Chris Colfer Covers 'Icon' Winter 2013

Chris Colfer takes the cover of the Winter 2013 issue of Icon magazine.

The 22-year-old Struck By Lightning star chatted with the glossy about typecasting, advice and writing. Check it:

On being typecast: Sometimes [I do worry], but I feel like if I have that worry, then I’m doing something right. It is interesting how many people really thinking that I am my character and that Glee is actually a documentary. But i don’t really see that as my problem. I’ve always know what I wanted to do and what I’m capable of so I’m not worried about it. I think it’s more of the world’s problem than mine.”

On writing children’s stories: “When I was ten years old, I got really into telling stories and entertaining people, and that’s when I chose my profession. I always hated reading and being told stories because I always wanted to change what I was hearing. It was the first story ["The Land of Stories"] that I came up with and it kind of morphed over the years.”

On his advice to others: “As cheesy as it sounds, if you dream it, it’ll happen. As long as you’re trying, you’re succeeding. You only stop succeeding once you give up. And I’ve met so many people who have just given up and it’s so sad. But I think as long as you’re trying to accomplish what you want, then that’s succeeding.”
