South African actress and TV personality Pearl Thusi,who plays Harvard lawyer Dayana Mampasi, in the international ABC network TV series Quantico will not be returning in season 3.

Thusi’s exit comes after news that original cast member Yasmine Al Massri, who played twins Nimah and Raina, would not be returning to the show.

Thusi's character was introduced at the beginning of season two.

After a strong first season, the show's viewership declined sharply in season two causing a creative overhaul of the series and leadership changes .
