While the British actor has always been in good shape, fans will know that he underwent a serious transformation following the show's revival on Netflix, something he credits to his trainer Paolo Mascitti. 

Tom reportedly gained 20 pounds of muscle after the show was rescued by the streaming service for its fourth season and has managed to maintain his impressive figure throughout the last three seasons.

Meanwhile, back in September Tom revealed he's hoping to work on something "completely different" when he Lucifer concludes later this year. He told Square Mile: "I am going to find myself in that similar territory in that people are going to expect one thing from me now.

"And I would like to surprise them and do something completely different. That's always been my thought process."
