Downton Abbey's Rob James-Collier: 'I Found It Easier' to Kiss a Man

Downton

British TV presenter Jonathan Ross spoke with Downton Abbey footman Rob James-Collier about his gay storyline on the series, and asked if he found kissing men harder than kissing women on screen.

Said James-Collier:

"I found it easier.The way I was thinking was that if you kiss a girl you worry about: 1) How big her boyfriend is; 2) Is he in the building watching and is he going to kick the s**t out of you?; and 3) What is my missus going to think of it? So we went to the BFI for a big unveiling on the cinema screen, and the missus knew it (the kiss) was coming, and we were all sitting watching it and I thought 'Nice one, she can't accuse me of anything', and the missus turned to me and said 'You've never kissed me like that'."


Five Favorite Men of TV's Period Pieces

Tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern the CW premieres Reign, a period drama focusing on a young Mary, Queen of Scots. Since this is the CW, there will be lots of scandalous teenage sexuality. This series is also boasting a buzzy soundtrack featuring current artists like Mumford & Sons and Santigold. They're hoping the juxtaposition of cool, contemporary tracks against bodice-ripping melodrama will be enough to add a little spice to the historical soap.

Reign isn't the first television period piece and, with shows like The Gilded Age in development, it certainly won't be the last. Sure, the secret to success is in the storytelling, but, come on, a handsome leading man to get your petticoats all tied in knots certainly doesn't hurt.
