About Darren Criss
Darren Criss net worth is estimated at $1.5 million and for most of us this seems a huge fortune. But I guess for somebody like Darren rolling in money only seems normal. His father is a successful banker who moved to Hawaii (only for a few years, though) to start the EastWest Bank and act as it‘s CEO and Chairman. The pops has also been on Board of Directors for the San Francisco Opera and it is no secret that this post is only available for those who open their wallets quite a bit. Anyway, this was not exactly Darren Criss net worth: even though he is most likely to inherit it one day, this was the fortune of your father. And I am sure that knowing you have earned $1.5 million using your own talent and hard work feels much better than just having your dad ready to pay for you. But enough about his family, let‘s talk about Darren‘s career.
Darren, who is currently 27 years old, has been doing theatre ever since he was a kid. At the age ten he debuted as Cesarion on the play Fanny and during the following couple of years featured on two more 42nd Street Moon Productions: Do I Hear the Waltz? and Babes in Arms. He then took a 6-year break and returned to the theatre in 2005 with Shed a Little Light: The Music of James Taylor, produced by American Conservatory Theater. Since then, Darren has been doing plays almost on the regular bases but there was one particular play that preconditioned the growth of Darren Criss net worth: A Very Potter Musical. This play was a parody of some of the famous novels by J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It was not just that the musical attracted huge audiences – the original album, which offered the recorded music and lyrics written by Criss, experienced an unprecedented commercial success. The album based on another musical, titled Me and My Dick, was even more popular, becoming the first charting student-produced musical recording: it hit Top Cast Albums at No. 11.
Another important source of Darren‘s income is his career on movies and television. The actor made his film debut in 2005, appearing in I Adora You. As a movie actor, he has not achieved much since then, but Criss‘ career on television has been going pretty well, to say the least. Since the year 2010 the actor has starred on popular American musical comedy-drama television series Glee. Needless to say, the role of Blaine Anderson in this show has made a significant contribution to the overall Darren Criss net worth.
