Hot on the heels of the news that Tricia Helfer has been cast as the devil’s mum (see here) in season two of FOX’s Lucifer, we now learn that Aimee Garcia, who played Jamie Batista in seasons six to eight of Dexter, has been cast as a new regular character.
According to Deadline, she’ll be playing Ella Lopez, the police department’s new forensic scientist. Ella grew up in a rough neighbourhood in Detroit among a strong Catholic family with five brothers. Her mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Lucifer as they get to know and love her “quirky ways”.
Lucifer stars Tom Ellis as Austin Powers pretending to be the devil, taking a vacation from Hell and owning a night club in LA.
