Glee's Harry Shum Jr. Creates PSA for Immigrant Heritage Month! (Exclusive Video)

Harry Shum Jr. stars alongside his family in this new PSA for Immigrant Heritage Month, provided exclusively to JustJared.com!

The 33-year-old former Glee actor created the clip, entitled “Patacones with Chopsticks,” for Welcome.us. He is seen speaking with his parents and sisters about their origins, and moving from China to Costa Rica, and eventually to America.

“I learned much of the Spanish culture from my sisters,” Harry says in the video. “I think of myself as more Asian-American. It took the environment of being in America to know that it’s not too far to where I can go and perform. I take all of [my parents’] experiences and I feel the hardship, too. [They] made sure that we understood what it is to make a dollar. Without [my parents] moving from a hard place, knowing that it’s hard, I don’t think it would have been possible.”

Watch the video below and make sure to catch Harry in the upcoming ABC Family series Shadowhunters!
