“I’m pretty sure I cried,” Modrovich (top, near right) admits of joining (clockwise, from next to Modrovich) Ellis, Woodside, Kevin Alejandro, Lauren German, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, and Rachael Harris at their first table read after a fan campaign helped to save the show. “It made it so much more special that we [have] this new family member, which is the fans. They really became part of our Lucifer family.”
Tom Ellis, who plays LAPD consultant Lucifer Morningstar, better known as Satan himself, “was a kid in a freakin’ candy store” when it came to filming the finale’s splashy song-and-dance sequence, says co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich. “We saved that for the very last day of shooting, [and] we were all chomping at the bit for it.”
For their showdown over the fate of angel Amenadiel’s baby, DB Woodside (Amenadiel) and Vinessa Vidotto, who plays his sister Remiel, “had a full-day shoot in an abandoned mall,” says co-showrunner Joe Henderson, who had scoped out the location for a karaoke-parlor fight in Season 3. “We put it in our back pocket as a place we’d want to shoot [later].”
“None of my tailored suits from last season fit,” admits Ellis (right, with Inbar Lavi as Lucifer’s first love, Eve). He says the 15 pounds of muscle he packed on before Season 4 started “ties in with the character” and his hedonistic reunion with his biblical ex-lover.
For scenes when Lucifer shows his demon body, Ellis dons a motion-capture technology suit so the special-effects team can digitally add it in later. Henderson says that was a challenge for costar German to act against: “She’s got to feel heartbreak and anguish over a [man] who’s just got dots on his face and a black skullcap on his head. And she nailed it!”
Idle hands are the Devil's playground. Good thing, then, that Netflix scooped up the former Fox series to keep the cast busy!
