Colfer was on the receiving end of numerous cheers and yelps from the excited audience at Tribeca on Saturday night. One young girl asked him for an autograph during the Q&A (“Follow-up question: Do you think you can sign this?”) and Glee co-stars Amber Riley and Ashley Fink were also in attendance. (Emma Watson was too, and she asked a question of one of the producers, to which Colfer replied, “You look so familiar!”)

“Creativity is the best gift ever and the worst curse ever,” Chris said when asked about his future writing process. “It kind of fills your body. It’s something you have to do. You can’t ignore it. You have to get stuff down.” 

In Struck by Lightning, Colfer plays Carson, a high school senior fiercely determined to attend Northwestern University and become a famous writer. To set himself apart from the competition, he starts a literary magazine and blackmails his classmates into writing for it.
