    Ronan. She played a Russia figure skating diva who gets publicly assassinated due to her mob boyfriend's dirty dealings.

    I stand corrected. I remembered there was something Russian connected, and I recall her wearing a gymnast type leotard in one scene.

    You're right, she was wearing a leotard when she was training by bouncing around on a trampoline, complaining that there was no ice handy.

    I know that I saw Sasha Cohen in an episode of Las Vegas as herself. I actually don't watch the show, but I just happened to turn the channel over at the time when I saw her on the show.
    I was a huge Las Vegas fan until the writers ruined it, but I was still watching at the point that Sasha made her appearance. It was in one of the episodes towards the end of season 3, so it would have been Spring 2006 in the US.

    Christine Hough and Doug Ladret were also in The Cutting Edge, playing Smilkov and Brushkin.

    How did I forget that? I thought their names were Smirnova & Bushkin, but imdb lists them as Smilkov (should be Smilkova for a Russian lady) and Brushkin.

    I forgot to mention- Jo Jo Starbuck appeared in the same movie as an interviewer.

    Also Sharon Carz (sp?) doubled for Moira Kelly in that movie in some skating scenes.

    I copy/pasted the names from IMDB, but who knows if they actually have it right. It's sort of wikipedia-esqe on accuracy at time.

    They have a ton of stunt people listed, but other than Hough/Ladret, I didn't recognize any of the names. Someone else might though.

    ETA: Didn't Oksana Baiul have a bit part as a commentator in one of the awful, atrocious sequels that aired on ABC Family? I think she was supposed to be, but I'm not entirely sure since I didn't even make it halfway through before I turned it off.

    I remember Sharon Carz. She was a pairs skater with Doug Williams. They medaled at US Nationals one year, I think around 1990, and went to Worlds.

    I remember them. I think they had one gorgeous throw- either 2A or 3S (I can't remember).

    I may still have them on a tape.

    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.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    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.
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

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