Lucifer Season 4 Cast
Inbar Lavi plays Eve, the biblical first woman on Earth, who was famously inveigled by Lucifer to eat the forbidden fruit, though it’s sounding like that narrative will prove to be a lascivious metaphor on the series. According to the official synopsis of Lavi’s Eve (via TV Insider):
“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.”
Consequently, the introduction of Eve telegraphs a biblical love triangle with Chloe, who’s now in the know about Lucifer’s nature. However, there’s an additionally intriguing aspect here, since Lucifer just spent Season 3 in a rivalry with Lt. Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling), Chloe’s immediate-superior-turned-love-interest, who was revealed to be Cain, son of Eve and perpetrator of the biblical first murder. The victim of said murder, Cain’s brother Abel, also briefly appeared on Lucifer in season 3, manifesting as a habitual womanizer put into the body of a woman (Lauren Lapkus).
Lavi, an Israel-born actress, has recently fielded a TV run on the Bravo! series, Imposters, having banked runs on The Last Ship, Sons of Anarchy, Gang Related and Underemployed. She’s also appeared in films such as the Vin Diesel-starring fantasy-actioner, The Last Witch Hunter, House of Dust, For the Love of Money and Getting that Girl.
