Beautiful Mzansi actress, Tema Sebopedi, knows just how to make her smooching scenes look real and loaded with chemistry.
As someone who has learnt from many years of experience, she shared some of her knowledge to aspiring actors and actresses.
"After playing ‘the girlfriend’ and ‘the wife’ throughout the majority of my career, I often get asked if kissing is real. Apply your tools. Breathing combined with physical posture and facial expressions can evoke basic human emotions.
"When you activate the energy that your character needs to express, sparks fly and the play becomes believable. It’s not just a skill. It’s got to be your gift; not for the faint-hearted."
Tema has been on our screens for a long time and has learnt what works and what doesn't. One thing she knows is that listening to the director is always a good idea.

"Always do what the director instructs, no matter how senseless it sounds or looks. It reflects an excellent work ethic that you as an actor are teachable and flexible. Your director has a broader perspective of the character and overarching narrative."
It's nice to see a talented and accomplished actress share her experience with others - that way the quality of entertainment remains high.
