Lesley-Ann Brandt

This Cape Town, South African native portrays Naevia, Lucretia's slave who has lived within the ludus walls since birth. In one of the more heart-pumping side plots of the Starz original series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, a forbidden affair draws her into a seductive yet dangerous love triangle.

Lesley-Ann Brandt has shot to stardom rapidly in New Zealand. Her unusual path to acting has seen her go from IT Recruitment Consultant to landing the lead role in the hit comedy series Diplomatic Immunity, starring alongside Craig Parker (of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Lord of the Rings and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), quickly moving her into the hearts of the nation.

Lesley-Ann started her career as a model, booking prestigious national and international campaigns. She very soon drew the attention of Casting Directors who encouraged her to pursue acting. Whilst working full time, Brandt trained with various New Zealand and internationally based acting coaches. She has most recently appeared in guest roles on New Zealand's series Shortland Street, This Is Not My Life and her current role as Naevia in the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Lesley-Ann has just completed filming her first feature film Hopes and Dreams.

She is fluent in Afrikaans, and has in the past played competitive and social hockey. Brandt is primarily based in Auckland New Zealand, but is currently based in Los Angeles.
