Brief Take: Speaking to Lesley-Ann Brandt from the series Lucifer is not at all a devil-ish experience. She calls right on time on her way from the gym, and even pulls over to make sure that we can hear each other a little better. In fact, what is so remarkable about Brandt is how open she is to express her feelings and beliefs, after recently attending the opening of the Los Angeles LGBT Center as well as attending her first ClexaCon this past weekend. In addition, she shared exclusively with Brief Take what viewers, both first-timers and long-time fans, should anticipate from her character Mazikeen for this upcoming season of Lucifer.

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 an ownership in 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.

And you now have a platform to explore the many sides of Mazikeen this season.

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.

Women’s Health: Lesley-Ann Brandt, star of cult series Lucifer on Netflix, is 37 and mom to an adorable toddler. But you’d never guess that, looking at the May issue of Women’s Health. Lesley-Ann is naked on the cover, save for her signature Africa tattoo with the little heart over her homeland – Cape Town, SA.

“To do this after a baby, at 37 years old, feels good. I know I’ll look back at this one day, happy to have it done it.” Lesley-Ann says of the bare-all cover.

And honestly, who wouldn’t be, with such a sexy, sculpted bod? Here’s how she keeps it in shape.

When Lesley-Ann first appeared on the cover of Women’s Health, shortly after her son was born, she already wasn’t a meat eater. Now she’s cut out other animal products as well. So to make sure she still gets all the nutrients her body needs, Lesley-Ann consulted a professional.

“I’m fully aware there are are millions of vegans who aren’t always ensuring they’re getting everything they need nutritionally,” she says. “So I’m seeing a doctor in conjunction to ensure my body is healthy and I’m not deprived of anything.”

Lesley-Ann enjoys exercise, but that doesn’t mean she never has days when she doesn’t feel like working out. When she’s working towards something, she buys herself cute workout gear that she can rock in the gym once she’s achieved her goal.

“In fact, I bought clothes while I was pregnant, with the goal of getting into them post pregnancy,” she says. What she doesn’t do: stand on the scale. “That’s just a terrible way to play mind games with yourself,” she says.

She works out with her personal trainer Paolo Mascitti four or five times a week, but she also works with a movement specialist and does yoga. Even her workouts with Paolo are varied, with each session including a mix of steady-state cardio, strength training and high-intensity interval training. It’s not just about the workouts. Lesley-Ann plays Mazikeen on Lucifer – a demon with a habit of finding herself in sticky situations and butt-kicking her way out of them. That means a lot of time spent with the stunt team. “Roundhouse kicks after a baby are very different,” she says. Ok, Lesley-Ann, if you say so.
