Glee character: Brittany
Full name: Heather Elizabeth Morris
Date of birth: February 1, 1987
Hometown: Scottsdale, Arizona
Currently residing in: Los Angeles
Education: Desert Mountain High School
After moving to Los Angeles in 2006, Heather landed her first major role on Season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance. She later joined "The Beyonce Experience" tour as a backup dancer, which led to appearances on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the 2008 Grammy Awards with the pop diva. And if you want to go on a show that appreciates dance, there's no better place than The Ellen DeGeneres Show!
Random factoid: Heather nabbed her part on Glee after appearing on set to teach the actors the choreography for "Single Ladies." They happened to need a third cheerleader, so she signed on for the part. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!
