[EVENE/LEFIGARO] Darren Criss, from Glee to Imogene
In Paris for the premiere of Imogene in the Champs Elysées Film Festival, before its release on 7th August, Darren Criss, one of the stars of Glee, gave interviews from the top of the Publicis theater, with views of the Arc de Triomphe. And judging from the queue in front of the theather, Criss’ triumph is inevitable.
Of Darren Criss, many know only his character on Glee: the extrovert Blaine Anderson. Openly gay and best student of the choir, Blaine won the heart of the teenagers around the world. As proves the line in front of Publicis, in front of which the fans hope to see the singer and actor, in Paris during his sold out tour. But Criss didn’t come to talk about Glee or his musical carrier but about his first appearance on the big screen in the independent movie Imogene, directed by the brains of American Splendor, Shari Springer Bergman and Robert Pulcini. He shares the stage with the queen of the American comedy, discovered by Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig. A romcom about two lost souls who find and help each other. The actor reveals a comical aspect that suits him well, one thing he can add to his many talents: showman, singer, dancer, actor and Broadway star. And good with journalists, because Criss is particularly friendly and likes to talk with the same humor of Glee, of the role of Lee, of Gene Kelly and of the genius of Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids). Verbatim.
