While a couple of fans spotted Darren Criss in Manila yesterday, April 1, some didn’t believe it at first. But guess what, it’s no April Fool’s because the Fil-Am actor is definitely back in the country.
Hi @DarrenCriss! My sister apparently saw you here in Manila and she notified me right away. Kindly confirm 😥😥😥— Erika de Jesus (@emddjemddj) March 31, 2019
Having arrived in the Philippines last Sunday, March 31, Darren Criss is currently in Manila with his manager Rick Rollins and stylist Ashley Weston. But as to why he is here remains unanswered.
Meanwhile, the former Glee actor joined Francis Libiran and his partner Christian Mark Jacobs for dinner at The Peak at Grand Hyatt Manila.
Libiran was the one who designed the Pintados-inspired barong Criss wore during his wedding reception back in February as a way of honoring his mom who hails from Cebu.
