Colfer has since made the role his own, and reveals that Kurt’s diva front is based more on his own childhood pet cat Simon than anything else.
“Kurt is so my cat. Simon thought he was so superior to everyone else. He would look down and frown upon them,” Colfer says, arching an eyebrow to demonstrate. “He used to stretch and count his claws in front of us and he was just so grand and had the biggest head. I picked up on all of that.”
Kitty Kurt is so canon.
