So the official language of hell is… Afrikaans (lol).
South Africa – The promo for the new season of Lucifer is making everyone in South Africa giggle with the use of Afrikaans as a fictional language.
Lucifer is an American urban fantasy police procedural comedy-drama television series developed by Tom Kapinos that premiered on Fox on January 25, 2016. It is based on the DC Comics character.
The series revolves around Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), the Devil, who abandons Hell for Los Angeles where he runs his own nightclub and becomes a consultant to the LAPD. The ensemble and supporting cast include Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro as Detective Daniel “Dan” Espinoza, D. B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Rachael Harris as Dr Linda Martin and Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen.
Lesley-Ann can be seen in the new promo speaking Afrikaans momentarily.
Lesley-Ann is a South African-born actress who is based in Auckland, New Zealand, and Los Angeles, United States. The talented actress has been in several New Zealand television series and first came to international notice with her role as a slave girl Naevia in the series Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
Since January 2016, she has played the role of Maze (Mazikeen) and apparently uses Afrikaans as her “demon language”.
