get to know me meme: [1/5] favourite actors → darren criss
I want people to know that there is nothing more badass than being who you are.
"I hope that this is just the beginning, and that I get to thank you many more times for many more adventures as the years roll by. But for now, know that I am so very grateful for everything you’ve given me, and I am very proud of what we have accomplished together. From teenage dream to teenage dream, thank you for allowing me to live mine."
I think the violin is the root of almost everything I do, because there is an attention to detail and a precision, and it’s such a small margin of error. It’s an unbelievable training ground for so many disciplines. Again, it’s given me a particular penchant for harmonics and pitch and execution - and the dynamics of that sound - which goes back to my love of languages and my love of acting. In any scene work, talking is a musical function. A lot of actors, especially comedians, tend to be pretty well versed musicians. They understand cadence and phrasing. I think Bill Clinton would be a great example; he’s not a world-renowned sax player but he’s got a great sense jazz and timing. The bravado when he speaks comes from this sense of knowing how to land things.

“I’m not interested in being any kind of superstar or anything I’m not. I’m just a dude who got lucky and an artist who cares about the work that I do.”
