Inbar Lavi

Thanks to Netflix, ‘Lucifer’ lives on, following its cancellation at FOX.  With a (hopefully) bright future ahead, the series is introducing new characters and Inbar Lavi is stepping in as Eve, described as “the original sinner herself.”  Apparently, Eve has been trapped in the Garden of Eden ever since that whole snake and apple thing, way back when.

According to the press release:

“After an eternity with Adam, she’s grown restless in her marriage and longs for a less predictable time when things were exciting. Naughty. Dangerous. She misses her hot and heavy first love…the charming rogue who tempted her so many years ago. That’s right, the devil himself…Lucifer.”

Lavi played the seductive lead in the Bravo con artist series ‘Imposters’, so the role of Eve sounds like it could be tailor-made for her.  It sounds as though her introduction will also complicate things between Lucifer and Chloe.

Before ‘Imposters’, Lavi had roles on the shows ‘Underemployed’, ‘The Last Ship’ and the revival of ‘Prison Break’.  She also appeared on episodes of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, ‘Castle’ and ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ among others, and on the big screen in the Vin Diesel flop ‘The Last Witch Hunter‘.

‘Lucifer’ showrunners, Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich have already expressed that they are excited to be moving from the PG-13 mainstream FOX network, to the more loosely moderated streaming service Netflix, because it will allow them to incorporate more adult themes, more frights and violence and, yes, nudity.  Don’t expect full frontal or anything, but they have all but promised a glimpse or two of lead actor Tom Ellis’ butt.  And with the seductive Eve joining the story, expect things to get spicy soon.

Ellis himself posted an image on Instagram showing his workout progress to ensure that he looks fit onscreen.

And in case you thought maybe Ellis would only be going shirtless, he posted the following image as well:

Hmmm I wonder what go’s in here? #LuciferOnNetflix #bts 😈

Yes, it appears that Ellis has been fitted for a… *ahem* “cock sock” a flesh colored pouch with a drawstring used by male actors to sheath their privates while filming intimate scenes.  So there’s something to look forward to!

‘Lucifer’ reportedly went into production in August and will be released in the latter half of 2019.  Netflix doesn’t usually announce exact release dates until shortly beforehand, but check back for any updates as they become available.
