Even though he's been quoted as wanting to be an actor who sings and not the other way around, he's inseparable from music. He wrote part of the music for ''AVPM'' and ''MeAndMyDick'', and all the music for ''Theatre/AVeryPotterSequel'', as well as for the new musical ''Theatre/{{Starship}}''. In the meanwhile, he put out his own 5-song EP, “Human”. He loves singing live; give this guy a mike, a guitar, and a stage, and he's a happy man.

* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: Averted. The guy has ''Glee'', writing songs for Creator/TeamStarKid, performing live shows for either ''Glee'', [=StarKid=] or himself, tons of photoshoots, and a Twitter feed to maintain, as well as side projects like voicing "Life of Leopold" for ''Funny or Die''.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Harry Potter is, by his own admission, a total douchebag. Darren Criss, on the other hand, is a very friendly and personable guy.



* OneOfUs: Admitted fanboy of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', Music/FlightOfTheConchords, musical theatre, comic books, Disney movies, and of course, ''Franchise/HarryPotter''. He even attended the ''Deathly Hallows'' premiere in cosplay. He is also a shipper and voted for "[=KurtCoBlaine=]" as the official PortmanteauCoupleName for Kurt×Blaine.



* PromotedFanboy:
** ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'' became so popular that he was invited to the ''Deathly Hallows, Part. 1'' movie premiere... which he attended excitably in ''full Harry costume''.
** With "Theatre/HedwigAndTheAngryInch" He discovered the movie as a teenager and if you want proof of his fan-love for the show, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j9SjGcOXIw just pick a recent interview, any recent interview.]] He describes it as his dream role, and has apparently been lobbying to play the part for a long, long time, until the stars finally aligned for him and he was cast to play Hedwig in the Broadway revival.



* SimilarlyNamedWorks: His EP shares its title with one of [[Music/{{Death}} Death's]] albums.
