Real-Life Romance: 'PEN15' Stars Maya Erskine & Anna Konkle Share Awkward Kissing Scenes with Partners

Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, stars of the TV show "PEN15," have used their real-life partners for awkward kissing scenes. The pair play their 13-year-old middle school selves in the comedy, but since they are both in their 30s, they wanted to make the intimate scenes as comfortable as possible. By having their actual partners on set, they felt more at ease during the awkward and sometimes embarrassing scenes. This decision helped them maintain a sense of authenticity and added an extra layer of awkwardness to their performances.
