In a new interview for Out.com, Brett Claywell and Scott Evans talk about their ONE LIFE LIVE pairing as Kyle and Fish.
The characters will share a kiss on August 6. What was it like taping a same-sex smooch?
SE: I don’t think it’s what people are expecting. The kiss comes from a different place. People will just have to wait and see how it plays out.
Were you guys nervous filming the kiss at all? Did you guys have to go out and get drunk the night before?
SE: From the beginning, Brett and I have been friends. He’s extremely easy to work with. Of course, there are nerves, but that happens every day when you come into work. I think we went in with the intent that we’re both professionals --
BC: Throughout this entire process I had to confront a lot of my beliefs in my life, in my acting and my career. I came to realize the job of an actor is to tell the truth of a character truthfully. Whatever emotion you’re supposed to have, whether it’s love, hate, or jealousy, you must honor those emotions. That day wasn’t hard for me because Kyle truly loves Fish. While I’m in that character, that’s what I portray -- love for Fish, which is where this upcoming kiss originates. The kiss comes from love not passion.
