However, recalling the moment, Tim admitted that his wife took the act so seriously, that he was worried that he had done something in real life to anger her.

"After about the eighth take, I was concussed a bit, and I told her afterward, 'Do we need to talk?!'" he joked during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

"'Is there something going on I don't know about?'" he added. "Because I was expecting a good finger slap. No, it was a paw."

Faith and Tim played on-screen married couple James and Margaret Dutton

Tim also opened up about how he and Faith agreed to fully immerse themselves in their characters so viewers would see them as James and Margaret and not Tim and Faith.

"We said, 'It's gonna be tough, because people are gonna see Faith and Tim onscreen, and we have to overcome that,'" he told Jimmy.

"So we sort of gave each other a high five, gave each other a kiss, and said, 'You know what, the only way to do it is to try to be good at it.'"

The couple have been married 25 years

The country music star had high praise for his wife's acting skills too, revealing she forced him to up his own game because she was so good.

"Her and I had never acted together. We'd never done anything on-screen together, other than videos," Tim explained.

"She blew me away every single day. She was so nervous, and you know, she'd done two movies before," he continued, adding: "And I'd done a handful of movies, but she showed up every day and just blew me away. She elevated my game every day."
