Gay Times UK interviewed Glee’s Darren Criss and Chris Colfer. Criss plays Blaine, the boyfriend of Kurt (Chris Colfer) on Glee. The gay couple who actually has a good following is about to give life the realities of relationships. We all know that the confusing labyrinth of navigating relationships in this world affects us all. There’s always something behind closed doors that we don’t see when we see couples in love. It is not as perfect as it seems.
I’m kind of glad in a way that they are infusing the realities of life and not pretending Blaine and Kurt’s relationship to end up like a Disney fairy tale. S***t happens.
So what did Criss have to say about it? Did Blaine really cheat on Kurt?
“Well, we don’t know if he did actually cheat.”
“I have my own ideas about who Blaine is, and obviously the writers have a better idea, and so you find the middle ground and try to do your job to make it as truthful as possible. I think about three years ago, when we met Blaine, if you had told me he was going to cheat ,I would have been like, ‘What? No way, man!’ I thought that would never happen. But then again, people are layered, they have a lot of different things going on and maybe that’s who he was when he met Kurt because he was trying to give a good impression – well, I think he was being genuine – but people’s interests in other people get complicated. It’s not as black and white as him being this knight in shining armour. And also people grow apart and grow different, so it was my job to be like, ‘I guess if he does this, then I have to rationalise where and at what point Blaine would be at to do such a thing’, and I guess they try to justify that. I’m not going to say that it was justified, but he tries to rationalise it by the fact he’s been abandoned and it’s tough, and he couldn’t hold on anymore. But yeah, it’s a bummer, It’s always a bummer when you see nice couples going down the drain. Damn.”
