Blake's dad, Ernie, also plays Bridget's (Blake) dad in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants."
Mike Vogel (Eric Richman in "Sisterhood") used to tease Blake offset in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" because she likes Britney Spears. Also like most teenagers, Blake loves going to Disneyland! Her long hair in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are actually extentions, but she loved them so much that she kept them.
