Whatever happened to Nikki Blonsky?

Well, if we base it on Wikipedia or IMDB, not much in the last few years.

Too bad. I do think she was perfectly cast (a complete newbie) in the movie adaptation of what is perhaps my favorite musical, Hairspray. She’s since had a few appearances here and there, and I read that she’s also performed on cruise ships, but over-all I guess her career had never really taken off.

She’s a talented singer, though to be fair she’s a so-so actress, and perhaps that’s the reason for her lukewarm career. Then again, she seems trainable; perhaps she could’ve tried Broadway?

In any case, I do hope she’s out there, somewhere, still singing.

Happy birthday, Tracy Turnblad!
