As a result of his work, he crosses paths with forensic scientist Ella Lopez.

Throughout the past four series of Lucifer, Ella has been unlucky in love but by the sounds of it, she has finally met the man of her dreams.

Aimee Garcia who plays Ella Lopez spoke to Entertainment Weekly in December 2019 about Ella’s new love interest.

She said: “It’s just bad news bears in the love department for Ella [at the beginning of season 5], which I like because she can’t be perfect.

“Then, she finally, finally, finally, dates a good guy.

“And she lets him, and it’s so much more intimate because it’s not just physical.

“They go to Star Trek conventions, and they go to dinner and there are wine and candles. They speak Klingon together.”

“It’s a match made in heaven. He’s the male version of Ella. He’s just as geeky.”
