Darren Criss profiled in Esquire
It is so great to see Darren Criss getting attention for his starring role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
I became an instant fan the first time I ever saw him on Glee, have seen him at numerous events around town and he could not be nicer and had the thrill of seeing him in the title role of Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the Pantages in 2016.
Darren is profiled in the current issue of Esquire.
His star-making role on Glee is a brief part of the article:
The legacy of Glee has become a complex one, and (creator Ryan Murphy—along with some cast members—has admitted that the show was often fraught behind the scenes. But Criss’s name never comes up in any of the stories about backstage drama or feuds, and he seems to have made it through unscathed. “The thing that kept me stable on Glee was that I came in after the fact,” he points out. “It was already a massive hit, and then I joined, so I had a little bit more of a bird’s eye view. I always felt like an outsider looking in, like, ‘Wow, guys! I’m on Glee! How crazy is this?’ I was aware of the animal going in.”
