You can file Blonsky's next gig in the column "underrated shows that didn't get the fanfare they deserved." ABC Family debuted a series in 2010 titled Huge, which was based on the Sasha Paley novel about teens at a summer weight-loss camp.
Blonsky brought to life Willamena Rader (aka "Will") a snarky and sometimes troubled repeat attender. Admittedly, the role was a departure for Blonsky. "Coming from Hairspray and playing Tracy Turnblad, who's so perky and so up and bubbly and dancing and singing all the time, to playing Will, who's totally on the other side. She doesn't want to make friends, whereas Tracy wanted to bring the world together," Blonsky told Seventeen, gushing about her new character.
"Will is awesome. She's a lot of fun to play," Blonsky continued. "She is totally against the grain, she does not follow in anyone else's footsteps, she is purely her own person. She has blue hair, she wears boys' clothes, she doesn't listen to anybody, and she doesn't apologize for it. And that's what I think is so cool about her." Sadly, this smart and salient show never made it past its freshman season.
