Nicole Margaret Blonsky is an American actress and singer. She 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 series Huge.

Nikki Blonsky, born in Great Neck, N.Y. was still serving scoops at Cold Stone Creamery when she received the news that would change 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 17-year-old New York Village High School student thought her shot at stardom had slipped away by the time a film version of the hit musical was announced. Instead, a keen-eyed New Line assistant brought Blonsky's audition tape to the attention of producers in charge of the feature adaptation, and the rest, as they say, was history. A camera hit the road to capture footage of the finalists for the film role, and director Adam Shankman appeared at Cold Stone to tell Blonsky she'd landed her dream role.

Though Blonsky had previously appeared in Great Neck productions of Hair and Alice in Wonderland, she was a virtual unknown at the time she was cast in the role originated by actress Ricki Lake back in 1988.
