The 26-year-old Olympic gold medalist will be competing against ice dance partner Meryl Davis on the dance floor for the upcoming season.
Sharna told Wetpaint about partnering with Charlie: “I was grateful, excited — shocked isn’t the right word, maybe not surprised either. I didn’t expect it, that’s for sure. I heard that Charlie was going to be on, but I guess I just didn’t think I’d be lucky enough to get him. And he’s just so sweet, and so wonderful.”
She continued, “After speaking to him for five minutes I just thought, ‘Wow, it’s such a blessing to be able to work with such a wonderful, humble person who’s so ready to learn, a fantastic student with, of course, an abundance of talent.’”
Sharna also commented on the competition rivalry between Meryl and Charlie: “There’s always going to be a healthy rivalry, because they’re competitors, and that’s part of who they are. But I would say that Meryl would say she wants Charlie to win, and Charlie would say he wants Meryl to win.”
