The scene where Rock Hudson
kisses Linda Evans
was a gut wrenching scene for Hudson to film. Hudson was made aware in May of 1984 that a pimple on his neck that hadn't healed was, in fact, Kaposi's Sarcoma, revealing that Hudson was suffering from Aquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). He was at first thrilled to be appearing on Dynasty
(1981), but all that changed when he read in the script that he had to kiss Linda Evans. At the time, it was not known whether the AIDS virus could be transmitted by kissing, although a lot of doctors at the time didn't think so. He felt he was faced with either disclosing to the world he had AIDS, or go through with the kiss. He decided to go through with it, but on the morning of the day the scene was to be filmed, Hudson used every mouthwash, gargle and spray he could get his hands on. The kiss was filmed without incident, and Hudson made sure his mouth remained tightly shut and he Kissed Evans to the side of her mouth. After it was publicly confirmed Rock Hudson had AIDS and was dying, Linda Evans and the cast and crew of "Dynasty" sent him messages of love and support. Linda Evans fans however were furious at Rock for risking Linda's life. Linda however, was convinced she was never at risk. Rock Hudson passed away on Tuesday, October 3, 1985, almost eight whole months after this episode first aired. See more
