Glee star Darren Criss on the future of Blaine and Kurt

'They have a strong relationship. It’s good, it's healthy'

Glee star Darren Criss on the future of Blaine and Kurt
12 April 2012

Darren Criss loves his job playing gay high school student Blaine Anderson on Glee.

The 25-year-old star says he's grateful about 'having a job, singing and dancing, and being around amazing people that love to come to work.'

'Every day is really special because we spend it doing what we love,' he tells Out.com in an interview posted this week. 'The cast, the crew, everyone that works to make the show a success, is truly amazing. I am just really blessed.'

His character transferred from the private Dalton Academy last season to the public William McKinley High School to be near his boyfriend Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) who had temporarily attended Dalton to escape a bully.

Despite efforts by Dalton student Sebastian Smythe (Grant Gustin) to steal Blaine away from Kurt and one-time bully Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) being in love with Kurt, the couple has managed to stay together.

'I think they'll be okay,' says Criss. 'They have a strong relationship. It’s good, it's healthy. They've become a support system for each other.'

In this week's episode, viewers finally got to meet a member of Blaine's family – his older brother who was played by White Collar star Matt Bomer.

'We had a really great time, and he was very easy to relate to,' he says of Bomer.  'He was doing all of this hilarious stuff and it was hard for me not to laugh. He was great for comedic relief, and I think you see the chemistry that we had in the episode. He's is a great actor and I can honestly say I had a great time working with him.'
