|Darren Criss in Toronto for Glee Live! In Concert! Tour|
Despite starring in a bold and outrageous Musical Sitcom, some Cast members of Fox's Glee appear to be rather Fan-shy off-Camera. Arriving in Toronto earlier today, Heather Morris, Kevin McHale, Darren Criss and Mark Salling, plus recent Cast additions Titus Makin Jr., Riker Lynch and Curt Mega had adventures of their own in Toronto.
McHale and Morris enjoyed their afternoon shopping in Yorkville, perusing the Fashions of Holt Renfrew, H&M, Roots, Aritzia and many more. Catching them on their way back to their Hotel, I was able to get them to sign my Season 1 DVD but when other Fans asked kindly for Photos, Morris replied "We're five minutes later for Dinner. We're not doing Photos today...", walking away mid-sentence. Almost an hour later she and some Friends left her Hotel, telling eager and excited Fans, "We don't appreciate you taking our Photo", before rushing into a private SUV.

Meanwhile, Criss, Makin, Lynch and Hall - also known as the Dalton Academy Warblers - rented Bixi Bikes and went on a Bike Ride through the City, winding-up in trendy Queen St. West. Arriving back to their Hotel separately, Criss took a moment to greet Fans from a distance, telling them "I'm really tired and have to go to bed. See you guys at the Show?". It was 8:00 PM. The remaining Warblers who arrived back a little later however were delightfully friendly, taking time to greet Fans, posing for Photographs. It was learned that Makin was celebrating his Birthday in the City later this evening.

Salling failed to go any further for his Toronto Fans upon arriving from the Airport, throwing only a quick wave. One Fan inside the Hotel who asked him for a Photo was told by Salling, "I feel like shit. Sorry.".
A couple hours later though, Salling, Criss, Makin, Lynch and Hall were all seen in the Lobby of their Hotel all dressed-up for a night out and posing for Photographs with Fans inside, while denying their handful of Fans outside who waited all day. Leaving their Hotel in Taxi Cabs from a secret underground Exit, they waved on their way out for a night of fun on the Town leaving Fans disappointed.
Have Morris, McHale, Salling and Criss reached the level of Fame and Notoriety that warrants their blatant lying to Fans, making exceptions for some Fans and not others? Are they not obligated to interact with Fans on days they are not performing? Are they "above" Autographs and Photos already with only a Tour and two
