Darren CrissDarren Everett Criss (born February 5, 1987) is an American actor, singer-songwriter, musician, composer, internet personality, and one of the founding members of Team StarKid, a theater production company.  He played Harry Potter in the musicals A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel, and currently portrays Blaine Anderson, an openly gay student, in the TV series Glee.

Criss was born in San Francisco.  His mother, a native of Cebu in the Philippines, is of Chinese, Spanish, and Filipino descent, and his father has Irish ancestry.  He attended Stuart Hall for Boys and then later graduated from Saint Ignatius College Preparatory.  In 2009, Criss obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance degree from the University of Michigan.

Criss is a classically trained violinist who began playing at the age of five.  He later taught himself guitar, piano, cello, mandolin, harmonica and drums.  He played drums in a band with his brother, Chuck, until Chuck moved to New York City to develop his music career (and subsequently joined the indie rock group Freelance Whales).

Criss made his professional stage debut at the age of ten, in 42nd Street Moon's 1997 production of Fanny in the role of Cesario.  The next year, Criss played Mauro in the same company's production of the Richard Rodgers and Stephen Sondheim musical Do I Hear a Waltz? followed by Babes in Arms in 1999, in which he played Beauregard Calhoun.

Criss is part owner of Team StarKid, a theater production company that was formed by students at the University of Michigan.  His roles with Team StarKid include "Harry Potter" in the YouTube viral musicals A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel.  Both productions are musical-comedies based on the Harry Potter series by J.K.  Rowling.

His early television career includes roles on the television series Eastwick and Cold Case.

On November 9, 2010, Criss joined the cast of Glee in the episode "Never Been Kissed" as Blaine Anderson, a gay student at rival school Dalton Academy and lead singer of Dalton's Glee club, The Warblers.  He is currently a recurring character in season two and plays the boyfriend of main character Kurt Hummel, played by Chris Colfer.  Glee creator Ryan Murphy stated, "Darren has a major, major arc...  He sort of becomes Kurt's mentor and then maybe love – Kurt had to leave his own school because of bullying and goes to an all-boys academy and finds acceptance because that school has a zero-tolerance no-bullying policy.  So Kurt really admires him and respects him.  He plays someone who's one year older than Chris' character, so he's the old pro."
