AIMEE GARCIA JOINS “LUCIFER” IN SERIES REGULAR ROLE OF “ELLA”
Ella Lopez is the department’s new forensic scientist…and she sure does love her job. Ella is a bit of a walking contradiction. She’s brainy but spiritual. Warm but tough. 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 (and the rest of the department) as they get to know and love her quirky ways.
