Charice describes her role in Glee as "very, very Charice"

Filipina singer Charice (lower left frame) gets to sing and act opposite Glee stars (from upper left, clockwise) Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron and Naya Rivera.

Charice joined the cast members of Glee Season 2 during the show's premiere party held last September 7 at the Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, California. The Filipina singer who is best known for her chart-topping single "Pyramid," portrays Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student from the Philippines with a powerful voice.

"Sunshine is very, very Charice," says the international pop star in an interview with FOX. "She's simple and shy. Sunshine Corazon is a very amazing character and I can just relate to her."

Her character in Glee wears horn-rimmed glasses and in the promotional video of the show, she wears her hair in pigtails. In this same trailer, Charice is shown having a "singing catfight" scene with Lea Michele, who plays the ambitious leader of the New Directions glee club.

"Lea Michele and I shot a scene together...we're like 'frenemies' this season. I'm the rival of Rachel Berry [Lea's character] and we're gonna be singing a big song from Lady Gaga and Beyoncé titled 'Telephone.'"
