Earlier this week, Brandt announced the end of her journey as 'Mazikeen' on social media. 

"Here we are, at the end of our journey you and I. We have laughed and cried, loved and lost and now we say goodbye, you and I," Brandt wrote on Instagram. 

"Thank you for helping become her. For working alongside me, for showing up. I’ve made life long friendships. I’ve learned some incredible lessons. I’ve grown & I’m a better artist & actress for knowing you. To the fans, none of it was possible without you. You embraced us and a demon with heart," Brandt added. 

In 2019, Brandt went viral on social media after her character, 'Maze', spoke Afrikaans in the series. 

Social media and fans could not get enough of the hilarious and proud moment.
