How Many Licks Does It Take? Glee's Darren Criss Shares a Wild Fan Interaction

Did Susan Blackwell give fans the OK to lick Darren Criss?

Ever wonder what Darren Criss' face tastes like? There at least two individuals who know firsthand. The Glee star and Audience Choice Award winner Darren Criss recently revealed to Cosmopolitan Magazine that his wildest fan encounter involved some tongue.

Criss told Cosmo that a Glee fan (maybe inspired by the signature move of's Susan Blackwell?!) took the actor by surprise. “A guy licked my face—straight up grabbed my head and licked my face,” Criss said. Wonder what that looks like? We have an idea!

For those who don’t remember, Blackwell spread the love and licked Criss’ face in the post-show interview after the 2012 Audience Choice Awards, which Criss hosted (and won the trophy for Favorite Replacement for his performance in the recent Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.)

In the short Cosmo interview, Criss also discusses returning to the hit FOX show without Cory Monteith, playing a gay character and a memorable real-life break-up.

The fifth season of Glee returns to FOX on September 26 with a two-part tribute to the Beatles. The upcoming season will welcome yet another brand new cast member, Erinn Westbrook, according to Westbrook will play Bree, a mean girl who joins the Cheerios and shakes things up at McKinley High.
