We caught up with Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Cory Monteith and the rest of the cast at the 'Glee' premiere
Jenna Ushkowitz of FOX's 'Glee'
HitFix: Tell me some things about Tina that maybe aren't in the pilot...
Jenna Ushkowitz: Well, Tina finally gets a last name. It's Tina Cohen-Yang, so she's definitely got the Jewish-Asian mix. I'm sure we'll see that somewhere. I definitely think that you'll see a softer side of Tina. You'll see an intense side as well, but I think that there's a lot more behind this facade of blue makeup and blue hair.
HitFix: What's going on there?
JU: She's a pretty angry kid, but it all stems from an insecurity. I think it all comes from a place of just kinda hiding and I think you're going to see a softer side of her, coming out of her shell, that's OK to be who you are.
HitFix: And how does this show seem different from other high school TV shows?
JU: It's not about "Gossip Girls" and "The OCs" where these kids glamorous and perfect in every way. I think that we're the underdogs and the outcasts who will eventually find themselves, who they really are and know that's OK.
"Glee" premieres on Tuesday, May 19 on FOX and will return to FOX in the fall.
