ET spoke with Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky in New York City where the actress filmed a guest appearance on “Ugly Betty”.
Nikki confirms that director John Waters is currently working on a script for the next Hairspray and said she would be thrilled to once again be involved in the project, “All I have to say, on the record: I am so down… I am ready to play Tracy Turnblad again!”
Nikki also said a big draw of making another Hairspray would be the opportunity to possibly work again with John Travolta, who played the part of her character’s mother in the first film.

In her first interview since her arrest last month after an incident in a Turks and Caicos airport, Nikki Blonsky tells ET that she has had an outpouring of support from friends and family, including her “Hairspray” castmates, “They have all been extremely supportive.” Blonsky says co-star Zac Efron has been a special source of strength for her, “I love him with every inch of my body and soul. He has been an amazing support system.”
She goes on to say that her family is coping with the situation as best they can, “We are a tight-knit family. We’re just happy to be back together. My family is my life. The best gift that I’ve even been given is my parents.” On the media attention surrounding the incident in which her father Carl was also arrested, Blonsky says it’s difficult to see her family under scrutiny, “You want to protect them the best way you know how.”
Blonsky is currently preparing for a special performance at Feinstein’s in New York City that will run from September 23rd to October 4th.
