DANCING WITH THE STARS’ Gleb Savchenko Scores First Acting Role

By Movieguide® Contributor

DANCING WITH THE STARS pro Gleb Savchenko just scored his first movie role in the upcoming Great American Family movie SWING INTO ROMANCE. 

“Grateful and Thrilled to Embark on My Acting Journey!” Savchenko captioned a series of photos from the production. “Excited to announce my first role in a movie and can’t wait to bring this character to life of Alex Ivanov. Working hard, pushing boundaries, and embracing every moment.”

He singled co-star Danica McKellar out “for believing in me and guiding me through this incredible experience and also being an amazing dance partner.”

“It’s all about teamwork!” Savchenko concluded. “Feeling blessed and ready to shine on the big screen!”

McKellar also posted about the movie and what it was like to act alongside Savchenko. 

“It was SUCH a joy to relive the thrill of my time on DANCING WITH THE STARS with the incredible Gleb Savchenko,” the actress wrote. “The really cool and unique part was that we were mentors to each other: Not only did he mentor me in dance, but this was first acting role, so I had the great pleasure to mentor him in acting! We would alternate between dance rehearsals and acting rehearsals over the weekends. He was like a sponge with everything I taught him and did a terrific job playing my ex-fiancé and ex-dance partner – you’d never know it was his first acting job. And dancing with him is some of the most fun I have ever had on a movie set!”

An official synopsis of SWING INTO ROMANCE reads, “When former dancer Christine Sims (McKellar) temporarily returns to her hometown in time for the town’s Fall Festival, she discovers her family’s General Store is in trouble. In her efforts to save the business, Christine will need to dust off those dancing shoes one more time, face her ex-fiancé, and maybe even find love.”
