Story of awkward big screen kiss brought to life by public relations agency in Edinburgh
Scots actress Louise Linton has spilled the beans on her intimate first encounter with handsome House of Cards actor Sam Page on their new Hollywood rom com.
Within minutes of being introduced on the set of Serial Daters Anonymous, the pair were forced to lock lips as part of an important scene which took 10 takes to get right.
Edinburgh-born Louise, who moved to Hollywood, 8 years ago, landed the lead role in the romantic comedy, which is due for cinema release in the US at the end of the year and in the UK in early 2015.

She said: “I loved working with Sam Page who played my love interest and he’d just finished a great role on House of Cards with Kevin Spacey.
“However, our first scene together was a bit awkward as it involved a long passionate kiss.
“It’s quite intimidating meeting someone new then being lip-locked for 10 takes. Kissing a stranger is unnerving and frankly, scary, but Sam is so charming and talented all our scenes together were raucous good fun.”
In the movie Louise plays Claire, a fashion columnist who jilts her cheating husband-to-be at the altar and embarks on a dating spree with one aim – to wage revenge on the entire male gender and which sees her labelled a “dating vigilante”However, her plan hits a complications when she reconnects with her first love Kyle, played by heart throb Page.The movie, billed as an all-American rom com in the style of Runaway Bride meets This Means War, was filmed in Page’s home state of Wisconsin.
The chiselled actor is no stranger to kissing blondes on camera after starring as the handsome professor who captured Serena van der Woodsen’s attention in hit series Gossip Girl in 2010. He has also appeared in Mad Men and Desperate Housewives.
The comedy role caps a busy year for Louise, who has also just completed filming a part in the eagerly-anticipated biopic of Howard Hughes, which is being directed by Tinsel Town legend, Warren Beatty.
