Hey Ross Lynch and Kiernan Shipka shippers, we have the best news ever! You might want to brace yourselves because the actor just revealed that he and his costar actually kissed 30 times a day while filming Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. OMG… What?
As fans know, Ross and Kiernan play Harvey and Sabrina in the Netflix original series. And although they unfortunately split at the end of Season 1, their characters were pretty much couple goals throughout the entire first season. We mean, you could literally feel their love and their passion, especially during those steamy kiss scenes. Well guys, it turns out, it took a lot of practice to get them perfect.
“Me and Kiernan, on the first season, one day on set we’d kiss probably 30 times a day. It was crazy,” Ross, 23, shared with Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. “That’s just how filming works, you know, take after take after take you’re just smooching. What a job, right? It’s great.”
And because they kissed so many times on set it was hard for the actor to remember the exact moment they shared their first kiss. But for Gavin Leatherwood (he plays Nick Scratch, Sabrina’s new love interest), he remembers his first kiss with Kiernan like it was yesterday.
“Before we filmed our first kissing scene I was incredibly nervous,” he recalled. “I rode in that day and I was talking to Brad, one of our transport guys. I was like, ‘Man, big day today. We’re filming this, and this and I got a kissing scene with Kiernan.’ And he was like, ‘Oh really? Have you guys kissed before?’ And I was like, ‘No.’ And he was like, ‘You should probably figure that out.'”
That’s when the 24-year-old decided they had to practice.
“I knocked on her trailer door before the day started. She was like, ‘Hi! How are you? I missed you. How was your weekend?’ And I was like, ‘Just hang on.’ And I just planted a smooch on her!” the actor explained. “I was like, ‘I’m sorry. I just had to get that out of the way.’ My heart was pounding, I was shaking. And I just didn’t want that to be awkward on screen for the first time.”
Ugh, how cute is that? And how did the blonde beauty react, you ask?
“She was so receptive, she was like, ‘No it’s all good. I get it. Cool. Great. Thanks,'” he continued.
As for the kiss, Gavin explained, “it was great. I went in for one and it was just a quick peck and I felt like that was the awkward one. So I was like, ‘Just one more time.’ And I gave a smooch and I was like, ‘OK, I know what that is like now, we can move forward from there.'”
Awww. You know what they say, practice makes perfect!
