I actually had a lot of fun at my Senior Prom; we created our own fun Kings & Queens like Best Hair, Best Smile, Most Athletic, Most Geek Chic, and other crazy categories. I happened to win two categories, Friendliest and Most Artistic King. Anyway, when I heard that the boys of Glee are doing Teen Vogue’s Prom Issue I was, well, gleeful.
The four boys featured are Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike aka Other Asian), Darren Criss (Blaine), Chord Overstreet (Sam), and Kevin McHale (Artie). While I had hoped that Chris Colfer (Kurt) would make the cut, I am really happy with the chosen ones. To be honest, I’m just happy that it’s not Lea Michele (after her CQ and Cosmopolitan “controversial” spread). These boys looks so dapper in their prom outfits you just wish you could bring one of them as your prom date :)
Did you know that Harry Shum, Jr. was born in Costa Rica and is fluent in Spanish and Chinese? Also, he is a dancer and choreographer for a dance web series The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers who have performed at Ellen DeGeneres’ Ellen’s Even Bigger Really Big Show, Glee Live! Tour, and last year’s Academy Awards! Love him even more now? Yeah, take a number.
Darren Criss joins the long list of ridiculously good looking half-Asian actor; he has a Filipino mother and an Irish father. Before Glee, his claim of fame was his portrayal of Harry Potter in A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel, which he wrote most of the music. Oh yeah, he also released an EP called Human on iTunes. *sigh* Continue reading
