Lucifer’s Tom Ellis revealed what his character’s deepest desire is as he remains on Earth and spends his time between mortals and celestial beings.
LuciferTom Ellis shared what is number one on his character’s wish list.
Ellis shared that the devilish detective would have several things to do on his wish list, but “number one would be getting drunk,” during a live question and answer session on StageIt.
“We always play with him that he can’t get quite drunk,” Ellis added. “Because he has a kind of heavenly sobriety that stops him even though he tries. So here we go. That’s on his wish list, to get properly drunk one day.”
The actor starring Lucifer also shared that his current number one goal on his personal wish list is to “get vaccinated” against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although the Devil has tried several times to drink under the table after a tragedy occurs, such as after he kills his brother Uriel or his ex-girlfriend Eve brings a disorder to life, and is always seen drinking whiskey from a moment to moment, he is notoriously unable to get drunk.
Lucifer Co-showrunner Joe Henderson revealed in February that the Devil will face more problems than he has tried to avoid, namely his father, in season 5b. Henderson shared that a large part of the second half of the show’s fifth season will revolve around Lucifer confronting his identity as “the wayward son.” He added that Lucifer and his brother Amenadiel (DB Woodside) will have “tremendously different perspectives on the arrival [on Earth] his father’s “.
When asked how exactly God’s coming will affect Lucifer, Henderson shared: “Much of Lucifer’s relationship with God has to do with this distance.” He added that casting Dennis Haysbert as God allowed the show to take on a “warmth” in its portrayal of Lucifer’s dead father.
“[Haysbert] He plays against the guy you’d expect, but he also relies on a kind of fatherly energy that he gives, “she added.” He has that presence of the Father that you don’t want to disappoint … angry with you at any moment … And that opens Lucifer in ways that he has chosen to close previously. “
Lucifer stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, Lauren German as Det. Chloe Decker, DB Woodside as Amenadiel, Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin, Kevin Alejandro as Det. Dan Espinoza, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen Smith and Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez. The first half of season 5 is now streaming on Netflix.
