Glee ‘s Harry Shum Jr. Receives the 2013 EuroCinema Hawaii Rising Star Award   |   Written by Mylen Fe Yamamoto

Eat your heart out Mike Chang fans from Hawaii because Harry Shum Jr. from the Fox television hit Glee is in Honolulu to receive the 2013 EuroCinema Rising Star Award.

Being a huge Gleek myself, I was thrilled to hear that he was flying out to islands and was able to catch an interview before his flight. Guess what? Harry’s a fan of Hawaii — probably as much as I’m a fan of Glee.

So Harry, what is it that you love about Hawaii?

The beaches and feeling one with nature. I remember this one time I was riding on scooters with a bunch of friends around the island. We got to this one spot and parked. To the left was the beach and to the right were the mountains. All of us didn’t say a word but I know we were all thinking the same thing — right there in that moment, it felt like a piece of heaven.

What about your favorite food?

[Without hesitation] Hawaiian-style poke from Ono Seafood. I had the tako poke like three times in one day. Oh! And Bubbies.

You’re making me miss home right now. Could you share some of your upcoming projects?

I play a baby daddy in a movie called Mom’s Night Out that’s premiering on Mother’s Day. Also finished shooting Revenge of the Green Dragons, produced by Martin Scorsese, and the Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 web series.

What type of work would interest you in Hawaii?

No work. Last thing I want to think of in Hawaii is work… [pauses]… sell coconuts on the side of the street.

[Laughs] Do you know our state fish?


It’s the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a. Please repeat.

Apa’a? Humamuama… humukunupua’a… can I just say the humu?

[After a few practices]


Beautiful! Anything else you’d like to add?

Hawaii’s a state where people’s eyes light up when you say “Hawaii.” I’m thankful and looking forward to have the opportunity to go out there.

Congratulations, Harry on receiving the 2013 EuroCinema Hawaii Rising Star Award! Hope you’re enjoying “a piece of heaven.” Wishing you continued success.
