Zumbado is best known for playing Denise Martinez in Netflix’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, opposite Rachel Bloom. 

She made her acting debut in the comedy film Identify Thief in 2013 and went on to star as Jeny in the film Need for Speed alongside Aaron Paul, Dakota Johnson, Dominic Cooper and Rami Malek.

Zumbado has previously starred in Rosewood, Our Brand is Crisis, and NCIS, both the Los Angeles and New Orleans versions.

Zumbado recently landed herself the role of Paloma Ball in season five of The Magicians, which will premiere on Wednesday, January 15 2020 on Netflix. 

He even set the handcuffs to a timer, which would unlock after 16 hours, setting Delilah free, which would give him enough time to flee the country to Mexico.

However, things did not go to plan and Joe ended up being trapped in LA, with Forty Quinn (James Scully) where he was spiked with drugs. 

On an acid trip, Joe started to hallucinate that he killed somebody but did not know who, so the next day when he arrived at the storage unit and discovered Delilah’s lifeless body, he was convinced he had been the one to do the murderous deed.

In a shocking twist, Joe’s on and off girlfriend Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) revealed that she was the killer.

Love had broken into Joe’s storage unit overnight and killed Delilah to protect Joe and their unborn baby, believing Delilah would turn Joe in to the police once she was free. 

As a result, Deliah’s 15-year-old sister Ellie was left orphaned with Child Protection Services close behind her.

Seeing his younger self in Ellie, Joe gave her money to move to Florida so she could avoid being taken into care. 

He promised to send her money every month and set her up with a fake identity when she got there.

Before she left, Joe confessed he had been the one to kill Henderson to which Ellie replied: “Burn in hell.”

At the end of the episode, it was revealed that Joe had stuck to his word and had continued to support Ellie’s new life.

For now, Delilah’s death remains unsolved by the LAPD.
