It's just in the show, but it's seriously awkward. Mark, my co-star, is a very sweet man, and he's perfectly fine as far as men go, but ARGH!
I can't get over the fact that I'm kissing another man.
And it FEELS awkward, like we're trying to manufacture chemistry. Which, to some extent, I guess we are. (His wife is seriously gorgeous. And he's no Nolan.)
I never had a problem with kissing on stage before I was married, and until now I haven't had occasion to, since. However to add insult to injury, one night at rehearsal this week, after 'the kiss,' I forgot my line. How embarrassing. I mean the kiss wasn't mind-blowing or anything, but it was, oh, I don't know, distracting, I guess. And we just stayed there, centimeters apart for like 15 seconds 'til I remembered that I was supposed to say something.
I just need to memorize my lines, try not to bump into the furniture, and not let the fact that I have to kiss this guy twice every night and act like I really want to, throw me for a loop.
