We recently found out that Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Powers, Suits) had joined the cast of the second season of Fox's Lucifer as the mother of the titular Devil and his brother Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), and now thanks to TV Line we have our first official look at the character following some sneaky set snaps. “I heard it put, ‘She’s not really that much older [than Lucifer and Amenadiel],’ Helfer explained to the site. “But it will all make sense once you see it. We’re not going to leave people guessing. There’s been enough of that with the concern that she’s escaped from Hell.” "Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth.

Tricia Helfer on Playing Lucifer's (Too?) Young Mom: 'It Will All Make Sense'

26 June 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Tricia Helfer could be forgiven if “What the hell?!” was her first reaction to being cast on Fox’s Lucifer as mother to both Tom Ellis and D.B. Woodside.

Obviously, the role of Charlotte is “going to have its challenges,” the actress acknowledged with a laugh when TVLine spoke to her at this week’s Saturn Awards. “I heard it put, ‘She’s not really that much older [than Lucifer and Amenadiel].’ But it will all make sense once you see it.”

Aimee Garcia joins the cast of Lucifer season 2

25 June 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Aimee Garcia (Dexter) has signed on for a series regular role in the second season of the DC/Vertigo adaptation Lucifer, where she’ll play forensic scientist Ella Lopez. The character description reads as follows:

“A bit of a walking contradiction, Ella is described as 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 (Tom Ellis), and the rest of the department, as they get to know and love her quirky ways.”

In addition to Tom Ellis, Lucifer also stars Lauren German, »

‘Battlestar Galactica’ alum Tricia Helfer’s next role: the mother from Hell, literally

21 June 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tricia Helfer is set to play the mother from Hell. No, really, actually from Hell — the Battlestar Galactica alum has been cast as the Devil’s mom in Lucifer, Fox’s show loosely (very loosely) based on the Lucifer DC Comics series that is itself a spin-off of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. The model-turned-actress has got alluringly devious down, so this seems like an excellent fit. Season 1 of Lucifer ended with the Prince of Darkness being tasked by God with capturing a soul that’s escaped from Hell. That soul is none other than Lucifer’s mum. Here is the official character description for Helfer’s character, named Charlotte: “Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth. Once reunited with Lucifer, it will become clear that she’s the one he takes after. Mom is fearless and »

Lucifer Season 2: Tricia Helfer Cast as the Devil's Mom!

21 June 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It's no surprise Lucifer's mom would have a megawatt smile.

Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) has been cast as Lucifer's mom, Charlotte. Like her son, she's gorgeous and quite a handful.

Helfer will recur for all of Lucifer Season 2 and the mother/son storyline is expected to be the central storyline of the season.

The story, as was teased on Lucifer Season 1 Episode 13, goes that Charlotte has been trapped in Hell for thousands of years by her ex-husband, God.

The Mother of Angels is now freed and walking the earth, where she is united with her sons.

As soon as they start spending a little time together, it will become abundantly clear Lucifer doesn't fall from from his mother's side of the family tree.

Charlotte is fearless and has a strong conviction for who she is and what she does.

However, where she parts ways with her son is in her feelings on humanity. »
