The clock is ticking! In just a few days, Skating with the Stars premieres on ABC, and actress Sean Young is busy getting ready to take to the ice. Read on to see what Young said about her experience training for the show, and who her biggest competition will be. The answer may surprise you.
Fifty-one-year-old actress Sean Young has been working overtime in preparation for the Skating of the Stars premiere on ABC.
“It’s a lot of hard work–the skating and learning how to skate,” Young told Access Hollywood in an interview.
“I’ve put on skates before, like when I was a kid…and then I had some time at a Culver City ice rink where my kids would like go ice skating on Saturdays, but that was really just like puttering around,” said Sean. “The last five weeks [of training for the show] have been very challenging and actually amazing fun. You have to have a kind of athletic personality for it and I do. I have a dance background, so I’m athletic and I learn quickly, which is lucky in this situation.”
So who does Young think her toughest competitor will be when the show begins?
“My biggest competition is within me,” reveals Sean. “It’s your own mental game. It’s like you wake up and you say, ‘I need to face this with a good attitude, I need to do my very best,’ and at the end of the day that’s the most important thing you need to accomplish because you can’t control all of the variables that you will face. You might be nervous that day, you might be in perfect condition that day, you just don’t know and that’s what competition is.”
But that’s not the only reason Sean’s not too concerned about her competitors. Before she joined SWTS, she hadn’t even heard of most of them (she’s not the only one!).
Young tells Access, “I didn’t know who Bethenny [Frankel] was before the show, but that’s because I don’t watch a lot of TV.”
You can get to know Young, Frankel, and the rest of the Skating with the Stars cast when the show premieres November 22 on ABC.
