Heather Morris Wiki Biography

Heather Morris was born in Thousand Oaks, California USA, on 1 February 1987, so under the zodiac sign of Aquarius and holding American nationality – she is popular for her career as an actress, especially for her role of Brittany S. Pierce in the “Glee” comedy drama TV series.

Childhood and education

Heather didn’t spend much time in California, as her parents moved to Scottsdale in Arizona soon after she was born – she hasn’t talked much about them as she prefers to keep them away from the media’s attention. Heather hasn’t mentioned having any siblings either, which is why she is considered to be an only child. She started taking dancing classes at the age of nine, and was competing in several dancing styles such as jazz and contemporary. Her father died from cancer when she was 14 years old, and Heather took a break from dancing but eventually came back to it.

A post shared by Heather Morris (@heatherrelizabethh) on

Heather attended Desert Mountain High school, and after matriculation enrolled at a university, but later quit and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming an actress.

Career of an actress and a dancer

Heather rose to prominence after she appeared in the second season of “So You Think you Can Dance” TV show in 2006 – while she passed the first contest, she didn’t make it to the final 20. She didn’t let this stop her from becoming a professional dancer, and she became a backup dancer for Beyonce during “The Beyonce Experience” world tour – she continued working for her, and was part of her “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” promotional tour in 2008. Heather’s first movie role was in “Fired Up” in 2008, when she was introduced to famous choreographer Zach Woodlee – Woodlee later put Heather to dance in many TV series he was the choreographer for, including “Eli Stone” and “Swingtown” among others.

Heather landed the role of Brittany in “Glee” in 2009 – the show needed a new cheerleader ,and Heather seemed the perfect choice. While Brittany wasn’t supposed to be much of a talker, the writers of the show saw Heather’s potential, and expanded her character. She gained much more recognition after Brittany slept with Santana Lopez, and the two started going out together – she went on to sing and dance in numerous episodes and eventually became part of the main cast.

The most popular female actresses of today

Ever since the launch of the film industry, the world has seen numerous actors and actresses – but some say that today’s actresses are the best in the history of film, and are often better than their male partners. The Ranker website has compiled a list of the most popular female actresses of today, and we are going to mention five of them:

Posted by Kate Winslet on Thursday, August 8, 2019

  • Fifth place is held by Kate Winslet – Kate is an English actress best known for her roles in the “Titanic” movie shot in 1997, which was then the highest grossing film of all-time, and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, in which she starred alongside Jim Carrey;
  • Julianne Moore is in fourth place, and is also a children’s author – she is popular for her appearances in “The Big Lebowski” in 1998, “Children of Men” in 2006, and “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” shot in 2017;
  • Dame Helen Lydia Mirren is holding third place – her career was launched in 1967 when she began performing with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and she is popular for her roles in “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover” movie shot in 1989 and “The Leisure Seeker” shot in 2017;
  • In second place is Meryl Streep, who is considered to be the best actress of her generation – she is popular for her roles in “Kramer vs. Kramer” shot in 1979, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” shot in 1981, and “Florence Foster Jenkins” shot in 2016;
  • Top place goes to Cate Blanchett who is also a theatre director – she has received two Academy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and three BAFTA Awards. She is popular for her roles in “Elizabeth” (1998), “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “The Hobbit” trilogy, and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” shot in 2008.

While Heather is an actress with amazing skills, she is nowhere to be found in the list of the most popular female actresses in the world, compiled by The Ranker website.

Heather’s other works and accolades

In December 2010, Heather became the celebrity style ambassador of the “Flirt! Cosmetics” line – in the same year, she was #85 in the “Hot 100” list compiled by “Maxim” magazine, and #2 in the “Hot 100” list compiled by “AfterEllen”. She appeared in a “Back to School” commercial for Staples Canada in 2011, and was featured in the “Fitness” magazine.

Heather went on to compete in the24th season of “Dancing with the Stars” on 1 March 2017, however, people were not happy because she had dancing experience. She competed, nevertheless, partnered with professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy – even though the two were the first to receive a perfect score, they were eliminated on 24 April 2017.

Quotes

#Quote
1I try to eat how your mother wanted you to eat when you were young.
2I guess because I'm so young, I m not sure of what lies ahead for me. I'm more into going the route of producing and directing. I just made a little short film. I'm more excited about going the route of doing a Drew Barrymore or... what's the one from 'Star Wars?'
3I'm pretty gutsy. Dancers don't think about things; they just do them.
4I want to make everybody laugh.
5Me and my roommate wrote and directed a little short comedy called 'The Elevator.'
6You don't want to be too cool. But you don't want to be too dorky. Still, I find it so much better to see a guy at a club being a dork, and having fun, than trying to be sexy.
7My dad passed away before my freshman year, and it altered how I thought. I was depressed - I didn't hang out with my friends. I worked through it by dancing.
8There were ten dancers - four guys and six girls - including me, on the Beyonce tour. Sometimes we would go out with her, to events. She was really normal - just like everybody else!
9I've wanted to perform my entire life. I found a paper I wrote in kindergarten class about what I wanted to be when I grew up - and I wrote 'a famous singer!'
10The simplest way to do something cool is the cross-turn. Like in the '80s - Michael Jackson did it. You jump and cross your legs together at the same time, and then spin out of it. That's it.
11Beyonce was just always full-out. She's like a beast. So you learn that no matter how you feel, just do it. Just like Nike: 'Just Do It.'
12Dancing was my sport when I was younger. So I chose that over everything. And then, I just had to keep going because it became a competitive thing. But I'm not trying to impress anyone anymore. Dancing is more like my art, now.
