Nov 23, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The 51 year old actress Sean Young might have a background in ballet, for which everyone expected her to make a mark on the premiere episode of “Skating with The Stars”, which was aired yesterday on ABC at 8:00 PM. However, her performance was quite average, as compared to the other participants of the show.
The ace actress scored only 34 with her 32-year-old partner Denis Petukhov. He got the fourth position in the show. Sean Young has made her mark as an actress in films like “Blade Runner”, “Dune”, “Stripes”, “No Way Out” and “Wall Street”. Her television series includes one of the most popular shows, “The Young and the Restless.” This is for the first time that the actress has participated in a reality show, and that too an ice dance competition, which requires a lot of stamina, skills and patience. It was thought to be exciting to see the veteran actress perform with the tunes on her own pair of steel shoes. However, after the performance people were more overwhelmed with the performance of Rebecca Budig and her partner Fred Palascak, who scored 45 to gain the first position.
This show is being judged by Johnny Weir, Laurie Ann Gibson and Dick Button, who are regarded as three of the best skaters in America. Vernon Kay is the host of the show, who is being accompanied by retired Ice Dancer Tanith Belbin. “Skating With The Stars” is the American version of the British show, “Dancing on Ice”. It has been scheduled for six weeks, where every week one of the contestants will be eliminated on the basis of lowest combined judges points and viewer votes. Sean Young seems to be safe this week.
