“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,” she said. “I didn’t feel like I was amongst stars, everyone was so down to earth and normal.”

Sope Aluko continued, “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 actress frequently posts Christian sentiment on social media.  In October, she shared a quote that read, “Maintaining my relationship with God, because without Him I am nothing.”
