Darren Criss has taken on the character of Blaine in the hit show Glee as he becomes the latest gay character and possible love interest for resident character Kurt and the long awaited storyline has hit the air across the pond and has got everyone speculating the possible storyline that will unravel for the pair.

Criss, who portrays Blaine, makes his debut in the episode “Never Been Kissed” and performs the summer hit “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry.

The Wall Street Journal managed to catch up with the new heartthrob to find out how he managed to get a role on the most talked about show. When asked how the young actor replied: I can never really answer how or why I was cast.

There’s certainly a lot of components but I don’t know the concrete reasons. I auditioned for the role like any other actor. I’ve gone out for “Glee” before, so I was no stranger to the general casting family. I was encouraged to make the Myspace videos; I didn’t really want to do it. I think a lot of people see those videos and think “this is what got him on the part.” They’re separate in my head. All my material was sent to Ryan Murphy, so I think it was mostly the audition, but the other videos didn’t hurt.

When asked about his character he said: Blaine is a really cool guy. It’s a dream come true as an actor to get to play someone so complex. He’s an out-and-proud student who goes to an all-boys school, which is similar to the all-boys school I had gone to. When I got to the set I was like, “How did they know?”
