Lesley-Ann Brandt Interview
Interview: Lucifer’s Lesley-Ann Brandt
Brief Take: The #SaveLucifer campaign working out must have been an incredible experience.
Lesley-Ann Brandt: Absolutely! These kinds of things don’t happen in our industry. But I think that it speaks to the times, the way that people view content now is so different and being able to have ownership in the content they watch and the shows that they want to see. The fans worked so hard to make sure that their voices were being heard, and even though we didn’t fit in the network model, they were finding ways to do it worldwide, so it makes sense for us to be on a streaming service.
Particularly on Netflix, the biggest streaming service in the world, because we were on Netflix in a lot of countries already, and given the freedom that we have now, we obviously don’t want to lose our core audience or change the show so dramatically, that it’s no longer the show with which the fans fell in love—that being said, we do have some leeway to push boundaries. I just think that people are going to be really excited and I’m so happy for the fans because they get to see the fruits of their labor and their tweeting and speaking up and will get to see that now.
BT: And you now have a platform to explore the many sides of Mazikeen this season.
LAB: And that’s the thing about our show, in a weird way, even though we’re a light-hearted show that doesn’t take itself too seriously at times, which I think is part of the charm, that we have real, honest, human moments that really affect people. We see that when we go to the fan conventions – people come up and say “Oh my God, that scene in which you…” I had this Dad who came up to me in Australia, and he said “the scene in which Maze goes trick-or-treating, it touched me in such a way as a Dad, because I’m a Dad who struggles with these demons and I’ve always been scared to kind of share that with my kids.
But when you unveil your demon face and went trick-or-treating, I think that no matter what are my demons, my kids are going to love me”. I mean… [gasps] Tears, down my face, the whole time. To have this scene resonate with a Dad in that way is crazy and so important for our writers to know, you know that what we do matters. So yeah, I’m excited too that on the other side of the coin, I do get to be a little more demonic, which is fun too.
BT: How do you feel when you’re playing your character?
LAB: What’s so great about our show is that we’re a show about humanity, but we have the worst character ever and the man responsible for all the bad in the world. In season 1, the focus for Mazikeen was to return back home, right? And in season 2, it’s “I can’t go home now, so how do I make her feel like home”, and then in season 3, it was all about relationships, and in season 4, it’s about a relationship.
It’s about finding love, and so it’s very human – my approach to her. In fact, I drew on my experiences an immigrant, leaving South Africa for New Zealand. It took me a good couple of years to make New Zealand feel like home, I was almost 18, it was a tough age to emigrate and to leave all your friends behind. You know, very much like Mazikeen in that first season, in which she was like “No one gets me, no one understands me”, as no one in New Zealand could understand my South African accent, it was tough. So I just really drew on those life experiences. And I’m a very feisty person in real life, so that part of it I accessed easily too. I’m a very physical person, too – I work out, I do most of my stunts, like 90% of them. I enjoy that part of her. And then the approach to her is just very human.
BT: What can you say about working with this tremendous ensemble?
LAB: Our unit, like what we have on our show, is so rare in our industry, sadly. We’re in a sense, like we have a “no asshole” policy, and I think that this really stems from the producers, because they are so protective of that fact. We all genuinely love each other.
We’re in each other’s lives, both on-screen and off-screen. We’re at birthday parties and kids events and weddings, and we have Tom’s wedding coming up and that is to be protected in our industry. And our producers do a wonderful job, so when they are hiring people to come in, they obviously are looking at the talent, but I think that they are also making sure that whoever we hire isn’t going to rock the boat. We’re so grateful. I get to go and play with my family when I go to work.Lesley-Ann Brandt Photo
They were so incredibly supportive when I came back to work six weeks after having my baby. And I was so happy that I didn’t have to say goodbye to people who I loved and that I think are wonderful, beautiful human beings and that are also incredibly talented and elevate the writing and make going to work a lot of fun. While we come from different backgrounds, what we all are is kind and loving and progressive and wanting to do the best job that we can on our show and be the best sort of people that we can be while doing the show.
