Tanja played "Diana" in Alles was Zahlt, a fairly far-fetched daytime German soap (which for some reason I am totally addicted to :scream: ) Funnily enough, Diana was an ice skater in the show, and becomes World champion! LOL. There are quite a few clips of Tanja skating and jumping. She left in about 2010 I believe. Tanja is a policewoman in "real life" now?! Random.

No, Tanja is a police woman in a TV-Series. The name of it is "Ein Fall fr die Arnheimer". As much as Im a fan of Tanja, I never watched it. Her daughter Jona also had or has a role in this series. BTW, I cried hundreds of tears when she became world champion in "Alles was zhlt" because she skated to her "Speed"-LP as she did in the 1997/1998 season. It was soooo great to see her skate it again! She nearly had all the jumps by that time again. Shes still skating singles and pairs with Norman Jeschke... Would be sooo great to see her live on the ice again!

^ahh, she PLAYS a policewoman! That makes more sense :lol:

Keep it quiet, but I also got a bit misty-eyed when she won :o and I agree, her skating actually looks really good!

An old one: Eugene Turner (U.S. Champion 1940-41) was Cary Grant's skating double in the original version of The Bishop's Wife. Turner never got to complete in an Olympics because they were cancelled during WWII.

No video with English subtitles but i found short summary of "My hot ice/Moy Zharkiy Led'/all 100 episodes/ and if you run it through google translate you 'll get an idea about what is is going on.


and you can watch some of the episodes :

Thank you very much lavenderblue. I figured it was a Canadian team but they never got close enough to show any facial features, of course.

Brian Boitano also appeared as Michelle's co-commentator in that movie.

I just noticed that Alexandra Najarro is listed in that movie as one of the "Snowplow Sam" kids. I don't know if it is the same Alexandra, but it could be. Ice Princess was filmed in 2004, and she was born in 1993. That would make her about 11 at the time of filming. The movie was also recorded in the Toronto area. Also in the movie were Juliana Cannarozzo and Kirsten Olsen. I assume we are not counting the doubles such as Jennifer Robinson etc.

Oksana Baiul appeared as a commentator on "The Cutting Edge (2): Going for the Gold".

Sasha Cohen had one acting role as a mean girl in a movie called "Moondance Alexander". The movie was related to Equestrian Horseback Jumping, not Figure Skating.

Kristi Yamaguchi appeared as herself in a movie called "Go Figure".

The movie Moondance Alexander (with Sasha Cohen in it) is currently available on Starz On Demand. At least through Comcast right now. It's available until 5/31

Just remembered another one: Oksana Baiul had a guest role in some series called "Strong Medicine", where she played a figure skater who had epilepsy, and chose to go against her doctor's orders as his prescribed medicine would have upset her Olympic goals. Wasn't the best acting performance by her, but die-hard fans enjoyed it.

Not only that but she was a lesbian whose partner supported her decision to put her health in danger because she was having an affair with Oksana's rival and they plotted to make sure Oksana would be out of the Olympics.
