6 Male TV Actors Who Were Nervous AF Before Their Same-Sex Kissing Scenes
Sometimes boys like kissing boys and girls like kissing girls — there’s absoutely nothing wrong or weird about that!! While society has come a long way in supporting equality for the LGBTQ+, the small screen also does its part to promote diversity. You can catch at LEAST one same-sex smooch on lots of popular TV shows, including Glee, Pretty Little Liars, Shadowhunters and more.
While fans absolutely LOVE seeing their fave queer characters finally get together on a television series, the actors who portray them sometimes aren’t as pumped…at least at first. Some straight male celebs were nervous because they never kissed a guy before, and some gay stars were equally as hesitant to smooch a member of the same sex. Read on to see which TV guys got the jitters before filming makeout scenes.
Chris Colfer and Darren Criss played one of FOX's most lovable couples (#Klaine, duh) on Glee. While the boys seemed 100 percent comfortable with each other on screen, they were actually quite nervous before they started filming kissing scenes.
The 27-year-old explained, "Ryan Murphy came up to Darren and I and told us what the next episode was going to be about, and I think both of our eyes got really, really wide and we were like, 'Huh? What? Really?' And of course I always freak out and panic about storylines that they tell me are coming up because I always think it's going to be raunchy and over the top, but those situations are always handled so well and sensitively and emotionally, and this was no exception."
We totally agree, Chris!
