First Kiss Under The Public Eye For Melissa
Every girl wants her first kiss to be special. But if you’re in showbiz, then it might not be the best situation. Melissa Gilbert, who was young at the time of when the TV show was shot, had her first kiss when she was only fifteen. While she would have preferred it to be with the person she wanted and not a form of entertainment for others, there was nothing she could do.
Melissa had to kiss her co-star, Dean Butler, for the on-screen romance. She was extremely nervous at this point since Butler was much older than she was. Moreover, her lack of inexperience further aided in her nervousness.
