Heather Morris - Out Magazine

HeMo in Out Magazine:

Morris says both actresses hope to fully explore the relationship of "Brittana," as the sexually experimental duo was dubbed.

"We just shot a scene yesterday that I’m excited for the fans to see," she says. "People don’t want their relationship to be a joke. They want it to be real. It had an impact on people."

It was Morris’s willowy good looks coupled with her dazzling dance moves that took her from Scottsdale, Ariz., to begin touring the world as a backup dancer for Beyoncé, who jokingly referred to Morris as her "token white girl." Morris was later brought in by Glee’s choreographer to teach the cast how to perform their rendition of "Single Ladies" and was soon cast as one of the show’s Cheerios.

Brittany's signature non sequiturs ("Did you know that dolphins are just gay sharks?"), delivered by the acting newbie with the aplomb of Bill Murray, have earned her scores of followers. She admits, though, that it was another pop superstar who helped showcase the full range of her talents: Britney Spears, who made a guest appearance last fall in the episode "Britney/Brittany." When Morris belted out "I’m a Slave 4 U" while gyrating in Spears’s slinky costumes -- complete with a huge yellow python -- her character fully came to life.

"That episode was a game-changer," Morris says. "People didn’t just think about Brittany. People wanted to know who I was."
