  • Brittany S. Pierce is een fictief personage van de Amerikaanse televisieserie Glee van Fox Broadcasting Company, gespeeld door Heather Morris. Ze is een van de leden van de fictieve Glee Club en de feitelijk bestaande Glee Cast. Brittany is voor het eerst verschenen in de tweede aflevering van Glee, "Showmance". Het personage is bedacht door Glee bedenkers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, en Ian Brennan. Brittany is een cheerleader in het William McKinley High Cheerleeder team, de "Cheerios" genaamd, en lid van het schoolkoor (de Glee Club) onder leiding van Will Schuester. Morris was oorspronkelijk ingehuurd om de dans van Beyonce's "Single Ladies" aan de Glee cast te leren. De show was op dat moment op zoek naar een derde cheerleader, en Morris werd gecast voor de rol. In het eerste seizoen was Brittany een bijrol, en pas in het tweede seizoen kreeg ze een grotere verhaallijn en solo's toegewezen. Morris speelt Brittany als "letterlijk krankzinnig", maar ook heel goedhartig en ze bedoelt alles goed. Morris zelf zegt dat Brittany "van iedereen houdt, ongeacht wie ze zijn'. Ze glimlacht vaak en is aardig voor de mensen. Brittany's karaktereigenschappen zijn onder andere dat ze recepten moeilijk kan begrijpen, denkt dat haar kat, Lord Tubbingtonn, haar dagboek leest, en dat ze haar rechter- en linkerhand niet uit elkaar kan houden. Deze feiten worden vaak weergegeven in oneliners van Brittany, waarvan ze een groot deel zelf heeft bedacht. Brittany's one-liners worden regelmatig besproken in beoordelingen over Glee. Morris zelf stelt dat "Brittany wordt gebruikt door de schrijvers van de serie om dingen te laten zeggen die geen van de andere personages zou zeggen". Het personage heeft ook positieve recensies over haar romantische verhaallijn met beste vriendin Santana (Naya Rivera). Brittany zelf is schaamteloos biseksueel terwijl Santana moeite heeft met het accepteren van haar lesbianisme. Brittany bleef Santana altijd steunen en drong erop aan dat ze eerlijk tegen zichzelf moet zijn. (nl)

Morris was upgraded to a series regular in the series' second season, in which Brittany is given a larger storyline, solos and dance routines to perform. Morris plays Brittany as "literally insane", but also entirely well-meaning and goodhearted. She has said that Brittany "love[s] everybody, no matter who they are"; she is frequently smiling and being nice to people. Brittany's character traits include her finding recipes confusing, cheating off intellectually disabled classmates, thinking her cat, Lord Tubbington, is reading her diary, and not knowing her right hand from her left. These facts are often presented in one-liners delivered by Morris, many of which she has ad-libbed. Brittany's one-liners are regularly celebrated in reviews of Glee. The character's lack of intelligence and forthright manner of speaking means, as Morris puts it, that "Brittany is used by the series' writers to say things no other character would". The character has also received positive reviews related to her romantic storyline with her closeted best friend Santana (Naya Rivera). While Brittany is bisexual, and is unashamed of that, Santana has trouble accepting her lesbianism. Brittany has continued to support Santana and urged her to be true to herself. The character has been received favorably with television critics. Jarrett Wieselman of the New York Post has compared Morris as Brittany to Lynch as Sue, and has opined that she has "emerged as one of the funniest second bananas on TV right now". Wieselman wrote that since her introduction, Brittany has been given "more and more to do [and] less and less to think", and that the result has been "one of the most clueless characters that's ever figured out how to dress herself in the morning." Snarker called Brittany and Santana her "new favourite Glee pairing", and commented: "While Heather Morris (Brittany) and Naya Rivera (Santana) have had minimal screen time, they’ve made it count. Heather in particular has brought the laughs as the Cheerio least likely to get a Mensa invitation." Brittany has attracted comparison to Amanda Seyfried's character from the 2004 hit teen comedy Mean Girls. Morris also receives acclaim for her dancing and her portrayal as Brittany. (en)
