Dexter alumna Aimee Garcia has joined the cast of Fox’s comic book-themed drama Lucifer as a new series regular for Season 2.

She will play Ella Lopez, the department’s new forensic scientist…and she sure does love her job. Ella 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.

The show recently added another key recurring, Tricia Helfer as Lucifer’s mom.

Known for her role as Dexter’s nanny Jamie Batista, Garcia recently co-starred in CBS’ Rush Hour and filmed the indie Sister Cities with Alfred Molina, Jackie Weaver, Jess Weixler and Kathy Baker. She is repped by Atlas Artists, Paradigm and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
