Darren Criss: 'Really Thankful' for Glee!

Darren Criss chats with Interview magazine in a new article.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actor had to share:

On being thankful for Glee: “Even if Blaine was to get hit by a bus in two episodes, I’m really thankful for the time I’ve been given on the show.”

On growing up in a supportive family: “My parents encouraged it, but they didn’t really play music. I’m in a real minority as far as having really supportive parents in regards to the arts. They never batted an eye as far as not letting me do that stuff. That’s invaluable. I can’t believe how unabashedly supportive they were about everything, between music and acting.”

On his strong, openly gay character, Blaine: “When other shows present the gay character thing, it’s typically been in much more adult situations, like gay men living in New York or closeted men who are married and struggling with that ordeal, but never really the core of the journey of defining your sexuality. Blaine offers a beautiful counter to that and makes such a great addition to the many-colored palette that is Glee. So as far as me having any reservations about it, no. I read it being like, this would be so cool, whoever gets to play this, it’s going to be a great thing for an already great show.”
