Jasmine Burke has delivered the goods as star of Bounce Tv’s ‘Saints and Sinners’. If you are anything like me you have been tuning in for each episode. The show has broken the mold for what television about faith can look like. Jasmine Burke, whom plays first daughter Christie Johnson, has been touched by the fan encouragement. She told me, ‘The fans drive me every day. It can get really tough in this business. But, once you get the fan support it is amazing. They are honest.’
The show has surrounded Greater Hope Baptist Church and its community. However, in this family, love and loyalty have become tainted by lust, greed, and deeply ingrained secrets. The show kicked off its start with the return of a prodigal son and a shocking crime that rattles the core of the community, mysteries begin to unravel that could destroy the very heart of the church and shatter the lives of those within it.
The show was just renewed for a second season with great reason!
Orethapedia: What does that do to your development of your character?
Jasmine Burke: We were given the gift of acting with the production team and how they unveiled, I cannot even begin to share how skilled our staff was. They really bought the best out of our individual performances. It was really interesting how the whole team unveiled what our characters were going to do. So know, we were just as shocked as the audience was as things came to light on the screen.
Orethapedia: What is do you think Christie’s motive this season has been?
Jasmine Burke: Wow…well she has had a lot going on. She is real slick and unassuming at the beginning. You then her become gully. I loved that about her character. It was so cool to see her character develop.
Orethapedia: What’s was really going on in Christie’s head?
Jasmine Burke: You have to understand that I (Christie) was a daddy’s girl. She has had her mother disparage her. She has done everything perfect. She became a doctor. She opened a clinic. Everything was on point.Her father trusted her more than her mother. She dealt with all the pain and issues. Her strong points definitely are her great resourcefulness and quickness. She thinks on her felt. Her weakness. She forgets about herself.
Orethapedia: What has been the moment on the show that we should know is the ‘amazing moment’?
Jasmine Burke: Kelly Price is amazing. She can sing! She just rules the scene with her powerful voice. I can’t express how great this all has been.
