Since moving to the internet where there are no network censors, ALL MY CHILDREN has been pushing boundaries, and you may have heard a little something about a rather racy scene between a couple of characters in the episode that went online on Wednesday, June 12. While nothing graphic was actually shown, some viewers were still shocked by the sexually suggestive scene. But what did Brooke Newton (Colby) and Robert Scott Wilson (Pete) think about shooting it?
“I’d never done an on-screen kiss in my entire life before coming to this show,” confesses Newton. “I knew it was going to be a big challenge for me as an actress, so accept it and embrace it.”
She also admits that she didn’t speak with her co-star before shooting the scene. “Other actors talk about what they’re comfortable doing and what they’re not,” Newton says. “I feel, as an actress, I just need to be the character. I can’t put any limitations on myself.”
“We had a very long day, both Brooke and I,” Wilson adds. “It was about 9:30 at night. We started working at 8 am. We had a new director that day, who was great. We actually nailed that scene in one take!”
Despite the awkwardness, he says that the crew was very respectful, and he never felt uncomfortable at all while taping the sex scene. “We were both a little nervous,” Wilson confides. “Once the scene started, we were completely out of our heads and had fun with it. I think it came across how we wanted it to.”
