Darren Criss Interview
GAHHH <3 <3 <3
Not bad at all.
I can’t believe how happy I am that Chris gets to sing this song. When I saw the track listing a little while ago I was hoping he’d get this song. And he has. And he’s singing it with Darren. OMG! It will be nice to see Kurt have a guy to sing duets with. I’m a Hevans shipper but until Sam gets done being in denial it’s good that Kurt will have Blaine there for him and that they get to sing some beautiful songs, share some kisses under the mistletoe and all of that stuff that Kurt has been longing for. OMG, the wait until November is going to kill me. Ugh!
“My guess is as good as anybody’s,” shrugs newest Glee cast member Darren Criss of reports that his character Blaine—a charismatic, out-and-proud gay teen from a rival school—is being groomed as a love interest for Chris Colfer’s Kurt. “It’s a really big secret.”
The two meet in the Nov. 9 episode when Kurt, who is fast becoming fed up with life at McKinley High, considers transferring to the nearby Dalton Academy, where Criss’ character is a student. “I think Blaine’s most important role is…as a mentor to Kurt,” says Criss, whose only major pre-Glee TV credit was a stint on ABC’s short-lived Eastwick. “At this point, Kurt’s [sexuality] has been such a sense of discord in his life. Blaine finds [being gay] empowering. He embraces who he is, and sees Kurt [struggling with] the same things that he had to deal with, and I think he wants to impart that knowledge.”
Criss hopes Blaine will serve as a positive role model for viewers as well, given the recent string of suicides among gay youth. “It’s great to see a strong character like this on a hit show that so many people are watching,” he says. “I can’t really think of any other gay characters on TV that are this young and sure of themselves. I hope all the kids struggling with this issue can look to a guy like Blaine and feel [inspired] by his confidence.”
Come on, November 9th! I can’t wait!
