Shannon Purser Told Us About Kissing Noah Centineo & It’s as Great as You Think!
Sierra Burgess is a Loser only came out a few days ago and we are already in love. Well, it doesn’t take long to fall in love when Noah Centineo is starring as a hot jock again. As if the 22-year-old actor, who plays sensitive quarterback Jamey in the new Netflix rom-com, wasn’t boyfriend goals enough as Peter Kavinsky, Shannon Purser told us he isn’t much different when the cameras aren’t rolling.
“From the very beginning, he was really supportive,” the 21-year-old actress says of her Sierra Burgess love interest. “He wanted to be the best acting partner I could have, and he is just as charming as you would expect him to be.”
So, what was filming the big kiss like? Since it was the Riverdale actress’ first on-screen smooch, we thought everyone would make the filming the most comfortable thing ever. But, when face to face with Noah, we figure that it’s easy to get flustered.
“I feel like I am scared enough by kissing as it is,” she admits, “but doing it on camera is definitely a new level of intimidation, but it was really good, actually. Noah was really nice and made sure that everything was okay with me before we did it and I think it worked out well.”
According to Shannon, the scene took a couple takes to film. Oh, what a hard day at the office.
“Our director really wanted to foster the anticipation and the nerves, so he wouldn’t let Noah and I speak to each other before the scene,” she explains. “It was a bit much but I think it got a real performance and you really got a grasp on how conflicted Sierra was feeling before that scene.”
We definitely think it all worked out in the end.
