I think it’s an important character. It’s showing a dude who happens to be gay and comfortable with it, which we haven’t really seen on the show. Darren’s character is a gay guy, and you can see that, and I don’t think you can see it as much with Sebastian. I think it’s also important because it’s introducing a love triangle for Blaine and Kurt. It’s going to show these two aren’t together because they’re the only two gay characters. We don’t really know yet if I’m going to split them up yet, but this is ending their honeymoon phase and making them more like the rest of the couples on the show. I think it’s important to show, because it’s not like there’s couples and gay couples. Introducing some similar drama that everyone has seen before.

Grant Gustin, Glee’s new “villain” Sebastian, on where his character fits into the show.


Also in our Q&A with Grant: serious big-ups to Darren Criss, and an explanation for why, exactly, he tweeted his phone number.

Grant Gustin is SUPER NICE. I know he’s the new bad guy on Glee but I couldn’t help but be charmed (and happy to be one of his very first interviews). Releasing the Q&A in two parts at Billboard, so here’s taste one

“(Sebastian) is someone you wouldn’t necessarily know is gay unless you asked him, but he’d be the first person to tell you. He’s very confident and comfortable with who he is and what he wants. Darren (Criss) was that new confident strong gay character, and Sebastian is taking that a step further. He’s a guys-guy, just a dude who happens to be gay. He’s a lacrosse player, he’s popular. He’s after Blaine, obviously, and he’s also trying to take the place that Blaine had as the leader of the Warblers.” - Grant Gustin

Additional quotes —

On getting by with a little help from his new costars…
Darren was actually very cool, he would walk me through things as they were happening, helping me figure out what everyone’s job was and the lingo of a set. I had no idea how wide a shot was or how tight a shot was, what the guy next to me was doing touching my costume between takes. Darren was really cool helping me figure out the ropes, and he wanted to be really clear he wasn’t demeaning me. But I was like “No, bro, I need it!” Everyone was really cool and nice to me, and they didn’t need to do that! They’re TV stars and I’m nobody!

So … we kind of love Damian here. You will too.

1. Lea Michele doesn’t understand him!
“It’s been a pretty smooth ride with my accent, but there is one person who doesn’t quite understand me. I don’t know if she does this on purpose, but it’s pretty funny. Lea literally, after everything I say, will look at me like I have three heads. She just does not understand anything I say. It’s very funny. I think I have to repeat everything twice to Lea. Other than that, it’s been pretty smooth, which I totally didn’t expect.”
