NO BIG DEAL.
Seriously though, it was so fun. Chris Colfer is SUCH a sweetheart. I was expecting to catch, like, a glimpse of him or two, but he came out and jumped up and down - he looked so happy to see us - then took the mike and thanked us all for coming and said he’d been nervous, because people have come out in droves to see Glee but never just him. He gave us each a letter - he signed every one - thanking us for our involvement. He had two lengthy Q&A sessions with us during downtime on the set and kept doing little dances with the other actors. He seems like such a fun guy.
His character was in a pencil costume (pictures are making their way around) and kept spitting “fuck you” or “screw you” at the silent crowd while the cameras were rolling. Then the director would yell “cut” and he’d go back to smiling and waving at us. At one point, when the director told us “Now we know you all love Chris Colfer, but for this scene, you have to think he’s a loser”, he kind of turtled in on himself with the costume and waddled around like a penguin; it was random but hilarious.
The girl who plays the oldest daughter on “Modern Family” was on set, too: She’s the head cheerleader character. There were a couple of other famous people filming with them, but I didn’t know them as well as my fellow Tumblrees did. (Hi, new Tumblr friends!) Lauren Lopez is apparently in the movie, though she wasn’t on set. Ashley Fink WAS on set, but she was just visiting - she’s not in the movie itself. We waved to her at one point and she laughed and waved back.
All in all, a great night. It’s gonna be an awesome movie! :)
