AE: Let’s talk about Klaine for a minute. As of the last episode, they are at least talking now. Do you think in the long run that absence makes the heart grow fonder for them?
CC: I think so, and I think it’s good for them just to have their own lives rather than be halves of one character. I think at least as an audience member I kind of want to watch them go and do their own thing, and then if they come back together in the end sure, great. But I think they should probably live their own lives rather than sharing a life. I think that’ll do them some good. But what will your readers think? I can never really get a good feel for it.
AE: People are really passionate about them, and they get really stuck on them together, but I think it will be good for them.
CC: And that’s what I’ve always said in interviews. I’ve always been ‘oh, it would be great if they had a problem’ because as an actor it’s not fun to say ‘I love you’ in every scene. But then people got really mad at me, and I’m like ‘why are you mad at me?’ That’s like saying you’re mad at me because I wish it was cloudy today. It’s part of life.
AE: I don’t know what’s coming down the line, but I would actually like to see Kurt fall for somebody who’s maybe just as good for him as Blaine is.
AE: So it’s not a good guy/bad guy kind of thing but just to see what he would do. It would be a good conflict.
CC: Right. Exactly. One thing is you don’t want kids to...at least maybe I’m just really independent in this sense, but I hate it when kids throw their lives away for another kid. Because they think ‘oh I’m not going to go to college, I’m going to stay here and live with my boyfriend.’ No. Go to college. Do not throw your life away because you have a boyfriend now that you won’t have in six months.
