Cute Darren story from Lauren Potter’s Q&A at DePaul University tonight!
I’m slightly confused about the timeline of this and can’t remember the song right now, but this is how the story was told.
When Artie sings to Becky in the McKinley auditorium, the scene was filmed very late at night after a long hard day on set - it was the day they’d hung Cory’s picture in the choir room. Lauren’s cousin said everyone on set had had a difficult day because that had been so emotional. (Her cousin talked about this part, Lauren didn’t want to.)
During Kevin’s performance on stage, Darren was off in the background “acting like a goofball to make Lauren laugh during the scene.” He’s not seen on camera, of course, but during the filming of Artie’s performance, Darren was jumping around goofing off and doing everything possible to make Lauren smile and giggle.
I just thought it was cute and knew you guys would like to hear about it! :)
