B. Ask the director to change the kiss to a hug–or even better, a handshake. Or best of all, a look. Okay, if the director threatens to fire you, stop this very second!

C. Tell the director your situation. Maybe they’ll be kind enough to let a substitute person do the kissing.

D. Just fake it. Get through the kiss–and get it over with in the first take. This will also make the director happy. Hey, if you want to be an actor, this is what it needs!
