HUGE’s Nikki Blonsky on her New Character: ‘She’s like nothing I’ve ever played before’

June 28, 2010 by  

The world is already familiar with HAIRSPRAY star Nikki Blonsky. But in her new ABC Family series, HUGE — which follows a bunch of kids at a summer weight loss camp — we’ll be seeing a whole other side of the actress. I mean, first of all, she’s doing a striptease, so definitely tune in for that. But there’s more to it.

GIVE ME MY REMOTE got some quality time with Blonsky, who was cool enough to fill us in…

Describe your character, Will, for us…
Nikki Blonsky:
My character is amazing. Her music is her world, she always has her CD player, not an iPod because I think she truly respects music and wants the artists to get paid! She wears all boys clothes. She has blue hair. She’s totally against the grain, you know? She’s like nothing I’ve ever played before. That’s what I love about her. She’s so fresh and so clean for me. And she’s so witty and so quick.

And she’s tough chick, no?
Yes. She finds it hard to trust people, because of what her parents have done to her, sending her away and telling her she has to come back looking like something else. But she’s totally confident, anyway. She just struts her stuff and has her own way of thinking and her own way of talking. She keeps all of her emotional stuff inside. She keeps a lot of stuff internal and never really breaks on the outside and that’s what’s fun for me, because I’m so used to playing characters that do show emotion.

But as the season progresses, some of her issues must start to surface, yes?
Oh, yeah. You’ll definitely get a chance to see her come out. Certain things trigger her emotions. Absolutely.

Certain things, huh? Such as…
Well, she definitely gets a little heartbroken at one point. You know, she doesn’t get what she wants with a guy that she kind of likes, so it’s kind of rough for her.

Ugh, that’s the worst.
(Laughs) Tell me about it!

HUGE premieres Monday, June 28 at 9 p.m. on ABC Family
