I wouldn’t wish that upon him
I love Nick, partly because even when he makes mistakes he makes the right decisions to correct those mistakes and I just feel like that's so rare in teen media. I love it.
I know it’s not necessarily a direct line between “only LGBTQ+ actors should play LGBTQ+ roles” and “let’s repeatedly badger an 18 year old to talk about his sexuality” but some of the Heartstopper-adjacent press has caused me secondhand agita.
Has anyone noticed sometimes when Nick and Charlie are kissing, they're not actually kissing on the lips but on the chin or something? I don't know if that's a stage thing or if they just keep missing the lips?
Yeah, it’s a lot of kissing upper lips and lower lips with some actual lip to lip kissing mixed in. I imagine it’s the intimacy coordinator choreographing each kiss scene so the actors are comfortable and them messing it up a little out of nerves? Plus they are playing teenagers who are 14/15, they aren’t going to be master kissers so I found the awkward make outs endearing.
I only noticed it really in the hallway corridor kiss at the end and the photo booth but everything else looked realistic.
Yes. Just looks a little clumsy sometimes... which fits for teenagers.
I guess they won't want to change too much and lose the character of the show, but I imagine the budget will be a little higher for the next 2 seasons so some little things like this will be a bit more polished.
She continues to tease us.
Some of you must have some interesting kissing techniques! I can’t see anything wrong. Kissing (or sucking) on someone’s top or lower lip is a great way to kiss. Are they expected to have gaping mouths with their tongues wiggling? - gay porn has a lot to answer for!
I tend to be a natural bottom lip kisser in general.
Let’s hope this doesn’t go the Love Victor route.
I can’t cope with the mental imagine of Nick spitting in Charlie’s mouth and being called daddy….
Charlie is kissing Nick's philtrum here.
That’s a still, presumably staged, which I imagine is uncomfortable to hold too long in certain more natural positions. In the episode it seems a very natural (and quickly placed) kiss to me.
Honestly I think this bugs me slightly because a lot of tv/film kisses look far too messy to me, like people are eating each other. I much prefer real intimacy to aggressive slobbering.
Suddenly I want to watch Love Victor
I like my lips to be on the bottom!
I just love Joe’s fashion.
Ffff I didn’t mean it like that!
I’m going to set myself on fire now.
Finally binged this and happy cried at the ending. So sweet and pure!
Joe and Bash are being proper fashionistas abroad and I’m loving it.
Connor Jessup was also there.
