Oksana Baiul also appeared the movie about her life called "A promise kept". Bit of a tear jerker. Although the scene where she cut her leg made it look like she almost got her leg chopped off.

Blades of Glory is hilarious. Pity they didn't get Johnny Weir to appear it in. That would have been classic.

Just remembered that Scott Hamilton appeared in an episode of Roseanne where he did linoleum skating with Becky's husband. And Verne Linquist provided commentary. Very funny.

Dorothy Hamill was on Diff'rent Strokes as Kimberly's coach. Dana Plato who played Kimberly could do a spin and a loop jump but I remember she did them in opposite directions. Dorothy, who played herself, supposedly was so impressed with Kimberly's skating she planned to coach her to an Olympic medal. Kimberly decided training was too much work and faked an ankle injury to get out of it.

Tara also showed up on an episode of Early Edition. I remember how excited I was -- that was one of my favorite shows. :)

The OT was about skaters who appeared in movies, thread drift (that FSU affliction, oh dear!) morphed it into skaters who appeared in TV series, so here goes it: What Olympic Silver Medalist hosted Saturday Night Live, and made a field day with take-offs on "This is the corniest thing I've ever done".

Didn´t Tara had a main character in a movie? It was something with Angel in the title i think. The other main character was Nicholle Tom from "The Nanny". It was even shown on German TV!!! But I guess it was a made for TV movie, not for cinema. If that counts, then Tanja Szewczenko also played a main character in a German TV movie called "Kasachstan Lady". And she was in severall German TV soaps as a main character. Right now she´s a police woman...

I know this is a bit of a tangent, but Dorothy Hamill appeared as herself in an episode of Different Strokes. She played Kimberley Drummond's skating coach.
