Olympic figure skater Michael Martinez to appear in 'Hearts on Ice'

Michael Martinez is going to appear in upcoming Kapuso series "Hearts on Ice."

On Instagram, the two-time Olympian shared videos of him skating with "Hearts on Ice" stars Ashley Ortega and Roxie Smith.

Michael, who competes a singles skater, said he did a lift on the ice for the first time.

"Wow didn't know this was the first, isang karangalan to be the one carried haha!" said Roxie.

Michael also executed a lift with Ashley and they looked super good on the ice.

"Excited for our scenes!" Ashley said.

Michael represented the Philippines in the 2014 and 2018 Olympics. He is the first figure skater from Southeast Asia to qualify for the Winter Games.

Ashley, meanwhile, is an experienced figure skater. She returned to the ice last year after a four-year hiatus. 

"Hearts on Ice" also stars Xian Lim, who trained hard to learn figure skating at the age of 33. The actor bought his own skates and took a skating proficiency test, which he passed with flying colors.
