Cory Monteith is still amazed by how positively people respond to Glee.
The hit show has just picked up its second Golden Globe for television’s best comedy or musical, and the 28-year-old is starting to wonder if there’s anyone out there who doesn’t love the all-singing, all-dancing spectacular.
“It’s nice to be liked. It’s been fun, everybody’s very supportive and has something nice to say. I’m just waiting for all the haters – where did all the haters go? Maybe I don’t read the right blogs,” he said.
The actor, who plays high school jock Finn Hudson, admitted that he wasn’t an obvious choice for the role.
“It’s my running joke that I’m a bad dancer and it’s true. It’s obvious. I’d never even been an actor, I was a construction worker before. This has all come as quite a shock.”
Cory is happy to keep starring in Glee – which has kicked off its second series on E4 on Mondays and Channel 4 on Sundays – for as long as possible.
“I think I’m in it for three more years, I don’t know. Maybe I’m in it for seven,” he laughed.
“I can’t play a high school kid forever though because I’m damn near 30. But it’s a great show, I think it should go on as long as it can.”
