Fox's Lucifer Casts Lina Esco As Mazikeen


Lina Esco, 29, has been cast in Fox's next comic book based television series Lucifer, which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros TV.

Deadline reports that Esco will play Maze, which is short for Mazikeen. They describe the role as "Lucifer's best friend Maze, a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman." In the comics, Mazikeen is one of the only people that Lucifer has genuine affection for. She has a unique face as one side is gorgeous while the other is disfigured. Her facial deformity is so bad that it impairs her speech. She was created by Neil Gaiman and first appeared in his Sandman comics. 

Esco is perhaps best known for playing Jimmy Smits' daughter in the short-lived CBS television series Cane. More recently, she starred and directed the 2014 feature Free The Nipple.


Lucifer, will tell the tale of Lucifer Morningstar, who is the Lord of Hell, but gets bored and decides to move to another hellish locale ... Los Angeles. There he decides to help the local police put away criminals. Why? Because why the hell not.
