Feisty May (Tina Jaxa) has al­ways been fear­less in her pur­suit of what she wants. But how far is she will­ing to go when she’s faced with the pos­si­bil­ity of trad­ing sex­ual favours for the job she so des­per­ately needs? Af­ter an odd in­ter­ac­tion with the prin­ci­pal of the lo­cal school Mpho (An­drea Don­dolo) on Tues­day 11 Oc­to­ber, May’s in an awk­ward po­si­tion when a sex­ual ad­vance is made by the per­son re­spon­si­ble for get­ting her out of the un­em­ploy­ment line on Thurs­day 13 Oc­to­ber. “May can’t read be­tween the lines un­til Mpho ac­tu­ally says that she has feel­ings for her,” ex­plains Tina.

JOBS FOR SNOGS

“May is shocked by the rev­e­la­tion and the kiss that fol­lows, but she doesn’t show it. She wants the teach­ing job at the school, so she plays along and goes the ex­tra mile to get what she wants,” Tina says. On Mon­day 17 Oc­to­ber, it ap­pears that her ef­forts have paid off when May scores an in­ter­view at the school. “The job hunt­ing has been a bit of a rough road for May. She knows teach­ing best and she will do any­thing for her fam­ily,” says Tina of her char­ac­ter’s at­ti­tude go­ing into the in­ter­view. Be­ing able to pro­vide for her fam­ily means a lot to May and that, com­bined with her cal­cu­lat­ing na­ture, means that “she doesn’t see a prob­lem with us­ing Mpho to get a job,” Tina adds.

GO­ING THE EX­TRA MILE

Although she’s never seen her­self as at­trac­tive to the same sex, says Tina, May sees Mpho’s at­trac­tion to her as a com­pli­ment. “She in­stantly knew that she could use Mpho’s feel­ings to her own ad­van­tage and May is happy that a woman can look at her like that [in a sex­ual way], es­pe­cially fol­low­ing the loss of her hus­band. This makes May think that another man can look at her too,” says Tina. But is she will­ing to go fur­ther than just the kiss they shared?
