Actress Kgomotso Christopher speaks on tlof tlof scenes

Khanyi Mbau surprised many South Africans after they saw a s.e.x scene she did with Mondli Makhoba on the latest season of The Wife. In many ways, the s.e.x scene was the first of its kind in South Africa and it instantly became a trending topic across the country.

Not only was it explicit, but it also showed n#dity which is not a common thing on South African television.

On the latest episode of Downtime with Somizi, Kgomotso Christopher was one of the guests who were featured on the second episode of the show alongside Mampho Brescia.

After having a conversation about the industry and its complexities, the actress was then asked if she would be comfortable playing an intimate role and if her husband would be secure about it, “He does not mind, remember, they met us as actors, they supported us way before even anyone knew a Mampho Brescia or a Kgomtso Christopher, we had husbands who would be like, follow your dreams.”

On whether or not she would have a s.e.x scene like the one Khanyi Mbau had on The Wife, this is what she had to say, “I am one as an actor who says, I am just a vessel to tell a story and if that story needs that scene, for me I do what needs to be done for a story to be told because that is not me, that is the character.”

Kgomotso then explained that she and her husband of 18 years are very open with each other and that they communicate really well about everything that goes on in their lives.

It was now Mampho’s turn to answer the question, “as an actor you have to be able to go anywhere, as long as it is authentic to the story and as long as it is done in a way that is respectful to the story.”

Mampho then went on to explain how the scene should be if she would consider doing it, “It should make sense, it definitely should not be like p0rn.”

A couple of days after Khanyi’s raunchy scene was aired, Khanyi and her co-star went on a Twitter Space to answer burning questions from fans. After a fan asked Khanyi about her infamous s.e.x scene, Khanyi explained the process of shooting the scene and what she wore, “I wore the thinnest T strap underwear you can ever imagine. Camera work allows the illusion for you to think there’s nothing there when there’s everything there. For example, in the scene where he went down on me, there was literally a big camera in the sheets with us,” she explained.

She then went on to add, “Even in the scene where you see Nkosana under the sheet talking to me, you thought I was there. I wasn’t there. I was not even in the room when they shot him lying in bed as if they were both there.”

In the Twitter space which was dubbed #TheWifeShowmaxSpace, Khanyi and Mondli also explained how there was no penetration in the scene and that it was purely acting after fans were curious to know whether or not the s.e.x was real.
