My at the 2012 Glee Project Emmy Push with my sister and all the Glee Projects cast members!
Interviewer: It seemed like Darren Criss was one of your biggest fans on last night’s finale.
Damian: You know, I noticed that too! When Ryan is asking the cast who they want on the show, no one really mentioned me, so it made me look like the underdog. But that was all apart of his plan because when Ryan was talking to me, he told me everybody on the set of “Glee” wants you to win. That was the most mind-blowing thing ever. To hear that these professionals are not only following your journey, but they also like you as a person and want your talent on their show. To hear that is like nothing I’ve ever heard. And to see Darren Criss go crazy for me was incredible.
Interviewer: So that means you guys are going to be best friends, right?
Damian: I think we are. I was at the “Glee” show in Ireland, and I met Darren Criss that night. I was chatting with him for a while, and he was like, ‘Dude I can’t wait for you to come to L.A. so that we can hang out.’ So I think he’s going to be a really good friend, and he’s a really humble guy. He’s an example of what we want to be. Last year, he was nothing, and now he’s like the star of “Glee.”
