When Chris Colfer got to sing “Defying Gravity” earlier this season on “Glee,” it wasn’t just a fun moment for the “Wicked”-obsessed actor.
“I have a ‘Wicked’ shrine in my bedroom at home,” Colfer confides to Zap2it. “That was like a life highlight for me. I used to sing that song around the house, in the shower, you name it.”
And it gets even better. This season’s story lines have given the young actor a chance to work with both Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, the two original stars of the “Wizard of Oz”-based Broadway musical.
“If someone had told me a year ago that I would be working with Kristin and Idina in the same month, I would have said, ‘Why are you making fun of me?’ ” Colfer admits.
