Plenty of planning went into the kiss beforehand, because “everyone on the show wanted to get it just right,” Fischer explains. Director Ken Kwapis told her to start the scene after he walked away — he didn’t want to break the moment by calling “action.” “When he walked away, I felt completely transported into a new reality.
