Happy Birthday, Chris Colfer!

May 27, 2013

One of the best young actors on television celebrates a birthday today.

Chris Colfer - whose portrayal of Kurt Hummel on Glee has earned him numerous awards, including a 2011 Golden Globe - is now 23 years old. Hurry up and send him your best wishes on this Memorial Day!

Named one of the most influential people in Hollywood two years ago by Time, Hummel had next to no previous acting experience when he auditioned for the Fox hit.

But creator Ryan Murphy was so impressed by his reading for the character of Artie that he actually created Kurt just for Colfer.

The gay high school student has since been at the center of a well-publicized bullying storyline and has also been involved in one of television's most prominent same-sex relationships.

Colfer, meanwhile, also landed at number-one on The New York Times best-seller's list with "Struck by Lightning." Impressive indeed!

Glee Season 4 concluded in early May and Glee Season 5 will kick off in September.
