The Blaine of ‘Glee’ reveals the trick he uses to avoid being followed by paparazzi and fans so he can enjoy his day-off.”Glee” star Darren Criss revealed that he likes to grow beards while he’s on the day-off. The 24-year-old actor, who is well known for playing an openly gay student Blaine Anderson in the popular series, shared that the disguise helps him to stay low so he can ditch the paparazzi.
Describing how it feels becoming a famous star, the San Francisco-native star said, “It’s all very relaxing. You get a trailer on-set. You get treated really well.” He then unveiled how he wants to keep it that way when he’s on holiday by going around incognito, confessing “I don’t shave when I’m not working.”
Darren started his attempt in the showbiz industry as a viral internet sensation through his “Harry Potter” musical parody on YouTube. He also was one of the founding members of Team StarKid who has shared a series of video called “A Very Potter Musical Act”. Sharing that he never thought the videos had changed his life, the University of Michigan alum said, “I never imagined it would be viewed by teenagers in Australia.”
He recently did photo shoot for the cover of GQ Magazine for its June issue. A sneak peek at the upcoming issue has been made available to view.
