A bit more about Morris .....
Heather grew up in Arizona and moved to Los Angeles after a year of college to start her dancing career. She traveled the world withBeyoncé as a dancer and, thereafter, decided to try being an actress. She began taking acting classes, continuing to dance works, including performances of Beyonce's Single Ladies, on shows like Saturday Night Live, Today and the American MusicAwards.
Beyoncé asked Heather to continue participating in the tour, but she refused because it was still determined to become an actress full time. The move paid off: Heather was hired to teach the Single Ladies choreography for the cast of Glee. The producers liked her so much that they hired to become the cheerleader Brittany Pierce.
She began dancing when she was just one year, having competedearly in a variety of styles including jazz, tap and contemporary.Heather has Scottish ancestry through his father's side, who died when she was 14.
Morris was taking acting classes and actively pursuing an acting career when she was asked by Woodlee to teach the choreography for Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" dance to the Glee actors. At the same time, the show was looking for a third cheerleader, and Morris ended up landing the role of Brittany. Initially a background character who hardly ever spoke, the role grew as writers discovered Morris had a gift for delivering one-liners.Jarrett Wieselman of the New York Post opined that Morris has "emerged as one of the funniestsecond bananas on TV right now" and the LA Times wrote of having a "...comedy crush on Morris, who plays the galactically dim Glee Club cheerleader Brittany".
When a promotional clip for the episode "Sectionals" indicated that Brittany Pierce and Santana Lopez had slept together, Dorothy Snarker, writing for lesbian entertainment website After Ellen, praised the pairing, referring to them by the portmanteau "Brittana".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 aMensa invitation. Never mind Finn and Rachel — I'm on Team Brittana now."
Morris' role became more prominent during the final nine episodes of season one, and due to the overwhelmingly positive response to her character, was promoted to official series regular status during season two. She was at the center of the second episode, "Britney/Brittany", (a tribute to Britney Spears) where she made her singing debut covering Spears' "I'm a Slave 4 U" solo and dueting with Naya Rivera on "Me Against the Music". The second half of season two saw Morris' character engage in a lesbian storyline with Rivera's character. Both the arc along with Rivera's and Morris' performances were met with critical acclaim. As on Glee, Morris is best friends in real life with co-star Rivera.
During the 2011 Glee Tour Heather performed Britney Spears' song "I'm a Slave 4 U". She also had a dance spotlight with castmateHarry Shum Jr. during Naya Rivera's performance of "Valerie," and was one of the dancers in the Single Ladies and Safety Dance numbers.
Morris co-wrote and appeared in a January 2011 video for Funny or Die, "Nuthin' But A Glee Thang," a take-off of the Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg collaboration "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang". Co-written with actresses Ashley Lendzion and Riki Lindhome, the video features appearances from Modern Family's Sofia Vergara and Morris's Glee castmates Matthew Morrison, Cory Monteith, Harry Shum, Jr., andNaya Rivera....
