Actors Nomvelo Makhanya and Mathews Rantsoma, who play the roles of Lindiwe and Nhlamulo on’s soapie Scandal! have admitted that they struggle with intimate scenes on the show.  

The actors who are both dating other people in real life have also revealed that they’ve been comfortable with each other since the beginning as they’ve known each other for years.  

Makhanya told TshisaLIVE:

“Mathews and I have always been very comfortable with each other from day one, I think also because I know him from back in school.”

“From day one we just said let’s just play, whatever comes, comes.”

“I guess one disclaimer I’ve given him was just the breath mints, but that’s just standard.”  


Fans of the pair were unsure they’d make it to the altar after Lindiwe recently discovered that her now-husband, Nhlamulo accidentally killed her husband.  

Her father Mlungisi Ngema played by Patrick Mofokeng died on their wedding day and exited the show after seven years.  

Rantshoma told the publication that he’s had to remind his real-life girlfriend that he’s just acting and not in a relationship with Lindiwe.   

He also states that boundaries are important and that it’s vital for couples to give each other disclaimers so they don’t cross any lines.   

“The most difficult scenes are always the intimate ones, because we always have to have a conversation about whether we are okay with me going so far.”

“It has to be a conversation so that we don’t overstep in the name of playing a role.” he says
