Hairspray Live's Maddie Baillio Talks Kissing Co-Star Garrett Clayton!

The big night is around the corner and Maddie Baillio could not be more excited. But Hairspray Live!‘s Tracy Turnblad is doing her best to shake off her nerves associated with the fact that she’ll soon be performing in front of her biggest audience yet.

“My wig fell off one time during rehearsal. Hopefully that doesn’t happen the night of,” she told JJJ.

But if it does, the show must go on. “I should probably come up with a quick one-liner if that happens. I gotta pin it into my brain,” she added.

Her character’s hairpiece is heavy but fortunately she is able to tune it out when the stage lights turn on. “When I’m not in character I’m not thinking about it,” Maddie said.

She is, however, thinking about is her many romantic scenes that she’ll have to act out on stage. “I have four kissing scenes with Garrett Clayton, which is a lot!” she said. “I think in the 2007 movie there is just one. Oh yeah. Thumbs up. We’re going all for it.”

Hairspray Live! airs on Wednesday, December 7 @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.
