Serah Ndanu, from her Kalasha-winning part in Rugged Priest to her femme fatale character in Dorothy Ghettuba’s Swahili soap opera Sumu la Penzi, has always been in a league of her own. Her versatility on television is likely most visible in her depiction of fighting twin sisters Linda and Nicole in the Kenyan Showmax Original thriller series Igiza.

This is Ndanu’s first film part in two years, and it was a difficult one that required much research, tough workshops, and intense coaching from famed stage director Dr Julisa Rowe.
