Anonymous said: What was it like kissing each other for the first time? It's what we see in the film, right?
Holmes: I assume you are referring to our characters’ first kiss, and not ours.
Watson: Isn’t that what she said?
Holmes: Not directly, no.
Watson: Yes, it is the kiss you see in the film. In fact, we did not rehearse the kiss itself, just the scene around it, and I believe the take in the film was the first take, so the kiss in the film is our first kiss of any variety.
Holmes: Keep in mind that our characters were the ones kissing, not us.
Watson: Quite so. As to what it was like? Honestly, it wasn’t much different than anyone else I’ve ever kissed in a film.
Holmes: Except you had to stand on tiptoes a bit.
Watson: Yes, thanks for that, dearest.
