In the first season of Glee, we saw Heather Morris' Brittany evolve from a bit player with a few crazy lines to a genuine cast member with a real audience following.

Still at the start of the second season, Heather is getting her break-out moment in tonight's episode, appropriately titled "Britney/Brittany." The show's newest star told New York magazine's Vulture blog that she knew she'd be getting a big role after producer and creator Ryan Murphy pulled her aside while she and the other cast members were on tour this summer.

"Ryan pulled me aside and told me they were doing this episode and that the title would be 'Britney/Brittany,' but he said, 'No one knows about this, so shhh — we’re gonna keep it a secret till you guys get the script.'"

Heather says Ryan asked her to take some vocal lessons, but really the long-time Britney fan has been ready for this since she was 11.

"I was like, 'Done. I already know it all!' It’s really not very hard, the stuff I got to do, but I was of course super-nervous. (...) It’s sort of weird to say Britney was my idol growing up — I was 11 or 12 when 'Baby … One More Time' came out."

Heather also confirms that in one scene, she and Britney will copy her video with Madonna for "Me Against the Music." Fans already saw this one coming after Britney herself posted a picture to Twitter showing her and Heather in the familiar costumes. In anticipation of Tuesday night's episode, Britney took to Twitter once again to post a picture of Heather wearing her "Toxic" costume (pictured inset above).

For Glee fans out there, Heather says writers will continue to develop her character this season and pretty soon her friendship with Santana (Naya Rivera) will start to change, she said.

"We’ve been so connected and in love, per se, like best friends, and not that there’s gonna be twists and turns, but you’ll see it start to change a little bit in the fourth or fifth episodes."
