Hot on the heels of learning that Tricia Helfer will be playing “Lucifer’s” mother in Season 2 of the popular Fox series, some additional casting news has come in that features a very familiar face…
Per Deadline, Aimee Garcia (“Dexter,” “Rush Hour”) has joined the “Lucifer” cast as a new regular during the second season.
She will play Ella Lopez, the Police Department’s new forensic scientist, who truly loves her job. She grew up in a pretty rough neighborhood in Detroit, but also in a strong Catholic family, under the watchful and protective eye of her five brothers… which might explain some of her opposing personality traits. Her mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Lucifer (and the rest of the Department) as they get to know and love her quirky ways.
“Lucifer” Season 2 kicks off on Monday, September 19th.
