Nicole "Nikki" Blonsky shot to stardom when she was cast as Tracy Turnblad in the 2007 movie Hairspray. Girls all over the world screamed with jealousy when the lucky Nikki got to kiss Zac Efron in the film, which also starred John Travolta and Christopher Walken as Tracy’s kooky parents.
Nikki is a role model for plus-size girls, starring in the television movie Queen Sized as well as the hit ABC Family Original Show "Huge", about a weight loss camp. She began work on her debut album in 2007, and her first single, "On a High" was featured in Queen Sized. We love Nikki’s message of the importance of being comfortable in your body, and we know there are big things to come for her!
