FORMER GLEE STAR ADMITS FILMING GLEE TOOK ITS TOLL AFTER SIX YEARS ON THE SHOW
TV heartthrob Matthew Morrison has fond memories off filming hit musical TV show Glee – but reveals he’s glad it’s now come to an end.
The actor starred as Will Schuester from 2009 to 2015 but with success comes extra demands and consequently long hours.
He said: “We worked tirelessly. It was 16 hour days minimum. We did dance rehearsals, recorded the show, filmed it and did press alongside that so it was long, long hours.
“It was a great show. I really feel I was their teacher. A lot of the kids hadn’t done anything like that before and I’d done Broadway shows so in many ways I really was their teacher.”
ON DANCING AS A BOY GROWING UP
I found my passion at a young age. There were moments of insecurities but I was pretty athletic so I got away with it.
ON HIS WIFE
She is stunning, she is from Hawaii so we got married there. Eventually when we have kids they will have Hawaiian names. We want to follow that tradition. At our wedding she did a dance. It’s a tradition a woman ‘leis’ her man!
ON SEX SCENES
I have the most supportive wife. She tells me if I have a sex scene or kissing she she wants me to really go for it. She wants it to go right. They’re the weirdest things to film.
I had a sex scene with Cara Delevingne in a film recently. It’s always strange. Very choreographed, there’s a bunch of people watching and you’re naked.
ON HIS UPCOMING NEW LONDON SHOW
It’s three shows. I tell stories of my life. I’m so used to playing characters but this is a chance for the audience to really see Matthew Morrison. I go through a career retrospective of some shows I’ve been in from Glee to Hairspray.
He also helped celebrate host Saira Khan’s birthday.
