There is another interview from the Los Angeles Times, read below! Also, screencaps and clips for the last night episode of 90210 2×17 – Sweaty Palms and Weak Knees will be added soon, I think I’ll have them ready and online by this evening!
We’ve been hearing about Adrianna’s lesbian tryst on “90210” since Season 2 premiered. The character’s girl-on-girl story line finally debuted after the show’s recent hiatus. Watching Ade explore her sexuality has been an interesting ride for viewers, but we’re not the ones portraying the gay relationship on television.
“Yeah, it’s definitely nerve-racking,” acknowledges Jessica Lowndes, who plays Ade on the CW show. “I think it’s the same with everything my character has gone through. I have no personal experience with it, be it the drug addiction, the pregnancy and now the questioning her sexuality. But I think it’s definitely important.”
Lowndes’ first lesbian kiss was a brave step for the show, which hasn’t had a major gay story line yet. Although it was important to her, Lowndes says that kissing Rumer Willis, who plays Gia, didn’t necessarily come naturally.
“We got a laugh between takes,” says Lowndes. “Yeah, the first one was like, OK [squeals], let’s not think about it. But, at the end of the day, you’re telling a story and you can’t get in your head over it. You got to just do the work and I think the scene comes out really great. I’m very proud of it.”
