According to Actress Pearl Monama, she confirmed to Timeslive that she is not bothered about the backlash received by herĀ for her role as Sphesihle ‘Sphe’ Cele inĀ Generations.

“I have really enjoyed my role on the show so far but the most challenging part has been moving with her through her different situations. When she started she was humble and respectful. Now she is something else. She backchats her parents and fights with her in-laws. Her character gets backlash but I have learnt to understand that there is a difference between the character and me.”

She also added that some people including close friends now refers to her as the onscreen character she plays;

“Whatever backlash she gets means that I am doing a good job in portraying her and bringing out emotions. So I don’t take it personally. Not everyone is going to love the character and what she does. If they are criticising her, it means they are recognising something in her that is in themselves as well.”

“People think that I am the person that I am on TV. They see me and expect me to know them. I never know how to receive that, especially when they are over excited. They can sometimes get carried away. They pull you in different directions.”
