Nikki Blonsky Bio/Wiki 2017

American actress and vocalist, Nikki Blonsky, has an estimated net worth of $500,000. Nikki Blonsky was still serving exclusives at Cold Stone Creamery when she received the news that altered her life forever. An aspiring actress who was once deemed too young to portray dancing Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad in the Broadway production of Hairspray, the then-17-year old NY Village High School pupil believed her shot at stardom had slipped away from the time a movie version of the hit musical was announced.

Instead, a keen-eyed New Line assistant brought Blonsky’s audition tape to the eye of producers responsible for the feature variation, and the remainder, as the saying goes, was history. A camera hit the road to get footage of the finalists for the movie role, and director Adam Shankman appeared at Cold Stone to tell Blonsky she’d landed her dream role. Born Nicole Margaret Blonsky on November 9, 1988 in Great Neck, ny, United States.

Nikki Blonsky is best known for her role as Tracy Turnblad in the 2007 film Hairspray and as Maggie Baker in the 2008 television movie Queen Sized. She is also known for her main role in the ABC Family original show Enormous.

Quotes

#Quote
1I'm thrilled beyond belief to be different in this business. I pray that there will be more roles for bigger girls. I pray that the role of the love interest, the beautiful, sexy girl, will be played by a plus-size woman.
2I grew up singing since the age of three. Vocally trained since the age of eight. Fascinated by Mary Poppins and all those musical movies and really knew that I wanted to be a performer.
