“Lucifer” has added “Dexter” alum Aimee Garcia to the cast as a series regular.
Garcia will play Ella Lopez, a forensic scientist, who’s described as “brainy but spiritual, warm but tough.”
Some of Lopez’s background is “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. It also explains why she’s always felt comfortable in the tough, male-dominated world of law enforcement. Her mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Lucifer (Tom Ellis), and the rest of the department, as they get to know and love her quirky ways.”
