Everyone loves Ella and Lucifer’s trip to Vegas, including Aimee Garcia. She loved getting to work with professional dancers and wear an authentic Vegas showgirl headdress.

I started my career as a professional dancer, so for me personally, it was a really nice 360 back to my original roots and it was so much fun.

Another episode Garcia loves is the musical episode, which featured a performance that took over 200 professional dancers, musicians, and actors to pull off!

The episode’s memorable football field dance sequence required the large group to coordinate and complete the complex number before the sun went down.

That particular moment was really special because it felt like we were doing a BRoadway show.

 What stands out to Garcia is the honor to play a brown woman in STEM who resonated with fans from all walks of life.

Science teachers [have] come up to me to say ‘Hey, I play some of Ella’s scenes in my science class because Ella makes science cool.

At conventions, people often cosplay as Lucifer himself or superheroes, so she was surprised to see young girls dress up as her character.

It has been an absolute honor to play this dorky, goofy, hug-loving scientist.
