It is always difficult to say goodbye to a character who has been embodied for several years. Tom Ellis and Lauren German experienced this when bidding farewell to the Lord of the Underworld and Chloe after six seasons of Lucifer.
In the final season of the Netflix series, Rory (Brianna Hildebrand), the daughter of Lucifer and Chloe, comes from the future to take revenge on Lucifer who abandoned him before he was born. But the trio eventually realized that Lucifer had to stay in Hell to help the Lost Souls, that Chloe had to stay on Earth with Rory before she died and joined Morningstar in the Shallows.
Asked by Variety, the two actors affirmed that they were very happy with the finality of the series. For Tom Ellis, “The idea that Lucifer would learn something from this experience with humans and use his humanity was what we were heading towards. Rory’s arrival has enriched this story. […] The fact that Lucifer was a father enriched the story. While it wasn’t something we were going to tell originally, it made the ending even more satisfying. “
Same story with Lauren German: “There is such a beautiful mixture of feelings at the end as we say goodbye to Lucifer, which breaks our hearts, but we are happy to see Chloe with Rory and then it’s the icing on the cake with Chloe who spends eternity with Lucifer helping people. “
Their best memories
Also in the interview for Variety, the duo talked about their best memories of season 6 and for Lauren German, this is definitely the last day of filming:
“I went from a scene on the throne kissing Tom to a scene where I walk over to the piano to say goodbye. That day was so beautiful and reflected the spirit of the show and our team. […] I realized how beautiful our series was and the people who worked with us were lovely.
It was a magical day. Tom and I ended the day with the last scene of the series, which is just beautiful. And then we all hugged, Tom and the showrunners gave some nice speeches. I will never forget that day. “
Tom Ellis for his part keeps in mind the day the series was saved! The actor explains as follows: “We all cared deeply about it and finding out how much other people treasured the show, really watched and loved it, it was amazing. It gives you faith in yourself and a lot of energy. “
It is true that Lucifer was canceled by Fox then saved by Netflix then got a bit of a break with a final season. This time, the adventures of the Lord of the Underworld are well and truly over and ended in apotheosis with a satisfying finale, as much for the fans as for the actors.
