Actually, Vitamin C was in Hairspray, but she played Amber Von Tussle. She's listed in the credits as Colleen Fitzpatrick. If you don't believe me, check out her listing at IMBD: http://us.imdb.com/Name?Fitzpatrick,+Colleen+(I). As for Vitamin C not being old enough...well imdb has her listed as being 30 years old, however I've read a few articles that place her age at anywhere from 32 to 35.

Colleen Fitzpatrick is Vitamin C and is Amber. She was 18 when she made this film, as stated by Waters in his commentary of the movie on the Laser Disc version.

Umm...in case you didn't know, John Waters plays cameos in most of his movies...just like any other great director (Speilberg, Kubrick, Hitchcock, Kevin Smith) or writer (Stephen King, anyone?).

I saw something about Vitamin C and they said that she played the blonde girl: Penny Pingerton. The friend of Ricki Lake.

Hello! Hairspray was made too long ago for Vitamin C to be able to play someone that old. She's that old NOW!
