Admit it. What everyone really wanted to see when they heard Angie Harmon was co-starring with Sasha Alexander in a new cop show — TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” — was a little girl-on-girl action.
Fans got their wish — sort of — in last week’s episode titled “I Kissed a Girl” in which Harmon’s character, homicide detective Jane Rizzoli, goes undercover at a lesbian bar and ends up getting kissed on the neck by the bartender. As filmed, the scene was more expressive than even the show’s director expected, says Harmon.
“To be very honest, it all sort of happened because of a misunderstanding. The director said one thing and I thought he said another. We both did what the director thought we wanted to do. When he said cut, we all just burst out laughing. It was all very funny and accidental. That’s what we loved about it. Great things happen on film when it’s organic and not rehearsed,” she says.
