Two things Darren shared during his Q&A that I haven’t seen around (I might have just missed them, but just to be sure)
- He doesn’t think he has a Broadway voice. He wouldn’t mind doing some productions here and there, but he thinks his voice is way more fit for pop music. - When he first started glee and fame hit him, it was psycologically very hard because he was (is) constantly subjected to an incredible amount of criticism and hate. When he thinks about his job, he has accepted that there are some very bad downsides but when he looks at the grand scheme of things, the amazing always surpasses the bad.
so did anyone actually tell the guys like peter story that darren told last night on here because i can’t find it anywhere?
so darren basically said about how he always reuses his songs when they do shows so when they did guys like potter it was originally about this guy called peter who he didn’t like because he was a douche but his girlfriend was really nice, and darren was like ‘i had a jokey crush on her’ and he used to be like sooo when ya gunna leave peter and go out with me, and then he sung it as guys like peter
I’ve been told not much info from the Darren Q&A is out? We weren’t allowed film, but the con did, I have no idea if it will go online. While I’m waiting for Darren I’ll try and write some about it?
So here’s my recount of the story with Lea and Chris mentioned, as I’ve seen a few versions about? It’s been hours since, but I think I get the gist and details across. And mostly I don’t think it’s easy to explain in tweets
One of the first things he said was it was great to see the Starkids, but also the Glee guys. He mentioned that Max was the first guy he met on set, and Max is one of his better friends. He then stopped himself about how people read so much into every single interaction that happens, and how Max being a good friend doesn’t mean that anyone else isn’t, they’re all good friends.
He was then saying they make a lot of jokes about that, like when they are on the golf cart things (brain has blanked on the word), and they see people who are on the tour looking at them, they make jokes about what people will think.
So his example was, if he and Chris are on the back of the cart, and Lea’s in the front, they’ll whisper things like “oh look, they don’t like Lea” or “yeah, it makes total sense they’d always sit like that.” Basically making fun of how strongly people latch into any interaction they see?
It was a really funny story, and it’s obvious the point was they’re all friends and we shouldn’t take a single picture we see to tell is all about their relationships.
