Biography

Actor, dancer, and choreographer, Harry Shum Jr. was born in Costa Rica to Chinese parents, before moving to the U.S. as a boy. He had a role in the 2004 cult hit "You Got Served" and made appearances in other dance-themed films such as '07's "Stomp the Yard", but it was as student Mike Chang on the mega-hit "Glee" that he found stardom in a role that allowed Shum to show off his acting and singing abilities, as well as his dancing. He has also co-directed an acclaimed short film and worked as choreographer and actor on the action/musical show "The LXD: The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers".
