The actress, who plays Nate Archibald's (Chace Crawford) mature and beautiful love interest on Gossip Girl, has a steamy make out scene with the 23-year-old. And that's just in the first five minutes of the show's season two premiere!
Luckily, she's not above kissing and telling. "He's a very good kisser," Amick, 37, says. "If anyone gets the opportunity to kiss him, he will not disappoint."
The season premiere of the CW show, which airs Monday (8 p.m. ET), catches up with Nate and his fellow privileged pals, Serena (Blake Lively), Blair (Leighton Meester), Chuck (Ed Westwick), Dan (Penn Badgley) and Jenny (Taylor Momsen), at the end of the summer season.
"Nate has been keeping busy having an affair with an older married woman," Amick explains. "Things continue with Nate, but she gets very intertwined with the other characters and there's a lot that I'm not supposed to say."
However, of her four episode arc, Amick will say that "she causes a lot of trouble."
The actress, who has two teenagers at home, says her kids got to visit her on the set, but she didn't let them watch while she made out with Crawford.
"That just would be completely wrong," she says. But she's not against them seeing the racy -- and sometimes controversial -- show on TV. "They're very savvy. They've seen me do stuff in the past. They've seen me be a killer," she says of her 15-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son. "They know it's all make-believe. It's not going to affect them."
As for her younger costars, Amick says she's impressed at how they're handling all the attention.
"Everywhere these go, when they're filming or going home or going to dinner or whatever, there are masses of fans following them and huge crowds of paparazzi," says Amick, who says she's tried to stay out of the spotlight since starring in the eerie TV classic Twin Peaks in the early '90s, when she was a teenager. "I really don't envy the kids because they're right in the middle of it.
"But they seem to be very mature, savvy, young actors," she continues. "They don't seem to be angry about it and they don't seem to have huge egos because of it either. I don't know where they found this group, but they all seem to have level heads."
