Though she was originally hired as a choreographer for Glee, Heather Morris — who plays plays oversexed and undereducated cheerleader Brittany — steals more scenes with her deadpan, hilariously blank non sequitur (“I think my cat’s been reading my diary;” “Did you know that dolphins are just gay sharks?”) than her dance moves.
The show’s producers are clearly smitten. Morris, who typically delivers these Brittanyisms with achingly perfect timing to co-star Naya Rivera (who plays Santana), has played a noticeably stronger role in the second season. A recent, highly anticipated Britney Spears-themed episode centered on Morris and prominently featured her singing and dancing (turns out she’s not just the show’s comedic dark horse — the girl hcan sing, too.) The Arizona native got her break on the 2006 season of So You Think You can Dance and from there went on to dance back up with Beyonce on concert tour “The Beyonce Experience,” the Grammy Awards, SNL, and the American Music Awards. Here, Morris talks to us about Brittany, Britney and her cat, Zack Morris.
Have you ever been bullied?
Nothing like some of the stories Chris Colfer tells me about his youth. Though I do remember my freshman year when my father passed, I stopped wearing make up, stopped fixing my hair, and didn’t care what I looked like. I wore sweats everyday. After a while, the girls started getting really catty. People never really bullied me during this time, but they would judge me and talk about me behind my back, and that can be just as tormenting to a teen.
