Lesley-Ann Brandt biography
Born in South Africa, the renowned actress immigrated to New Zealand in 1999 together with her parents and younger brother. In Auckland, she worked as a retail salesperson and then as an information technology recruitment consultant. She was still focused on her acting since she took modelling jobs and studied acting (including the famous Meisner technique in 2008).
Lesley-Ann Brandt career
Her first notable role was in the show Diplomatic Immunity, which aired in New Zealand. Aside from that, she made appearances in a few soap operas. However, her biggest break was in Spartacus: Blood and Sand where she played the role of a slave girl called Naevia. Interestingly, she wanted the role of Sura although the directors suggested a switch for her.
Lesley did not come back for Spartacus subsequent seasons because of production delays, so she opted for other roles in other films. She has also made several guest appearances on popular shows such as CSI: NY, playing the role of Camille Jordanson (2011), and Gotham as Larissa Diaz (2014). In 2015, she landed the role of Maze on Lucifer, which is a project she has been working on since then. Presently, LA is her home on a permanent basis.
