HAIRSPRAY actress NIKKI BLONSKY dreamed of appearing on the big screen while working as a ice-cream server. The 18-year-old makes her Hollywood debut in the movie alongside John Travolta in the latest adaptation of the kitsch musical - but last year (06) Blonsky was serving ice cream treats to the people of New York. She says, "A year ago I was scooping ice cream in New York. Friends told me about the audition, so I went along and got the part!"
