Marvel actress Emily VanCamp admits that her character Sharon Carter's kiss with Captain America might've gone"too far."

This divisive moment occurs during Captain America: Civil War, after the S.H.I.E.L.D agent goes undercover as Steve Rogers' (played by Chris Evans) neighbor. Speaking to Collider, VanCamp reflected on this scene, which enraged a portion of the MCU faithful five years ago.

"You sort of trust and hope that it all makes sense in the end," she noted."I did have a few moments where I wondered,'Are we going too far with this? Should this be more of an amicable, friendly moment?' I didn't really know. I don't think any of us really knew.

"I don't think it's anyone's fault that it didn't totally work in terms of the story. I don't think anyone knew where that was headed or what we were going to do with that moment. It was a sweet moment as it was.

"It's a hard one to answer because you don't want to sort of say,'Well, it was a terrible moment and it didn't make any sense,' because everyone's just kind of doing the best they can to service the story in that moment, really."

VanCamp, who reprised the role of Sharon in this year's spin-off series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, also went on to suggest that their kiss was built to create a reaction.

"There was quite a visceral feeling about that kiss, I think, but ultimately, that's the whole point. You want people talking.

"You want people to get passionate about these moments and these stories, and so that certainly happened," she added.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is streaming exclusively on Disney+.
