“Reba” actress Joanna Garcia has some fond memories of her first onscreen kiss — which just happened to be with a rising screen heartthrob.
On the latest episode of “When I Was 17,” in which Nelly and Karina Smirnoff also share some of their teenage memories, Garcia dishes about her smooch scene with James Marsden, who’s graced movies such as “Enchanted” and “X-Men: The Last Stand.”
“I was still on [Nickelodeon’s] ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ and doing other shows here and there,” Garcia recalls. “I did a show called ‘Second Noah,’ which Jimmy Marsden was my first onscreen kiss. I was hired for the job, and I thought, ‘Wow, this guy is dreamy.’ ”
