Natalie was picked for the role of feisty Tinkerbell by the show's creative director and choreographer, champion ice skater and Olympic gold medallist Robin Cousins, who she met when she was just eight.
She said: "I have skated with Robin in the past. One of the boys whom I skated with when I was eight was his nephew and we competed together.
"We went to international competitions together. Tristan was always there, so Robin came out and visited him and we did training camps with him."
Years later, when Natalie was working on another ice show, Robin got back in touch with her to offer her the job of Tinkerbell.
She said: "I was working with another performing arts company and Robin emailed me and said: 'I've got this perfect job for you. Why don't you come on board?'
Ice Dance Fan!
Swooning for Romain Hagenauer, Andrew Poje & Ola Salo from The Ark.
It's in Edinburgh for 2 days as well...later this month. There was an ad on the radio saying if you book two adult tickets from £13, then two kids went free. Hmmmm.... I doubt I'll go though - have just bitten off more than I can chew regards finances.
