Kristy Swanson Hopes Ice Skating Show Gives Her Blades Of Glory

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The original Buffy the Vampire Slayer is now hoping to experience blades of glory.

Kristy Swanson, who played Buffy in the 1992 film version, is now participating in the new FOX series, Skating With Celebrities, which debuts Jan. 18.

Swanson is one of the skating celebs along with Bruce Jenner, Deborah Gibson and Todd Bridges, and she says the sport is harder than it looks.

In her words, “I had to learn all the skating tricks AND look like I’m enjoying myself.” Swanson admits she was “stiff and self-conscious at first” but now is proud of her ability to “tell a story” on ice.

Swanson doesn’t plan on giving up her day job as an actress but hopes to keep skating as much as possible.

In fact, she claims two of the show’s professional skaters – Nancy Kerrigan and Scott Hamilton – have already asked her to go on tour with them and she’s willing to consider it “if it will be good for them and fun to do.”
