    This is actually a question that comes up a lot. There is no “one size fits all” for this. It comes down to the actor and their convictions. Each actor needs to have an open conversation with their spouse about it and they need to seek the Lord on it. I, personally, don’t feel the Lord telling me no, but my husband is not comfortable with it. Out of respect to my husband, I don’t kiss on screen.

    Also, there are so many ways to tell a story without a kiss. There are also creative ways to “fake” a kiss on screen and no one is the wiser.

    The most important thing is to make that choice for yourself, as the actor, and hold fast to that boundary.
