Glee character Artie is set to have his heart broken after a love rival steals his girlfriend.

Harry Shum Jr, who plays dancer Mike Chang, has revealed he will lure Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) away from her wheelchair-bound boyfriend.

"I am the heartbreaker - Mike Chang comes in and swoops Artie's girlfriend Tina away and they sort of have an 'opposites attract' relationship," the 28-year-old said during a break from filming the show in Hollywood.

"She's very different [from him]. She's in that Goth mode with blue streaks, she loves different things. Mike loves dancing and is on the football team. So it's really fun to see that dynamic and see how the fans react when you take Mr Artie's girlfriend away."

Harry, who played more of a background part in the first series, said he was looking forward to discovering his character's role in the second season, which starts on E4 on January 10.

"You go through a whole season and you work hard and try and get noticed and, for the second season, you get excited for the potential of what's to come. It's really funny how they introduce my character so hopefully people will enjoy what Mike Chang's all about," he added.

Jenna said working with Harry and Kevin McHale, who plays Artie, was a lot of fun.

She added: "Ahhh the love triangle, kind of! Artie wasn't a good boyfriend to Tina, so she found a love with Mike Chang - he has good abs!"

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
