Spinning Out - Svetlana Efremova Joins Cast; Charlie Hewson to Recur in Netflix's Ice Skating Series



Svetlana Efremova (The Americans) and Charlie Hewson (Upload) have joined the cast of Netflix's Spinning Out, a drama series set in the world of competitive figure skating per Deadline.

Efremova will take on a series regular role whilst Hewson will recur in the series created by Samantha Stratton (Mr. Mercedes) who is a former competitive figure skater herself.

Spinning Out follows Kat Baker (Kaya Scodelario) is an up-and-coming, high-level single skater who's about to turn in her skates after a disastrous fall took her off the competition track. When Kat seizes an opportunity to continue her career as a pair skater with a talented bad-boy partner (Evan Roderick), she risks exposing a fiercely kept secret that could unravel her entire life. On and off the ice, Kat and her new partner will face daunting odds, injury to body and soul, financial sacrifice, and even potential mental breakdown on their way to realizing their Olympic dream.

Efremova will play Dasha Glushenko, the sharp-tongued Russian skating coach who rules over Justin and Kat with an iron fist. She believes in Justin's talent and will do anything to see him succeed. At first, she sees Kat as more of a business opportunity, but as the relationship progresses, she transforms into a kind of protective grandmother figure.

Hewson will play Dr. Parker, the super-charming and polished doctor that many of his young skating patients have a crush on.

Efremova and Hewson join previously announced cast Kaya Scodelario, Willow Shields, Evan Roderick, Johnny Weir, Sarah Wright Olsen, Will Kemp, Kaitlyn Leeb, Amanda Zhou, Mitchell Edwards and January Jones.
