WATCH: Inno Sadiki on intimate scenes as a pastor’s wife

In a candid revelation, actress Inno Sadiki, known for her role as Sthoko on Skeem Saam, opened up about her apprehensions regarding intimate scenes on the show, considering her role as a pastor’s wife.

Speaking to the Daily Sun, Sadiki shared her initial concerns about how such scenes might be perceived by both the public and her congregation.

“I was scared, I won’t lie to you. I’m like, I’m a pastor’s wife; I’m married to a pastor. Then imagine the next Sunday, after kissing someone, you have to go to church. You don’t want to be that pastor’s wife who walks into the church after kissing somebody else,” Sadiki expressed, reflecting on the delicate balance she faced between her on-screen persona and her real-life role within the church community.

However, to her pleasant surprise, Sadiki found that her fears were unfounded, as both her congregation and fans embraced her portrayal of Sthoko, even in romantic contexts. “I was very blessed because I’ve been acting before the church, and people in the church actually understand my work,” she explained. “They tag me and they’ll be like ‘oh beautiful scene’ because they understand.”

Despite the initial trepidation, Sadiki recognized that her primary responsibility as an actress was to embody her character to the best of her abilities. “It’s a matter of understanding. I can’t make people understand, that’s not my job. My job is to act, not to make people understand,” she asserted, emphasizing the importance of staying true to her craft despite external perceptions.

For Sadiki, the commitment to her artistry and storytelling prowess outweighed any potential judgment or criticism. “This is the commitment to the craft, to the art,” she affirmed. “We do this because we love it, we do this because we’ve been born for it. We do this because God has chosen us to do this.”

In urging viewers to appreciate the authenticity and realism of their work, Sadiki emphasized the significance of storytelling as a form of artistic expression. “Instead of people being judgmental, they need to appreciate the art, and they need to see the realism of the art that we do,” she stressed, underscoring the importance of acknowledging the dedication and talent of those involved in the creative process.

As Sadiki continues to captivate audiences with her performances, her unwavering commitment to her craft serves as a testament to the profound impact of storytelling in the realm of entertainment.
