Lucifer Season 3: Tom Ellis and Tom Welling Go Off Script

The biggest addition to Lucifer this season has been the casting of Tom Welling as Marcus Pierce. The character has come in and changed the dynamic between almost all of the characters on the show. Fox had him sit down with series star Tom Ellis and ask each other questions in an "Off Script" video series. This is the recently released second part.


One of the question involved Welling talking about directing, as he directed seven episodes of Smallville, and how you go about directing yourself. He also talks about how you get a sense of accomplishment from being a director that you don't really get as an actor.

Ellis is asked about Comic-Con and he talks about how everything blurs together and how at one of the show he rand into the two guys he used to share a flat with in London, James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) and Jesse Spencer (Chicago Fire) completely out of the blue. Then Welling explains how after he had initially turned down playing Clark Kent, something got him to change his mind and join Smallville. Welling is convinced that they choose him because they had gone through every other possible actor.

Lucifer airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
