Darren Criss discussing Blaine's age at ComicCon 2011:
- Interviewer: So do you think Blaine is a senior, or is he the younger man?
- Darren: I have no idea! I remember—this is exactly when I tried to seek out information [online]. To find—when the show first started, things were so quick—I got the part and then we started shooting, and I didn't know anything. I didn't know his real name. I didn't know his, his last name. I didn't know anything, anything. And, um, I remember seeing something online that said, you know, "Oh, Blaine is a year older. He's, he's the old dog, he's been through this." So I was, "Okay. He's a year older than, than Kurt." But, I don't know if they really remember that. I don't know if that really means anything. Um, so, who knows? Maybe—I think Dalton, because they don't go to class ever, it's got, like, a seven year program. So he's a year older but he could still be, you know, in sixth grade. Who knows?
