Latino beauty Aimee Garcia loves fantasy shows. While she’s currently playing forensic scientist Ella Lopez in the second season of fantasy series Lucifer (2015-current), she’s also worked on Supernatural (2005-current) as nerdy Nancy in season 3 (2008) and scientist Jae Kim in 2014 reboot movie RoboCop. “I used a lot of YouTube videos to do research for my role as a forensic expert,” says the 37-year-old. “I love how quirky and crazy Ella is!”
While Ella is full of confidence, the 1
actress admits to being an introvert growing up. “I was a nerd and in all the advanced classes,” she laughs.
Aimee was born in Chicago and 2
speaks fluent Spanish thanks to her Mexican and Puerto Rican immigrant mom and dad, who only spoke their native language when Aimee was growing up.
Her parents are proud of her rising 3
career, but Aimee admits that her nude scene as nanny Jamie in season 8 (2013) of drama show Dexter (20062013) was difficult. “It was a tough decision to make. For my dad it was harder to swallow as I forgot to tell him about it and he had his buddies over…”
Ella may love using tech tools, but 4
Aimee’s the opposite. She’d rather phone a friend than SMS them and she still sends her dad snail mail (post).
Besides golf, she loves dancing and 5
did all of her own dance routines in 2011 musical movie Go For It.
Multi-talented Aimee also sings 6
and in May 2016 she performed the US national anthem at the start of an LA Dodgers pro baseball game.
And while she stays trim and toned 7
with yoga, she jokes that “I cannot say no to a really good dark chocolate with sea salt!”
