Mzansi-born actress, Lesley-Ann Brandt, recently made headlines after she busted the taal on US TV series, Lucifer. Since then, Lesley has proudly shown off her Mzansi roots.
The talented local actress has just filed the fourth season of the insanely-popular show, shortly after giving birth to her son, Kingston.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Lesley has owned her Afrikaans 'praating' scene with absolute pride. Mzansi was buzzing when they saw the clip; it went viral almost instantly.
The fourth season premiered on 8 May on Netflix. Lesley plays Mazikeen, a demon who takes the form of a young woman, and she has embraced the Afrikaans thing like a boss!
Lesley relocated to New Zealand with her family in 1999 from Cape Town and went on to persue her career in film. She has sacrificed a lot to get to where she is, but she has never forgotten her roots.
The talented actress loves her hometown and hopes to get a gap to visit soon.
"I miss Table Mountain - it's always so spiritual when I go hiking up there or Lion's Head. I also miss the sense of humour; no matter what the country is going through, we just have this incredible dark sense of humour, which I love," expressed Lesley.
We all know that you can take the girl out of Mzansi, but you can’t take the Mzansi out of the girl, right!? Lesley proudly tells people that "When you cut me, my blood runs green and gold."
