Jane Lynch talks about her lesbian romance scenes with Cybill Shepherd, on The L Word, in her new memoir Happy Accidents.

We have come to love Jane Lynch for her role as the tough-as-nails cheerleading coach on Glee, as well as for her reoccurring role as Joyce Wischina, the no-holds-barred lesbian lawyer on The L Word. In her new memoir Lynch opens up about how Cybill Shepherd, Lynch’s off and on on-screen partner, took the lead in their make out sessions on The L Word, according to OnTopMag.

“I'd do two or three episodes a season, and I couldn't wait to get the scripts in my P.O. Box. I jumped up and down and whooped audibly on the day I read that [my character] was to get together with Phyllis, played by none other than gorgeous television icon Cybill Shepherd. … When it came time for the kissing, in her spirited attempt to get past the discomfort, Cybill wound up taking the lead and dove in with enthusiasm, cutting me off with kisses before I could finish any of my lines. I appreciated the commitment,” Lynch wrote in Happy Accidents.

And as viewers, we also appreciated the commitment!
