Actress Sope Aluko—who stars in the new film Black Panther alongside stars including Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan and others—recently gave an interview with the site OkayAfrica.com, and provided an interesting anecdote about the production.
Aluko, who is an outspoken Christian, said, “It felt very familiar and like home. We had early call times but I didn’t even feel the long set hours because it was such a good time. I didn’t feel like I was amongst stars, everyone was so down to earth and normal. During breaks we shared our testimony of how we got to where did and most of the people were testifying to God’s miracles, it was almost like church.”
The movie drops Feb. 16.
