Chris Colfer Hasn't Left Acting Behind, But Books Are His Priority Right Now

Chris Colfer stops by AOL Build to chat about his brand new book, “The Land of Stories: An Author’s Odyssey” in New York City on Tuesday afternoon (July 12).

The 26-year-old actor and author spoke about his new book and putting acting on the sidelines for the moment.

“It used to be all about Glee. Now it’s all kids, running up to me and telling me how much they love the books and what they want to happen. Sometimes they have really good points,” he shared about how his fanbase changed. “I was really worried that the crowds would dissipate when the show ended. They’ve only grown and grown.”

Chris added about putting acting on the side, “If something great comes along, fantastic. I still make it a priority. But books are my number one priority right now. It’s storytelling. Acting and writing are two different forms of storytelling. We’re addicted to helping people escape their day to day life.”

Chris also appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Today earlier in the week.
