In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Luke (Mark Hamill) has just moments to say his last goodbye to his sister Leia (Carrie Fisher).
Before he walks away, Luke plants a tender kiss on Leia’s forehead. Hamill revealed that the kiss was not a part of the original script but that it was a genuine action on his part.

Johansson confessed she was completely surprised by Murray’s kiss, but her reaction to the unforeseen moment is what created so much authenticity in the scene.
As an avant-garde actor, Murray decided to take the creative liberty with his character and director Sofia Coppola approved of it in the end.
The audience may never know if a surprising, on-screen moment was in the script or if the actor just chose to follow their character. Either way, if done correctly, these moments can totally shock even the most intuitive viewer.
On the medical drama ER, the romantic tension between Dr. Doug Ross (George Clooney) and Nurse Carol Hathaway (Juliana Margulies) left viewers on the edge of their seats during the show.

However, Clooney left the series, leaving dismayed ER fans to think their relationship was over. A few seasons later, Margulies also decided to move on from ER but, as a treat for the fans, the writers finally had Dr. Ross give that long-awaited kiss to Nurse Hathaway.
Viewers were shocked as they thought there would never be another romantic moment between the two.
Luke and Leia
This kiss was weighty for Star Wars fans because not only was Luke saying goodbye to Leia forever, but actor Mark Hamill was essentially saying goodbye to a character he had known for years.
The scene affected Hamill so much because Fisher died before the film was released. He could no longer watch the scene because of the emotions it made him relive.
