Jayma Mays, who plays guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury on Glee, hit the stage to sing “Let It Snow” at a Dunkin’ Donuts charity event in New York City on Dec. 10. After the performance, Star caught up with the 30-year-old actress to discuss everything from her hit show to starting a family with hubby Adam Campbell.

Were you surprised by Glee’s enormous success?
Jayma: Yes! We didn’t know what to expect when we started. The fact that people are watching and are really excited by it gets us even more excited to come to work.

Viewers have been waiting a long time for Emma and Mr. Schuester to kiss!
Jayma: So has Emma, let’s not lie about that! And for the record, he kissed her. Emma did not kiss him. Emma is not a homewrecker.

With the show on hiatus until April, what are you doing with your free time?
Jayma: I’m visiting family. That is the focus for the rest of this month. I am going to see my husband’s family, my family, our nieces and nephews and celebrate the holidays. I am so thankful we have the time to do that.

Your character fears germs. Are you the same in real life?
Jayma: I never really thought about it until I got this job and began to play Emma. But I will confess I am more aware now than I was before. Now I won’t touch handrails, and I keep Purell in my pocketbook.

Are you and Adam considering having a baby anytime soon?
Jayma: Definitely, but I don’t think we are ready just yet — maybe in a couple of years. We really want a family, because that is what life is about. If I can’t have kids, then I will adopt!
