X-Men star opens up about first on-screen gay kiss in music video
Actor and singer Troye Sivan has spoken about his first on-screen same-sex kiss, which took place in a video trilogy for his album Blue Neighbourhood.
The X-Men Origins: Wolverine star opened up about the emotional video trilogy which was directed by Tim Mattia.
Featuring three songs – ‘Wild’, ‘Fools’, and ‘Talk Me Down’, the videos follow a gay couple from their childhood friendship to a tragic ending.
“I heard these three songs but I just never listened to them in that particular order before”, Sivan said.
“You see a little girl and a little boy holding hands and everyone’s like, ‘Aww, sweet! When are you guys going to get married?’ I wanted to show that for young LGBT kids.'”
Of the passionate kissing scenes with co-star Matthew Eriksson, Sivan said he had not done anything quite like that before.
“I’d actually done it before with girls… It was my first time kissing a guy on screen. We had been friends on Facebook for a really long time but we had never met in person. The day after we met he was shirtless with his legs wrapped around me.”
