Time to rejoice fellow Gleeks! Glee’s very own Harry Shum Jr. has been voted as this month’s cover boy!
Harry Shum Jr. may come from a Chinese background, but he was born in Costa Rica in April 28, 1982 and then moved to California, where he currently lives, when he was just six-years-old. That means he can speak Chinese, Spanish and English. That’s quite the mix!
A fun fact about Harry Shum Jr. is that he was featured in one of the very first iPod commercials.
The 30-year-old actor started out on Glee as a minor character in the high school glee club. His character, Mike Chang, had few lines at the beginning of the hit show.
However, he soon became more of a lead once his character began dating Tina Cohen – Chang, Jenna Ushkowitz, and he even went on to have a solo performance.
You might also recognize this hip-hop dancer from Step Up 2: The Streets …
… and Step Up 3D where he showcases New York street style dance moves.
On his website you will find a post dedicated to Michael Jackson and how Harry Shum Jr. found inspiration through his entertaining performances. Besides being a lead dancer for celebs like Beyonce and J.LO to name a few, singing and acting, he is also a choreographer. Is there anything he can’t do?
While we love our men and writing about them, we’ll be switching it up in the new year to celebrate the success of a female star each month. Your votes will determine our very first cover girl to bring in the new year!
Be sure to vote!!!
