Glee actor Max Adler, who portrays the character Karofsky in the hit Fox musical television series, has revealed how pleased he has been with his current storyline. In the season finale, Karofsky attempted to commit suicide after enduring some mean bullying and Max has praised the writers for how they have dealt with the subject.
Adler explained, "I really think it's incredibly brave and honest and it's treating the character with the integrity that he deserves. I think you can't truly appreciate [the good side of high school] without experiencing the other side, which is the fear, the anxiety, and the struggle that teenagers go through identifying themselves."
He added, "What I'm so happy about with this episode is that it gives that really amazing, powerful message to victims of bullying and to people who are or have contemplated suicide that there is hope; there are people who accept you for who you are, and you don't have to change yourself for what society tells you to be."
Max continued, "It could end here. But my personal thought is that there might be something else down the line to show where Karofsky goes post-hospital. But that's all up to the writers. They've done everything amazingly well and treated this character with incredible consistency and honesty and integrity. Whatever they do, I think it will be genius."
Glee is set to return to Fox with a brand new episode on April 10.
