While the Canadian actress, 26, is determined never to film gratuitous smooching scenes, she admits she has to field disapproving calls from her family on a regular basis.
Lilly says, "They're very conservative and they're very, very bothered by the kissing scenes I have to do.
"But being a Christian doesn't sit well in this industry. I don't mind kissing scenes if they're telling the story but I won't do them if they are gratuitous.
"Any time there anything even slightly risque on the show my family are on the phone saying, 'We didn't like that.'"
The star makes his superhero debut in the upcoming movie.
