JJJ caught up with the two stars recently to chat about their new movie. Francia shared about the tricks she can still do on skates, saying, “When it came back to going on the ice, I was able to do the mechanics, but I did not even want to attempt to try to do the actual things. I was pretty much at the beginner level, still at the kiddie level, but I can do mechanics of some other stuff like, what was it Brendan, toe loops and axles.”
Brendan also dished about the level of difficulty going from playing hockey as a kid to a figure skating role, “The level of difficulty was pretty high and having absolutely no rhythm as well, as Francia can attest to, upped the stakes there for me. You do what you can. You work hard and you pointers and you get tips and you train and you do what you can. Then, the rest, you obviously leave up to editing and music and stunt doubles. But, you just have fun with it and you do the best you can with what you got and the time you have and then you hope the people in the editing room really like you and are interested in making you look good, which I think they actually did. I think I actually look like I know what Iâ€™m doing out there.”
The Cutting Edge: Fire & Ice airs SUNDAY @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
