Heather Elizabeth Morris (born 1st February 1987) is an American actress, dancer and singer best known for her role as Brittany in the musical comedy series Glee.


Early life

Heather Morris grew up in Arizona and started dancing when she was 1 year old.[1]


Morris moved to Los Angeles in 2006[1] and her first significant appearance was in So You Think You Can Dance Season 2.[2] In 2008 she appeared in single episodes of Swingtown and Eli Stone as an uncredited dancer and in 2009 Morris appeared in Fired Up as Fiona.

She went on to further success as a dancer in support of Beyoncé on her tour The Beyoncé Experience and when Beyoncé performed at the American Music Awards,[3] on Saturday Night Live,[4] and The Today Show[4] in 2008.

Morris was hired in 2009 to star as Brittany in the first season of Fox's musical comedy series Glee, about a high school glee club. She was brought in by the show initially to teach the choreography for Beyoncé's Single Ladies dance to the actors, however the show was looking for a third cheerleader and she got the job.[4] Jarrett Wieselman of the New York Post opined that Morris has "emerged as one of the funniest second bananas on TV right now".[5] When a promotional clip for the episode "Sectionals" indicated that Brittany and Santana had slept together, Dorothy Snarker, writing for lesbian entertainment website After Ellen, praised the pairing, referring to them by the portmanteau "Brittana".[6] Snarker called the two her "new favorite Glee pairing", commenting that: "While Heather Morris (Brittany) and Naya Rivera (Santana) have had minimal screen time, they’ve made it count. Heather in particular has brought the laughs as the Cheerio least likely to get a Mensa invitation. Never mind Finn and Rachel — I’m on Team Brittana now."[6]
