Weird question, but I've always wondered... In the photo ops, do the actors strike the poses that they want? Or do people ask them for certain things? I know some come in with props and specific requests, but what about the hugs and kisses on the cheek? I'd be so awkward asking Lana or Colin if they'd kiss me on the cheek for a photo. Is that even appropriate?
If you don’t ask they kind of go for a default pose. Here are some examples of default. I didn’t ask for anything specific here.
If you do ask for a pose know that you only have like fifteen seconds or so you can’t explain something elaborate. So…
“Would you hold my heart…”
To Lana got this…
and to Bex got this…
Which I can assure you I wasn’t expecting. I thought she’d do what Lana did.
But another example, “Can we kill the camera man?”
And yes I think asking for a kiss on the cheek picture is fine though I think I’d say “can it look like you are kissing me on the cheek?” so they have the option of “hover kissing” if they don’t want to actually do it. They can always say no.
