- Masasa Mbangeni plays Thembeka on Scandal!
- Her current story line entails a romance with Bongile Mantsai, who plays Mthunzi on the soapie
- The actress said she is very ungrateful for how Bongile approaches intimate scenes
Masasa Mbangeni has opened up about what a pleasure it is to work with Bongile Mantsai.
Masasa plays Thembeka on Scandal!, while Bongile plays her current love interest Mthunzi.
The actress has made it clear that Bongile is the most respectful co-star a woman could wish for during intimate scenes.
She revealed that Bongile makes it a point to always consult her on her level of comfort and consent.
Masasa said, “Bongile Mantsai is one of the best men to act with. During an intimate scene blocking he will go: what are your boundaries? Do you feel safe being touched here and here (signalling on HIS body) then he will look you in the eye and say 'let’s play.' I wish him for everyone."
She continued, “Truly the most amazing man I have ever worked with and I have worked with some amazing men! May God bless and keep him."
With Bongile being such a heart-throb, fans were glad to hear he's also a gentleman.
Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that Masasa almost didn't reprise the role of Thembeka due to having a case of imposter syndrome.
We're glad she quickly got over that because the return of her scandalous character has kept fans glued to screens.
