Kgomotso Christopher, who appears in Netflix’s Fatal Seduction, has started a discussion about n*dity and personal situations on our screens.
She told newsmen that she liked being on a platform that allowed them to go past the watershed hour of 8 p.m.
Although it appears that more films are migrating toward these moments, the actress stated that it is a choreographed dance among actors (facilitated by an intimacy coach) and that a lot of work goes on behind the scenes.
“It becomes easy (the scenes) when you have the resources of intimacy coaches who choreographed all those stunts you have seen. It’s not us, we don’t know what we are doing.
“I always say credit to our intimacy coaches. We would have to spend hours and hours before shooting a scene just to prep, and it’s pretty much like a dance choreography, how to do this and that and then we have to practice it and then we go into the aspect of what do you feel comfortable wearing.”
“Now the department of wardrobe is involved to make sure you are comfortable, to make sure everything works before you even shoot it, and of course, we have the agency to decide what it is we will and will not do.
“And that’s something that people are also not aware of is that as actors we are very clear as to what, how we are shooting and whether we are happy that we are shooting in that way, and the approval comes from us.”

She explained that there are numerous ways to capture an intimate scene, but it all relies on what she and the other actors decide to do in the situation. She stated that having worked on this program, she does not take it for granted.
Part of the discussion included fans who had identified with Kgomotso’s prior personas and recalled her in less intimate settings. She did, however, reveal that her first personal presentation titled Foreplay: S*x Tips for Girls.
“Series allows us to push the boundaries because terrestrial channels and soapies play at a certain time and at a certain time you can’t show certain scenes, so eventually people will say of Isidingo, of Scandal, Thula or Rockville so you won’t say of the stuff that we get to do when we are on drama series.
“We play late at night when people are sleeping. It is quite an interesting one in that sense.
“That is the reason that I went for the role, for people to see me in a different light, for me to also push myself as an artist, push my craft, diversify my performances if I can and if a role can offer that, it has to be challenging enough.”
