Question: Please tell us anything you can about Tina’s role on Glee this year! Jenna Ushkowitz is such an amazing talent. —Shannon
Ausiello: Tina will start out the season adjusting to her split from Mike, a break-up Ushkowitz says was of her character’s doing. “People are really going to hate me,” the actress predicts. “But it’s hard with long distance [relationships].” The ex-couple reconnect in Episode 5 for the first time since calling it quits. “It’s definitely going to be hard,” she teases of the reunion. “It’ll be a truthful and honest [depiction of] what people go through in a break-up.” Bonus Spoiler: Ushkowitz says Tina will perform two numbers in next week’s Britney Spears tribute, one of which is an acoustic-leaning cover of “3.”
Olivia: Kristin, I need your help! My Glee favorite is Mike Chang, so should I even bother watching next season? Will he be back? Thanks!
Good news, Olivia! And the adorable Harry Shum Jr. is here to deliver it. “I should be returning. Right now we’re finishing everything up and talking to the creators. I would love to come back and I think that’s going to happen,” he reveals to us. Five second dance party to celebrate! Ready? Go! And now back to Harry. “There’s still more to explore after the high school life,” he says. “It’s going to be a whole different world from dancing in high school and going to a performing arts school, it’s a whole other level. Hopefully you’ll see the level of dancing go up as well.” Now our next question is: Will he keep a long-distance relationship with Tina?
