuss. Whether he wants to discuss them is another story, and it’s my impression that he often skirts more serious and deeper questions, partly because he’s a very private individual in a world where that’s almost impossible, and partly because he’s 21 and hell, still figuring stuff out.
But a lot of people are disappointed and some are downright angry. Apparently the younger fans took too long asking questions and declaring their undying love and the moderator asked questions that are common questions, and the answers to them known.
And yeah, the questions were old ones, but Chris Colfer handled the questions so well that it seemed fresh enough, while basic enough that a non-fan would go away with a good base too. The quality moments were those when it was easy to forget the moderator existed and the fans and Chris Colfer were just having fun.
So yeah, what would you have asked if you’d had the chance? We’ll try and make up answers 😉
