The couple solved numerous crimes in this series which began life on Fox, was canceled after three seasons and then returned for three more seasons on Netflix thanks to the mobilization of
The Associated Press interview with Tom Ellis and Lauren German took place virtually from New York, and the members of the duo look very different from their characters on screen. Besides the lack of a costume – Lucifer Morningstar having a weakness for three-piece suits and Detective Chloe Decker often wearing jeans, a jacket and a badge – the couple took advantage of the end of the series to change their hairstyles. Lauren German’s hair is very short, and Tom Ellis’s hair is curly.
I call it a midlife hair crisis I cut them and bleached them, explains Lauren German.
It’s my natural look, adds Tom Ellis. For several seasons of Lucifer, I had to straighten my hair. I don’t regret that time, and love my curls as well as the New York humidity.
Nostalgia for the end
The two protagonists feel nostalgic with the end of this adventure, the filming of which ended last March.
We finished filming the show, so the nostalgia set in more and more. There are so many beautiful memories. It was wonderful. Such a great way to end, and of course I’m excited to go and do other things too, underlines Lauren German, whose character of Chloe Decker, detective of the police of Los Angeles fell in love with the devil.
Tom Ellis agrees with her, adding that sometimes the memories are so fresh they don’t seem to go back that far.
We love the show and working on it so much, he says. But at the same time, if six years of doing something is a blessing, you also want to do other things. Our artistic soul wants to play other characters.
How will the series end?
As for whether fans will like the ultimate episode, Tom Ellis hopes everyone enjoys the end of the trip.
At the start of the sixth season [alerte aux divulgâcheurs], Lucifer is expected to take the place of God, who retired at the end of the fifth season. Lucifer survived a return to Heaven and defeated his twin brother, Michael (also played by Tom Ellis), in a battle for the supreme office. For her part, Chloe Decker gave up her job in the police force to be her consultant, a reversal of the situation, since Lucifer has been a consultant for the Los Angeles police force for all these years.
We’re really happy with the ending we have, and I think it’s a great and great ending, as well as a great idea, Tom Ellis thinks. I keep my fingers crossed that people like him. If they don’t like it, it will be disappointing, but it won’t be the end of the world. They will leave anyway with all of their experience of Lucifer over six seasons.
After six years, the duo are now much better known to the general public.
In the television business these days there is so much content that for us to be on a show that people know and recognize and have at least one family member watching is a huge achievement., points out Tom Ellis.
It’s really charming, the comments we receive, adds Lauren German, who does not want to take too much credit since she did not write the series.
She says fans told her that Lucifer had made them want to pursue a career in the police force. Others told her that the romantic relationship between Chloe and Lucifer gave them tools to overcome their relationship problems.
Knowing that you have touched someone, even in the smallest way, it really touches me and it makes me happy, she concludes.
The distribution of Lucifer also includes DB Woodside as the angel Amenadiel. Rachael Harris plays psychologist Linda Martin, Lesley-Ann Brandt is demon Maze, Kevin Alejandro plays Detective Daniel Espinoza and Aimée Garcia is scientist Ella Lopez.
All 10 episodes of the sixth season will be live on Netflix starting at 3 a.m. on September 10 in Canada.
