Harry Shum, Jr: Shirtless for 'Da Man' Magazine
Here’s what the 29-year-old Glee star had to share:
On how many takes it took to get the “Valerie” performance right: “We were pretty confident with the movement and pretty pumped to do it over and over again. We had a real audience when we shot ‘Valerie,’ so we had the energy from the crowd to feed off of. Some of the lifts were pretty difficult, but I loved the song so much that there was always a burst of energy when the track came on.”
On whether he considers himself more of an actor or dancer: “I’m an actor and a dancer. I was an actor before I started dancing but that doesn’t mean I’m one less than the other. I have always viewed dancing as a form of acting, because when a dancer is dancing he should be telling a story through movement. There should be an emotion behind each motion, whether it’s light and happy or heavy and sad. I love all forms of art, so I wouldn’t limit myself to only one title.”
