Lucifer Ups Tricia Helfer to Regular as the Mother From Hell — First Photo

Tricia Helfer apparently made a mother of a first impression on Lucifer producers: Just weeks after she was first cast as the mother of Tom Ellis’ titular devil and D.B. Woodside’s Amenadiel, the actress has already been promoted to a full-fledged series regular, TVLine has learned.

The exclusive image of Helfer alongside Ellis and Woodside underscores the fact that mom essentially falls into the same demo as her two sons. “I heard it put, ‘She’s not really that much older [than Lucifer and Amenadiel],’ the Battlestar vet assured TVLine. “But it will all make sense once you see it.”

Helfer — who will debut in Lucifer’s Season 2 premiere on Monday, Sept. 19 at 9/8c — went on to tease that viewers will “very quickly” realize what the deal is with Charlotte, who’s been trapped in Hell for thousands of years by her ex-husband, God, “We’re not going to leave people guessing. There’s been enough of that with the concern that she’s escaped from Hell.”

    I love the expression on Lucifer’s face. It’s like ‘You see what I have to deal with?!’

    Really looking forward to season 2.

    Am I the only one that thinks that the image would have been better with Tricia standing in the middle instead of Lucifer? Just a wee bit sitcom-y, but I think they could have pulled it off.

    • Nicole Walker says:

      Yeah, since she is Mom, she should be the one standing over her two kids but since Luci’s the lead, I’m guessing he gets the top spot ;)

    • Katherine215 says:

      Haha, I thought the same thing! The balance is wrong, it’s driving me crazy. I get that he’s the lead and that’s why he’s standing, but ugh, it’s just off balance!

    • Wordsmith says:

      Then again, we know that they’re hardly a traditional family, so perhaps the unconventional positioning is a subtle but intentional statement.

    What’s funny, and I’m still in the camp that there is something more to Chloe than meets the eye (I have been in the camp that somewhere in her history is an angel and either she got it activated when she ‘died’) but if there isn’t, well, aren’t we seeing perhaps the reason that Lucifer is so intrigued by Chloe?

  4. Linda Cusano says:

    She’s too young to play his mother.

  5. Connie Naylor says:

    Love Tricia Helfer. She was so perfect in Battlestar with a nonchalant bad side but with a good side for those things she cared about. Great acting with merely facial expression. Anxious to see the season premiere. So happy she was made a regular. She will have great chemistry with the rest of the cast.

  6. James third says:
