Ice Dancing Olympians Talk 'Downton' & 'DWTS'
February 25, 2014
After winning gold medals for their dazzling ice-dancing routine at the Sochi Winter Games, Olympians Meryl Davis and Charlie White are now opening up about their connection to Dancing with the Stars and a possible future invitation to join the cast!
Meryl spoke with Olympics reporter Charley Cullen Walters about the duo's choreography collaboration with Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough. "Part of why we love him so much is just his zest for life, his ability to enjoy dancing and enjoy every moment that presents itself for him -- so his excitement for us is really cool."
When asked about possibly switching from the ice to the ballroom to appear on a season of Dancing with the Stars, Charlie said he would definitely be game. "Absolutely. We were talking about it and someone said, 'But you wouldn't be a team," and we were like, 'I don't know, it might actually be fun to compete against each other.'"
