GQ caught up with the Glee star in their June issue and asked about his recent rise to fame. From the moment we heard “Teenage Dream,” it was all about Criss and his band of Warblers. Lea Michele has some serious competition from the boy who does basement-drunk far too well (his “Maniac” dance at Rachel’s two-ticket mixer remains a crowd favorite).
So is Criss overwhelmed by this sudden surge in fame? Not so much. He told GQ that life on the set is delightful, “It’s all very relaxing. You get a trailer on-set. You get treated really well.”
So how does he keep things low-key when not working? He gets scruffy. “I don’t shave when I’m not working,” Criss confessed. Keep those eyes peeled for a bearded Blaine, kids.
