2018 is off to a great start for Darren Criss! The actor and singer-songwriter is making a splash in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace for his critically praised portrayal of killer Andrew Cunanan, and he just got engaged to his longtime girlfriend! He and Mia Swier, a writer and musician, have been dating for seven-and-a-half years and posted an adorable photo announcing their engagement.
The fun-loving couple is sure to have a unique celebration for their wedding, with Darren’s musical theater background and Mia’s experience singing for punk-rock bands. Though primarily known for acting, Darren is also a singer-songwriter, so don’t be surprised if he serenades his new bride on their wedding day. Fans are sure to be hopeful for a reunion with his Glee costars… perhaps even a performance such as the many weddings featured on the show. Longtime followers of Darren would also love to see fellow members of StarKid Productions, the theater company he helped found while at the University of Michigan, in attendance. The group rose to prominence and helped start Darren’s career when their original production A Very Potter Musical went viral, in which the actor played Harry Potter. Perhaps at least one element of the fantasy series will make its way into the wedding décor.
