Can we just talk about Darren Criss for a minute?
He is a classically trained violinist who taught himself how to play the piano, drums and guitar, amongst other instruments.
He sings in Italian and French, and received Maxima Cum Laude and Magna Cum Laude for Latin in HS, and he has read his favourite book, The Little Prince, in English and French and as of April this year, he was reading it in Italian.
His use of the English language is so broad that you need a fucking dictionary on hand when you’re reading his interviews.
He doesn’t care if you are ‘gay, straight, purple, orange or dinosaur.’
He always knows exactly what to say to inspire the shit out of people and make them feel great about themselves.
He signed autographs and took pictures with EVERY SINGLE FAN at Up Fronts, even when security told him he had to get inside numerous times but he ignored them telling them that the event was for fans and he wasn’t going anywhere until he was done.
He, along with Jane, Jenna and Harry, is helping to fund an arts scholarship in Cory’s honour and wore a black ribbon to the GML premiere in NY in his memory.
He works with numerous charities and visits sick children in hospital.
He always laughs at and makes fun of himself and has remained totally humble throughout everything that has happened to him in the past five years.
A girl, whose friend Josh tragically passed away much too young, met Darren in his dressing room during the LU tour and told him all about her friend and his story. The next night, Darren would be playing in LA and it would be the one-month anniversary of her friend’s passing, so she asked Darren if he would dedicate his performance of Not Alone to him, to which he responded tearing up, “Absolutely yes, I will. Tomorrow in LA, Not Alone will be for Josh”.
When hiring a tour manager, Darren made a big deal of making sure that the person he hired would be “100% okay and supportive” of his LGBT fans and brought it up in every interview.
That’s just some of the amazing shit that Darren has done. He genuinely has a heart made of gold. Not to mention the fact that the dude is insanely intelligent even though he acts like an idiot sometimes! Oh, and did I forget to mention that he looks like THAT?!
