Heather Morris is the cover girl for the November issue of Seventeen. Inside the issue, the ‘Glee’ star opens up about losing her dad at 14 years old and how she dealt with the pain.
“It made me grow up in a different way,” she explains. “My mom and I are really close because of it, so I’m glad I have a good relationship with her, but I definitely went through a lot of phases.”
While the loss took quite an emotional toll on the star as a young teen, it helped her to zero her focuse in on dancing. She adds, “At times, I didn’t care at all and I went to school in my pajamas and I cried. But then I cut it out and I focused on my dancing. I was in dance class all the time.”
