Michelle Trachtenberg

When the offer for Ice Princess first came to Michelle Trachtenberg, “I was like, ‘Okay, I can ice skate, no problem. I did it at a party once,’ ” the actress says. But after a dislocated knee, a few torn ligaments and some intense workouts, the 19-year-old developed some real skills on the ice – even landing a single toe loop for her role as a math whiz who masters figure skating. Trachtenberg, who gained a following as Dawn on TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, recently talked about learning to love the ice, taking the fall and finding love off the rink.
