Francia, 21, reprises her role as Alexandra “Alex” Delgado in the film franchise, whose figure skating career came to an abrupt halt after her partner (on and off the ice) became injured. As their love affair cooled, a heart-broken Alex stopped competing and turned to teaching. Enter James McKinsey (Fehr), the smoldering bad boy of speed skating, who has had fiery Alex in his sights as a skating partner ever since he was banned from speed skating. There arenâ€™t many girls who say no to James â€“ Alex may well be the first.
However, James pushes her buttons, challenging her like no one else â€“ and her fighting spirit returns. She agrees to be his partner and they begin a grueling practice regimen fueled (and occasionally derailed) by their own tempestuous relationship which heats up as they get closer to competition. But will their passion destroy Alex’s chance to bring home the gold again?
The Cutting Edge: Fire & Ice premieres Sunday, March 14 @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
