Actor Max Adler says last night's episode of Glee needed to be shown and talked about and commends the show's writers for making his character Karofsky more than a one-dimensional bully, according to an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT: Viewers of last night's episode of Glee learned that Karofsky, who had once bullied Kurt for being gay before he pledged his love to him, made an unsuccessful suicide attempt. "As an actor to portray this role on a show like this has been the most amazing opportunity that I could have asked for,” says Adler. “I was incredibly happy that they were brave enough and honest enough to go there because I think it’s a very prevalent issue now in the world.”
Adler says he doesn't believe Karofsky is actually in love with Kurt, but more enamored with the openness with which he leads his life. "To me it’s never been lustful or sexual," Adler says. "It’s always been that connection of really admiring Kurt for being the only person Karofsky sees that’s truly himself."
Last year Adler spoke with The Advocate about the episode when it's first revealed his Glee character is gay. Read it here.
