Nikki Blonsky Gets 'Huge' Break

Nikki Blonsky Gets 'Huge' Break

Hairspray starlet Nikki Blonsky is breaking into television on ABC Family’s Huge.

The 20-year-old actress will play Willamina, a teen whose sardonic and rebellious nature make her a menace to some and revolutionary to others. Andrew Caldwell, Zander Eckhouse, Harvey Guillen, Ari Stidham, Ashley Holliday and Hayley Hasselhoff also star in the series.

The series, which is based off of Sasha Paley‘s book of the same name, is set to premiere on the network in summer 2010.

Huge is about the lives of seven teens and the staff at a weight-loss camp, as they look beneath the surface to discover their true selves and the truth about each other.

  • kgg

    Relax, everyone, I’m sure she’s “talented” since it’s taken her 4 plus years to get a “break”….and I’m sure she’s”over” Zac even though she still talks about him and her blog still thinks they’ll get together . Yeah, right, if you believe that is the truth, I have a bridge in New York City that I’d like to sell you. *rolls eyes*
