On-screen tonight it may turn into a battle royale between Sebastian and the New Directions crew, but OFF-screen there is no love lost between newcomer Grant Gustin and his co-stars!

Naya Rivera (Santana) dished recently that she loved working with him on “Smooth Criminal,” and Darren Criss (Blaine) has been singing his praises since day one!

Unsurprisingly, it turns out those feeling(s) are mutual…

In an interview with Chicago’s RedEye, Grant shared a heartwarming story of a bonding moment between he and Darren on the first day on set. “My very first day, Darren Criss was giving me a lot ― because I had never even been on a set with cameras or anything, so I didn’t know what anybody’s job was. I didn’t know what the hell was going on. So Darren was amazing walking me through kind of everyone’s job on the set, what was going on, what things meant that were probably very elementary that I didn’t know.”

Aww, big brother Darren to the rescue! We love it.

Grant continued, “He made a point to say, ‘I’m not trying to belittle you or make you feel dumb here; I just want to let you know.”


Grant also shared in the interview that he’d love to put his tap-dance skills to use! (LOVE!) and that he “wouldn’t be surprised if eventually we saw a completely different side to Sebastian.” (Hmmm!) Check out the whole interview here.
