Day 25: Favourite Chris quote about Darren.
Were you surprised that everyone reacted so strongly to Darren Criss?
I think it was so successful because it’s the first time you see Kurt smile, personally. So you’re welcome, Darren…
No, I mean, I was a huge fan of Darren’s, and he doesn’t believe me. He doesn’t believe that I was a huge A Very Potter Musical fan before, even though I quote it all the time and try to convince him, he still doesn’t believe me. He thinks I just did some research on him. So yeah, I definitely was not surprised.
And [Teenage Dream] was such a good song. Like, we heard the arrangement first and I got chills. I thought, ‘This is one of the best songs we’ve ever done.’Are you hoping he stays on the show long-term?
Yeah! Yeah, he’s fun to have around.
